Re: 1996 Fiat Bravo 1.8 HLX - Ink Black

I drove the 20V Coupe' and Bravo HGT back to back when they were new and the Bravo felt wayward, top heavy and under steered like Bambi on ice. I didn't drive the HLX until I was looking for a GenIII 128 donor for my X-1/9 a couple of years ago.

The idea was to get a Punto HGT and swap the engine in there but the Bravo HLX has real power steering and AC so I could bin the pump and compressor, fit a supercharger and use injectors from a 16V or 16V Turbo Coupe' to get the air/fuel ratio back on track.

I drove the Punto HGT and it was as disappointing as expected but when I drove the Bravo HLX it was a different league and far too good to us as a donor. I didn't buy the Bravo and shelved the whole idea in the end after looking at a Punto HGT loom.

How much are you after ballpark-ish for your Bravo?

This is still for sale. I want an enthusiast to buy it. So I will sell it very cheap and chuck in all my spare parts. Many spare new service parts. I will add more details on spares tonight.

Re: 1996 Fiat Bravo 1.8 HLX - Ink Black

Liquid Knight now owns my 1.8 Bravo. You can see his progress with the car here; I am really enjoying his updates https://www.fiatforum.com/bravo-brav...ow-hlx-10.html


I had the 1.4 Bravo for over two years and this 1.8 Bravo for over six years. The 1.8 was a truly great and completely reliable car. With it being an older car that was in good condition it impressed everyone that took an interest in it.


I came very close to buying a Toyota GT86 but instead I went for this; a 1999 Alfa Romeo GTV V6 3.0
