Mk1 uno turbo Back with me after 11 years in a back garden

So yesterday after not seeing or hearing anything about my old mk1 been searching for 8 years for it not been taxed or moted so feared the worst that it had been scrapped or crashed but out the blue I had a message of a good friend saying thereís a green uno on eBay so i instantly went on and found my old uno I built 11 years ago but was in a very bad n sad state it was sentimental value to me and messaged the seller and agreed a deal i took delivery this morning I am so happy Iíve got it back I feel complete again now over the next few weeks will be totally stripped and assessed but shell is too far gone I think so will be building from ground up with another shell just like to thank James Nielsen for texting me and me getting the mk1 back what a Christmas present will be doing a full build thread too so stay peeled

It's a real shame to see something you put so much effort into, left to get into such a state due to someone else's neglect. Glad you've got it back and can't wait to see the progress

Will love seeing this develope, but it looks like a massive operation. If only it had been found in a barn, not part of the garden.

Now that's a great move. Green motoring at its best. I know what my wife would say though..... These B small Fiats really get to you. I so want my 100HP back. I should never have sold him.

What's the engine? Delta HF 1.6 turbo?

Were there any earlier threads on here when you had the car before?
