Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

My sedicivalvole{ mk1, 5 doors, 1991} went to the happy hunting grounds because of the corrosion and other faults, but its heart after some renovation landed under the hood of tipo/tempra father, the 1987 regata





Thanks varesecrazy thanked for this post

Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

I really like what you`ve done with the Regata. I bet you have surprised few people with it A proper little "sleeper" car.

Thank you, the car performance is good, it is about 120-150 kg lighter than tipo sedici with the same engine. It has been manufactured as regata1300{ 1290ccm 69 hp lampredi sohc} in 1987, it was 890 kg with 1.3 before swap, now arround 1000 ,because of the very heavy 2.0 engine, bigger gearbox, brakes, heavier driveshafts etc. One thing I am going to improve is the gearbox, because now I have very long box from regata100S with 3.21:1 diff ratio. I do not need to drive 62 mph on second gear{6200 rpm on 2nd} and there are still too few highways in Poland to use its max 140 mph, so I acquired lancia prisma 1.6 mpi gearbox with shorter ratio of 3.59:1 to improve acceleration and reduce speed.

I have tons of pics of the car its really a fantastic car, after i bought it i changed all the belts, tensioner, idler, removed balancer belt, and spent a week fixing various faults (driveshaft rubbing on PAS metal pipe wearing a slot into it
bodily it has a huge dent down one side (door and wing) and a dented o/s wing too but i have replacement new oe fiat panels for it also the n/s rear qtr panel is badly rusted but it came with a new oe fiat genuine panel which is bolt on so i will get the whole body done.
i use it every day and cover huge miles in it, they are great cars.
now listed on EBAY

Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

Hi, I am back with another Tipo Sedici ...! I had a black one with red leather interior (interior purchased in Germany from a 2.0 GT < Arno is driving that car) and a red one with standard interior. More than 10 years without one .... Will pick it up mid-August. Restoration project (currently rebuilding a Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9).

Re: Sedicivalvoles that are still alive!

I downloaded data from the Dutch Motor Registry. There are 314 Tipo's Classic in the Netherlands with a Dutch plate, of which 97 are road worthy (rest is retired or under construction). Of these 82 are 1.4's, 8 are 1.6's, 2 are 1.8's, 1 is a 2.0 and 4 are 2.0 16v. Soon it will be 5 2.0 16v's ...;-).
