Sellers original description:
1976 Fiat 126P Ginster Yellow (factory Fiat color) with black interior, 47,619 original kilometers (29,762 miles), 4 speed manual. Brought back to "new" condition at 36,493 kilometers in 2007 using original Fiat parts/panels and everything that could have been replaced was. Car was built as an art project headed personally by Wlodek Pawluczuk (5 time Polish rally champion). It is period correct with all chrome original pieces with added tasteful details available on the 126 line - roof antenna, rear fog and reverse light, pop out rear windows, factory R wide wheels, left and right mirrors, mud flaps, factory seat belts, H4 headlights with city/parking lights, tinted windshield, original radio. Original 600cc 24hp engine with synchronized 4 speed gearbox. If one wanted a new Fiat 126p had unlimited resources and the knowledgeable experts to make it happen this would be the result. Upgraded with lower stiffer springs/shocks, sport clutch, momo corse steering wheel (original will be included along with a collection of miscellaneous spare parts). It performs as new - can be driven daily anywhere. Was just serviced - engine oil, gear box oil, valve adjustment, suspension greased and all else - has absolutely no needs.
I am the third owner of the car since new and second in the US. Spare tire, jack, original tool kit and owners manual in excellent condition. It recently won the chairman's choice award at the 40th Annual Polish Heritage Festival. The condition and history surrounding this 126 make it one of a kind and the only one in the US. An opportunity to own a one of one item and the best part something that no one else has regardless of how extensive their collection may be.
