Found this car this past weekend. Got it home don't know much about the history. Like how many made. Are parts available for this year. I believe this car is rare. But will be fun when finished.

Could you elaborate on what model your car is? And where you're located? Sounds interesting!

So you have a model 1200 Cabriolet/Convertible/Spider, type 118G. This model was introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in 1959, to replace the 1200TV Convertible. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 15,000 1200 Convertibles were made between 1959 and 1963. I don't know how many of these were "Vetture Speciali" versions, I haven't seen anything that specifies the difference between a "normal" car and a "vetture speciali".

The 1200 Spider was tested in Road & Track, April 1961, and in Sports Cars Illustrated, February 1960.

Need to move this into another section, not in "For Sale", unless you're selling it...

Thanks for the information, As for being for sale may be a possibility. This is a project car my dad will be doing, but recently had a fall and fractured his t-12 vert in his back. Is on his way to mending. Just thought the car deserved a restoration. He just finished a 1960 buick lesabre and the fiat is 1/3 the size. LOL

Ok... I have a small update. I looked in the packaging for the new pump and saw the two bolt thingies that go in the pump to connect the pump to the heater pipe. And that bolt at the 3:00 position MIGHT actually be there. It looks like there is a long hexagonal headed bolt coming out of the position, but It is nice and tight. I can prolly snap it loose but I want to see if anyone knows for sure if thats actually the bolt to hold the pump on. Feels like too much pressure could snap it off and I'd HATE to do that. LOL. I can get a wrench on it at the far end.
