1980 Fiat 127 CL 0.9


A fun and cheap car


Broken thermal switch, a new one is very cheap.

Broken lock at the trunk, a new one is also very cheap.

Rust has started to appear.

General Comments:

Drives like a go-kart, especially now that I've changed the wheels and suspension.

It's actually rather comfortable when you consider that it is a 22 year old car.

It's a car that makes you want to drive. It's fun and very easy handled.

It's not just a car, it's more than that.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had one of these for my first car, 1049cc OHC motor with 3 door body in midnight blue. Went OK, stopped OK, handled very well for a 1980 car. Great fun for a first car, although mechanicals were fragile apart from the engine. Managed to break a half shaft whilst enjoying the last 2-3mm of front tyre tread on a car park roof one Sunday afternoon! (with a 1.05l engine!!!)

Worth a thought if you want dead cheap transport.
