1976 FIAT 126 – RESTORED EXAMPLE – SUPER CONDITION
This stunning lime green Fiat 126 500 was imported from Italy in 2015 by a well known Maserati specialist in the UK . In January 2017 it was treated to new track road ends, rear shocks and new lower shocker bushes as well as four new tyres. The vehicle was then sold to the second owner as a suprise for his wife so he set about recommissioning the drivetrain to ensure it drove perfectly for her. This was only in June 2017 and the bill amounted to £3437 in total1 Works carried out included the following:
New stub axle/ leafspring bushes

After all this the lady did not like the car!!!!!! So made her husband sell it, hence why we have it today. Now ready to be enjoyed by its next (appreciative!) custodian.
This car represents unbelieveable value for money especially considering the money that has been recently lavished upon it.
