Millhouse's 850 coupe project in Ohio

I was at an auction recently with my grandpa, and as we walked through the rows of over 400 cars I came across something that I had never seen before, had no idea what it was, but I fell in love with the classic look instantly. Did some searching on google and found it was a 1970 Fiat 850 coupe. I had to have it!

We went back to the auction the next day, and I waited all day to bid on this thing . It ended up going for a reasonably low price, and I was the high bidder I know it looks rough, but its surprisingly solid for its age. Just a few little holes here and there.

I loaded it up and took it home to see what I had bought. Engine and driveline are all there, wheels roll, new windshield was laying in the rather rough interior, and I found all the tail lights and some badges also.

Current plan for the car is to throw some new tires on it and see if I can get it running on the original engine. Ill keep posting slowly as I make progress. I will post pictures once I have enough posts to be allowed.

Well done. These cars are starting to get a bit thin on the ground world wide. I predict they will eventually be worth decent money!

Here's a few pics of the car. It's definitely rough and the interior is about shot. Very little rust though.
