They are around Rik, but very rarely appear, the last few I've been offered have all been parts-cars only with terminal rust hence I got the 90. You might find it easier to get a 116 Giulietta - the same mechanically but parts-wise in terms of trim, headlights etc..a hell of a lot easier to source here in NZ. I've owned one of each of the three series they made of them and they drive very nicely just like your GT. The 1.8l was the pick IMHO as it spun up a lot more freely than the later 2l models, although they were all very nice and I agree with you about the "unassuming looks".
