Re: Fiat Strada 105TC

It was a VW Golf GTI beater in it's time with 105HP.
It is rare, because most are rusted away long ago.

Realistically not more than a couple of hundred quid.

ABSOLUTELY NOT NOT NOT NOT

From the pictures there is obviously some visible surface problems however all the body trim looks intact and together.

Can't comment on the underlying / internal (as is closed box sections etc) condition but the EXTERNAL trim alone is worth 500 in spare parts value.

Lights add more value (UK headlamps are no longer available for starters) and the list goes on and on.

I would not sell this car for less than 1500 to 2000 pounds as I could easily get this value in spare parts alone.

Selling a car for spare parts is not an easy route to take but often the sum of the parts exceeds the whole purchase price for obvious reasons.

Those that already have the car are looking for rare spares and not the complete car. Those wanting to buy a complete car to restore/run/perfect know there is much expense involved.

If it was an absolute rot box then fine! A buyer would have massive bills to get the car back in shape. Any parts traders out there would get a snip at 650.

That depends on your interpretation of "beater"

Top trumps anyone?

Golf GTI 8v

0-60 8.1s
Max speed 118mph
Power to weight ratio 121bhp per ton

Strada 105tc

0-60 9.2s
Max speed 111mph
PWR 113 bhp per ton

Having said that i used to own a 105TC back in the day & still own a 1986 Golf GTI and can honestly say that the Strada was a hell of a lot more fun to drive.

Although I know nothing about that Strada's value I'd guess it must be quite valuable due it's rareity, a non running mk2 Golf GTI is worth 500 so a non running Strada 105 must be worth more.

Re: Fiat Strada 105TC

The performance figures you quote are about right and that is why Fiat immediatley repsonded with the Strada/Ritmo 130TC. This car did knock the Golf of its perch.

The huge difference with the 130TC was the large but absolutely near flat torque car. This made it, for its time and just about still, the best open road point to point driving car.

Once the carbs are correctly set-up and balanced then many German press tests go 0 to 100kph (62mph) in 7.5 seconds. For me I don't give a monkey's about 0-60 times. What is difficult to measure is real driveabilty, point to point, etc.

Track tests did always show the 130TC beating the Golf GTI but that is and unfair test and comparison for BOTH cars.

The later Golfs nailed the performance moderated by end user acceptability / driving comfort

The 130TC basically went for all out performance, handling etc. and with that came firm/harsh ride, heavy steering at low speeds and a load of other "not a family / everyday car" attributes.

The 105TC was a car just a little too early for the hot hatch market and when the Golf GTI appeared it was too late/solidly in production. The 130TC was a post Golf GTi response, too aggressive and too late to stem/stop the Golfs rapid rise in sales.

Is the Golf GTi a great car - absolutely YES - proven by history in terms of sales, etc.
Is the 130TC a better car - YES, in my honest opinion, but there the story ends unless you are a dedicated enthusiast and have actually driven one. Those that have, even after driving the Golf GTi, will attest to the 'extra special' 130TC ..........

Moving back to the original topic about 105TC value, much of the 105TC trim is the same (or near enough) the same as the 125TC/130TC models. This is what makes the spare parts value (for both 105TC and 130TC cars) very important.

The problem/difficulty with the spare Strada/Ritmo spare parts scene is that there are so few cars left out there. However a top notch original condition 130TC will/should be insured on an agreed classic car policy for a minimum of say 5000. (NOTE! there are very few of this quality level).

Lets follow this through.

Your 105TC/130TC is insured for and agreed 4000. You get hit taking out the rear quarter panel (no longer available so has to be hand made) and of course the side moulding that extends over the wheel arch to bumper. A classic car body specialist can hand form and create one of panels in the absence of a mould/press patern.

Sadly plastic body mouldings (or any moulding like wheels) can not be economically reproduced if the original moulding are not available or have been reproduced.

So a rear quarter panel created from scratch costs say 500 to 1000. A large trim moulding would cost probably 1000 for mould creation alone. Now you see where the real value in rare spare parts comes from.

Car buyers look at the overall car, overall Glass Guide/Parkers Guide prices and totally forget that for many cars out there the real value is in the parts and not the car.

Those side graphics are terrible

But to a collector might be worth the asking price

Re: Fiat Strada 105TC

The 105HP Twin cam engine alone is worth the money, as it will fit ( with maybe some work) lot's of other models, like Uno, Punto etc.

Although its been 20 years since I killed my 105TC I'd say from memory that it was a better drive then my current Golf GTI from the same era.

Re: Fiat Strada 105TC

I have one of the two left on the road, mine is about perfect and worth about 3k so given the condition of yours would be less than 1k I think
