The unique, cheeky look and racing success make the Abarth sedans so desirable. Original factory cars are extremely rare. Replicas of the rioters, however, are more common.
The basis for the Abarth Berlinetta models is the Fiat 600, built from 1955 to 1969. First Abarth versions were already available from 1956 (Berlina 750) with an unchanged look such as chrome trim and bumpers, also in the later versions 850 TC and 1000 TC.
Many of the built on the basis of the improved Fiat 600 D for racing (homologation) from the 1960s were not from the Abarth factory, but were externally equipped with the tuning kit and later modernized. Original, unchanged factory deliveries are therefore very rare.
The typical body components of the Abarth Berlinetta such as instrument panel with large tachometer, three-spoke sports steering wheel and front radiator (from 1965) added later often many new technology parts. Disc brakes and a classically tuned engine existed from the beginning; a front axle with special stub axles and coil springs and a cross-flow cylinder head (radial) were added.
The not fully exhausted Abarth 1000 TC variants with a maximum of 88 hp are considered unproblematic. However, the front axle, clutch and transmission are subject to increased wear.
All parts of the Fiat Abarth 1000 TC, which come from the normal base Fiat 600 D, are usually readily available and not expensive. The situation is different with the Abarth tuning parts such as drilled engine block, connecting rod, camshaft and more, which are now very rare.
The seen Fiat Abarth 1000 TC was piloted at the Hockenheimring for the price of the city of Stuttgart in April 2019 by Joachim Beck.
