Another Tipo!

More info to follow. On closer inspection it needs a good bit of work but very solid underneath.

Re: Another Tipo!

More pics to follow, drove nicely on the way home bar a scary incident with the oil light coming on while going around a roundabout! A few obvious issues are a leaking near rear shock and damp off rear brake back plate. Engine is obviously leaking oil somewhere and resembles a damp oil soaked rag! Has a few potential corrosion issues on the rear doors (bubbling rust). Car is very solid underneath which is great. Rust around the sunroof does not fill me with confidence but there are no leaks. I will post more pics when I get the chance. Plenty of other issues on it to keep me busy too!

Re: Another Tipo!

You have experience of how rusty these cars can get, so it sounds like you have a good buy. If its solid behind the front wheels I'm jealous

"... a scary incident with the oil light coming on while going around a roundabout!"

No worries, mine has been doing that, on and off since I bought it 17 years ago.

Seems to be solid enough behind the front wheels!
