Abarth 1600

Here is a listing showing what has been gathered thus far to my studies for any "Abarth 1600" car that has been reported to my studies in one way or another during the past 4 decades almost. There is a lot to learn!

28 cars are listed by chassis number. We do not always know the entire Fiat number (or the "scocca" number), the Abarth type number, the engine number, the gearbox version, the body style or any history after the car was first delivered to a dealer in Italy or perhaps directly to its first customer. For cars that were exported when new, almost all the information comes from the cars themselves and quite a number (percentagewise) have turned up during the last few years. This tells me that there were several additional cars about which we know precisely nothing.

As always, I appreciate learning news about any car listed, any car not listed, and any corrections or clarifications that should be made.

Buon divertimento!

Scorpione Hi Vincent,

Photo at Abarth factory may have been taken by Studio Bertazzini (Abarth's Official Photographer for some time).

The Revs Institute in Florida USA have a digital archive of the Bertazzini Photos and others that may be very helpful to you. Below is the link (hope it works).

Should be helpful!

ORANGE1521 Who knows who made this photo in the Abarth factory or owns more pictures made on this day? I am looking for more pictures of the three Abarth Allemano spiders shown on the photo below.
Thank you very much for your help! Kind regards, Vincent.

I can help you scan and replicate in CAD, both the bodywork and also badges and lenses. I have helped other forum members here, am happy to help anyone requiring this service.

Kind regards,

Thank you very much.
I believe the reflector with the Abarth letter will be the most difficult part.
I Hope for more reactions, :-).

Thank you!

ORANGE1521 Dear All,

Getting back to the conversion, I can confirm it is home made.
Being able to investigate the car, all details point into the homed made direction.

This means i will do my best to restore the car back to original.

I have got two questions:
- If someone knows the car in the Albuquerque area, either in it original form.
The car used to be silver/grey metallic or in it's currently modified form.
Please contact me.
- Secondly if there are other owners of the 1600s spider or coupe, please contact me.
I am looking for parts and restoration pictures. All help is very welcome.

Thank you very much!
Kind regards, Vincent, my email is [email protected]

PG1964 It depends on the production year, the same happened with the contemporary 2200 model. Take a look here: 1959-1964 1600-2200-2400 ALLEMANO + ELLENA COUPE' | Berni Motori | Abarth
