Fiat Manuals (genuine)

now i shouldnt be telling you this and 'you aint seen me'

but if your looking for 'genuine' paper manuals for fiats from the 131 right upto the coupe you need to listen up.

my local EX fiat dealer who have now been in the fiat trade for 30 odd years are selling up, they havent been an 'official' dealer for about 6 years now but have all the manuals/service update manuals/and service modification manuals from the year dot right upto about 6 years ago.

the boss there (geoff) would sell his granny for the right price, i would say give him a ring and make an offer, dont be silly and say 'give u a fiver for one book' make a serious offer maybe for the job lot.

also are lancia manuals (almost priceless now) inc some for the 4WD system.

now he doesnt know ive done this,thats not to say there not for sale, just that if dont ring they will be burnt or put in the skip.

so i recon if you ring and say' i hear your closing soon can i buy the manuals' you could well be in for a bargin ( hes a tough cookie on price )

this is not a joke or a scam i would just hate to see them burnt and for reasons i cant say i am not welcome or allowed to buy them myself.

i dont know the reaction you will get but its well worth a try for the cost of a call.


OH and 'you aint seen me' and you heard about this 'on the grape vine'

let me know how you get on.
