Registration No: E200 FLH
Chassis No: ZBB128AS007161876
MOT: November 2024
Inspired by the Autobianchi Runabout concept car, the X1/9 was introduced in 1972 as a replacement for Fiat's 850 Spider. Penned by Gandini, the monocoque bodies were initially produced by Bertone and then transported to Fiat's Lingotto factory for final assembly. However, in 1982, shortly after the mid-mounted four-cylinder powerplant had been increased in capacity from 1290cc to 1498cc, Bertone assumed responsibility for all aspects of the model's manufacture and these later cars were appropriately badged 'Bertone X1/9'. Production continued until 1989, by which time a total of 160,000 examples had been built - 140,500 by Fiat and 19,500 by Bertone. The model featured a handy Targa top and the Bertone versions included revised footwells for enhanced legroom.
First registered on the 24th August 1987, finished in Black with Orange two tone paintwork and a complementing Black leather interior, this X1/9 displays a credible recorded mileage of just 32,347 miles, at the time of consignment, on its zippy 1.5 litre engine with manual transmission. With just 5 former keepers from new, this is one of the later examples that were badged as Bertone X1/9s.
Following a period of storage, for many years, in May 2019 'E200 FLH' received recommissioning work and repairs to the tune of near £3,000 (invoice on file), which included an alternator, brake fettling, a CV boot, an oil cap, plugs, a water pump gasket, a fan belt, HT leads, fuse box and a new battery. Also benefitting from four new Avon tyres at that time, today the X1/9 presents in excellent condition, being described as ‘very well cared for’ by its owner in recent years, a collector of classics. Now for sale with 12 months MOT and with exceptionally low mileage, this is an ideal opportunity to acquire a nice example of the baby mid-engined icon.
