Cool My New Fiat 126

well long story short, went to go get some bits powdercoated for my turbo seicento and come home with this instead lol

couldnt leave it there at the price they wanted its tidy as you like, even got custom seat covers made by the last owner, car looks like its been cared for most its life which is cool.

failed its mot on alot of stuff but itll be sorted down the garage in my spare time, might tax it and cruise it around as its funny to drive it seems so basic and cheap inside lol bopping up and down the road in it.

engine starts and runs but not sure on if its any good yet as not had time to have a good play with it yet, seems to lack a bit of power but im going to clean and service the engine, and if all else fails motorbike engine i think

only few tiny patches of bubble rust no rot as i can see but all will be revaled once i get it over the pit to look underneath

Re: My New Fiat 126

Good stuff mate. Nice find

I'd be tempted to restore, or turn it into a sleeper witha lot of power.

In the end, i thin a 1108 conversion and leave it pretty standard will be the best option.

Keep us all updated

Re: My New Fiat 126

yeah the little quad down the garage goes faster lol yeah i was thinking of trying the 1108cc with a remap chip in should be fun then gonna get it running right first though not sure if its meant to be this slow and gutless unless it needs a good service?

Re: My New Fiat 126

If it can hit 70 on a flat road then it's fine.

Re: My New Fiat 126

This is worth a look.

Not sure if the 500 is the same as the 126 engine wise?

Aye, they're identical in aircooled guise but the BIS is watercooled so a different kettle of fish. Loads of Polish guys have done conversions on the BIS though so it's doable, just takes a different route.

Good luck, and if you manage to do your 1108 conversion before me I'll kick your ass, lol.
