Bought a Fiat Strada 130tc Abarth (unused for 15 years)

My Mk1 Uno turbo is about 2 weeks away from being finished so i started looking for a Strada Abarth & found one with 32k that has been in a garage with a leaky roof since 1995.It was owned by this guy's sister from 1988 untill 94 when a car hit the drivers door & rear qtr.She didn't want to drive it anymore so he took it out for a test drive in Winter (icy) & hit a bollard.So he bought it in late 94 with the intention of restoring it but soon after bought a house,got married & had kids, so it sat there till 2 weeks ago when i picked it up.It's got full history up till october 94 with the tax running out in March 95.A friend did a check & it hasn't been taxed or mot'd since 1995.I think it might be the lowest mileage 130tc in the U.K. Can't wait to start restoring it.

Passenger side door & rear qtr has damage & rust where the paint was taken off in the accident.But the boot floor,rear panel,floors,rear inner arch,passenger side are rust free & solid.The engine & carbs sound soo crisp & quiet.Seats are very soft & interior looks untouched.All the original clips & pipes in the engine bay.
