Hey VMSC, I am looking to sell my 1979 Fiat x1/9 race car. This is an Excellent opportunity to get into a competitive autocross or track day car. These x 1/9s are fairly reliable and inexpensive cars to maintain. The engine is in the right place, and these 1500 engines will take quite a bit of abuse. All of the hard work is done, the car needs some final prep work to be prepared to compete again.

1500- 5 Speed Carburated model (Semi rare, transitional car. Most 79 models are 1300 4 speed cars, late 1979 and early 1980 models were 1500 5 speed carbed. Late 1980-1989 were 1500 5 speed Bosch fuel injected.

First and foremost I have the SCCA log book for this car, and I have a bunch of information on the cars history as well as the title for the car.

-1500cc engine, rebuilt
-FAZA camshaft
-balanced and blue printed bottom end
-Lancia Beta 32DMTR carb (larger than stock carb, and more reliable than an emissions carb, was a legal upgrade for its class)
-header
-Updated clutch

-5 speed Transmission
-welded diff.

-The car has a fire suppression system
-Full cage with door bars
-Fuel cell
-Willwood brake proportioning valve
-4 front x 1/9 calipers on the car (rear has no e brake)
-Shock towers have been trimmed for coilovers and full range of adjust-ability
-Koni VW rabbit shock inserts.
-Extra front and rear sway bars come with the car
-3 1/2 sets of wheels and tires
-Extra cylinder head (that I believe may be a yugo head (higher compression))
-Clean title for the car.

The body is in fair shape, These cars have terrible rust issues, but this car is relatively solid. It has taken a light hit on the driver front fender. There was no other damage from that hit as it was more of a rub than a high impact situation.

-The Trailer has a clean title
-functioning lights
-new tires
-cleaned and repacked wheel bearings

Please contact me with questions, I am not interested in trades. I am looking to sell due to loss of storage.

I am asking $2500 for the whole package,  but that price is negotiable.

Please PM me with questions or interest you may have in the car. I am stretched a bit between work and life outside of work, so sending me a PM will hit my email on my phone which I will get pretty quick.

Wow. If you look under, "Autos and Autosports", I posted the topic "CL racecars". Yours is one I mentioned. Yours is a great deal, but I've almost finished reassembling one that I blew several years ago. You're right, the logbook is a huge selling point!

Hey thanks Pipefitter! I am hoping I can get the car to someone who will get it back out to some events. Fingers crossed.

I love the idea of getting this car.  But I'm just not ready to take on a project right now.
Good luck, it sounds like a great car!

 I would think with Dominion Raceway being built in Thornburg, selling it should get easier. At least I'm hoping so with my ITA car. IF I wasn't under a self imposed "auto and toy purchase moratorium", I'd scoop it up. Best of luck with your sale!

We have several events left this year, why not bring it out to one? I hear that the VMSC Vice President is very Fiat friendly and we would really like to see it run.

Thank you for the good idea, but the car is not currently ready to be run. It still needs some odds and ends taken care of.

 We have an event next weekend. If possible, you could tow it over there and let folks see it. Just a thought.
