Metallic Blue FiaT X19 1500 Bertone first registered in August 1987 and bearing its original interesting registration number E777 RUM. Outstandingly sound unmolested condition with low mileage and an exceptionally good history. Very full documentation including 1987 Purchase Invoice, service book,handbook, and a very large number of invoices, MOT certificates and tax discs. Effectively two lady owners from new. The first owner kept the car until July 2000, and the second owner until October 2019. Now offered for private sale by the family of the second owner.
The paintwork, bodywork and interior are sound and attractive. A small repair was made to the underside of the driver`s sill at some time in the past. Otherwise the car is free from the rust and corrosion often associated with this model. In response to enquiries I have removed the carpet and sound proofing in the rear trunk. My inspection showed that there is no corrosion in the panel between the trunk and the engine compartment, nor in the boot floor and the deep wells on each side. All these area have at some time been waxoyled. I will email my pictures of these areas on request. I also have internal pictures of the "nose" of the car and all four strut tops.
The car has had little use in recent years and the low recorded mileage of 42000 is supported by MOT and service records. The original carpets are unworn and are protected by over carpets.In recent months the car has been fully serviced and MOT tested. Work included the fitting of a new cam belt and alternator belt, brake master cylinder, rear brake caliper, water pump and battery in addition to plugs, points, oil and air filters etc. The car starts readily and runs with good oil pressure and temperature. The steering and handling are very pleasing and a new clutch was fitted less than 1000 miles ago. Five speed gearbox. Pirelli tyres on all road wheels. Original alloy spare wheel. Original jack.
This is a very honest car which has been kept garaged and well maintained and presents a good opportunity to buy an original ca with excellent provenance well suited to long term ownership.
