1976 Fiat X1/9 1.3 L
A sturdy lightweight car
Mainly only the head gasket at 82000 km.
Carburetor gasket just after I got it.
Great little car, the 1.3 is lacking a bit, most of the time it starts first time and flies when at temperature.
Could do with a 5 speed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree, I had mine converted to a 2 ltr & 5 speed 10 yrs ago, which is a really worthwhile change.
Mine's for sale now. Never been crashed.

I also agree re the 5-speed. I have been told however, that despite the lack of a fifth ratio, the 4-speed is actually a more durable gearbox.

I agree the 4 speed lacks top end.

I have the 1300cc and its now for sale which is very unfortunate as I loved this car, used it as a daily until I put it in storage.
