1978 Fiat X1/9 1.3 from Australia and New Zealand


The best fun machine ever designed


Carburettor problems with intermittent flat spot - seems OK now.

Heating problems - replaced thermostat.

General Comments:

I have wanted an X19 from when I first saw one in 1978. (I had a 124 then) This is without doubt the best handling car I have ever driven. It could certainly use an extra gear or more power. For the price I paid for this car there is nothing that comes close to its cornering ability.

I'm thinking about putting a Lancia Beta motor and gearbox in it. Any comments?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
