1967 Fiat 1000 Abarth TC

Abarth specialised in modifying various cars, but is perhaps best known for its work on Fiats. One of the models they converted in the 1960s was the Fiat 600D. It was highly modified, lightened, and given bigger wheels and tyres. Plus a close-ratio gearbox, racing seats and harnesses, as well as an Abarth-spec 1000cc engine.

This Abarth 1000 was bought by Jay Kay of Jamiroquai in December 2003 and has remained in his collection until now. Supplied by noted Abarth specialists - Middle Barton Garage - the car was then registered AMC 806H. Unfortunately, the logbook for the car was lost and never found which necessitated the car having to be re-registered as ABW 194E for use on the road, the original registration number having been reallocated by the DVLA to another car.

Estimate: £10,000-£12,000
