MK1 1995 Barchetta. Orange RHD [N858KKH]

Hi everyone.
My personal circumstances have changed and so itís time to consider selling my Barchetta restoration project.

A rare opportunity to own a piece of Italian automobile history.

Before i advertise in the usual places I thought I would give the forum members a chance for first pickings. After all, you guys are the enthusiasts and I much prefer knowing it's going to an appreciative owner.

Located in Milton Keynes Buckinghamshire.
Purchased & delivered to me as a non runner on the back of a truck, I have spent the last three years lovingly reviving it.
I am at the point now where I regularly use it for work and the occasional excursion (Forza Live 2017)
Its an orange 1995 MK1 very rare RHD example with just over 90000 showing on the clock.
Here is what I have changed since I got it...
Replacement engine from a donor car which I was informed from the breakers, had done around 40000, and by the look of the clarity of the coolant water and the cleanliness of the oil after having been used for a while, I can believe it.
Much better than the engine I took out.
New Timing belt.
New Pulley.
New Pretentioner.
New Air filter.
New Oil filter.
Replacement new thrust bearing for the gearbox.
Stainless exhaust downpipe.
Stainless exhaust silencer.
Stainless exhaust muffler.
Stainless catalytic converter.
Spark plugs.
N/S headlight cluster complete.
Cooling system radiator complete.
4off Alloy wheels and new tyres ( I still have the original wheels if interested)
Replacement Brake servo unit.
2off Rear wheel hub bearings.
New battery.
New brake discs all round.
All calipers serviced and regreased for ease of future maintenance.
Both rear brake distribution mechanism serviced a springs replaced.
Car Radio and new speakers fitted.
Rear plastic window in the soft top replaced.
All locks dismantled, serviced and regreased and now central locking is back in working condition.

Working electric front windows.
Working electric mirrors
Working Key Fob immobiliser
Working radio.
No errors reported on dashboard.
Local Fiat garage full diagnostics check of the engine passed all tests last month.
MOT test passed this month (June) with no issues.

I have lots of paperwork/receipts including the RHD conversion.

The car is showing its age on the bodywork, nothing serious, but with a little more TLC can be made to look like a stunner. Previous owner must have lacquered it as it is peeling in a couple of places (just like my sun burn &#128515 but doesn't detract it's good looks.

As it is the MK1 version it is not too difficult to work on as it is not fitted with ABS or air conditioning and factory alarm extras which leave a little more room in the engine bay for tinkering.

Any trial. Open to sensible offers. Happy to answer any questions.

I can add more photos if required
