Uno 1989 Fiat Uno 70 SX 1.5 Mk1 project

For Sale
No MOT or tax, needs sills welding for another MOT.

Some of you may recognise this ultra rare Mk1 SX, as the X1/9 engine swap was documented on here! I had it from Chas when he left the country, I put it back on the road & I used it regularly for a few years, but changes in circumstance & the fact I`ve not been able to take it to my garage since the inner ULEZ started 18 months ago, means I`ve not used it or been able to work on it, otherwise I would have done the welding by now.

The MOT ran out last September, the tax ran out a couple of months ago, & as I`m within the ULEZ extension I wont be able to use it at all after August anyway, so I`ve decided to let someone else take over.

It needs welding to both sills for another MOT, + the spring on the brake bias valve has vanished. It may need more, I`ve not looked it over properly, theres nothing else glaringly obvious though. Theres a few minor bits of bodywork, & its slightly matted now, but it does polish up nicely & gets loads of compliments & thumbs up every time you go out in it!

The 1.5 engines still good, its still got a Mk1 turbo gearbox, its wearing Mk2 Turbo alloys, and is sitting on slightly lowered springs. It also has a turbo steering rack, a turbo front roll bar & green stuff front pads. It goes very well indeed, as you`d imagine, with an 85bhp X1/9 engine in it!

I`ve colour keyed the mirrors, & fitted a colour keyed grille (the original is included), & fitted a rare "Heckblend" rear reflector panel, which I imported from Italy (I fitted it with tape & the original number plate screw location, so it can be removed if you prefer it without). Theres also some of boxes of spares included.

I could chop it in for £2k under the ULEZ scrappage scheme, but as theres only 3 top of the range SX Mk1`s left on the road, I`d rather not do that, so I`m asking £1000.

I may be up for a swap with something ULEZ compliant (must be petrol, Seicento/Punto/Bravo/Stilo etc, 51 reg onwards, or pre-1984).

It starts, runs, drives & stops fine, but theres no MOT or tax now, so will need towing (or could be taken on trade pates).

Save this rare, desirable & quick little Uno!

If no one wants it whole, I may break it, so contact me if you need parts from it.

I`m in Barnet EN5, outer north London, not far from the M25 & A1.​
