Fiat 1100 Special in Australia

Today was a milestone in the restoration of a Fiat 1100 Special I bought through this web site and imported from Italy into Australia in 2015.

After some 500 hours of panel work the car came out into daylight for the first time.

I have enjoyed the lines of this little car ever since it arrived in Australia but getting the body and panels perfect has certainly been a challenge. It now sits in primer with no filler I am happy to say, ready for mechanicals, electrics, brakes, etc.

Some small modifications were made along the way to improve the details and lines. We have made a half metal tonneau that still has to be fitted, lowered the sill line at the back etc.

Thanks Spydaman,

The car is in the Geelong region as part of a collection of Italian cars and historic racing cars. Visitors are most welcome.

Other current projects include a Lancia Flaminia GT also purchased off AlfaBB, Alfa Giulia SS, Pininfarina's 1958 Fiat 1100 Coupe Turin show car, Moretti FJ, etc. All seem to take a long time but all will be finished.

Wow sounds like you have a great collection down there (couple of kilometres drive for me ) maybe one day I'll get to Geelong in one of my cars . The junior I have would do it no problems but I'd loose my license for sure it's just so easy to speed. Would still like to know what colour your thinking for the Fiat

Great looking car! I (and others, I'm sure) would be interested in the history.
