Nice picture - tough job but someone's got to do it  Smiley  

Don't worry about the Mk1 - legend has it that a prototype MK1 was sent to the Ford plant in Boreham, Essex and two engineers joked "that would really move with a (Ford / Lotus) Twin cam in it"  They looked at each other and the rest is history.......

Who would FIAT have had to race againt if it wasn't for the Essex boys with their MK 1 & 2 Escorts?

A few pics for the essex boys out there  Wink 36oookms from new, drives better than i rembered from the first time round. A real time warp even the back axle is still shiny black!!

Will try to, seems to have a fueling problem at the mo. Guess its from standing so long and blocked the carb, so not mobile. Its going off to have its cam belt and service so will be sorted then. In the mean time i get some where it sits ,on Monday when with it next(we are a bit tight for room so packed it quite closely). G

And as I know you lot like pics, here are some of the 67 500. For the more observant amongst you. Yes it is original Italian Right Hand Drive ! Rare as rocking horse poo! Now get your heads round this. For what this is worth you could by a mint 131 racing/sport and have enough left over to take your wife/fiance/mistress/girlfriend or in these politically correct days boyfriend on a decent holiday!!

Wonderful! I love this car. Fiat 130 coupe is a wonderful example of italian design. Were all those from Italy? If so is a bit a pity that all original documents and plates were lost, but if there was no other way....

The plates would of gone when they were de-registered and taken off the road years ago, but we have most of the original owners log books  Grin

Thanks for the pictures and write ups Graham.

The 130 interior is a peach and has escaped the damage of the Italian sun. So many of these burnt orange interiors fade badly. Nice find.  Smiley

Square lights and the 4 (extra) dials  - 1300E / GT ?  The 4 door must have been a rare find in that configuration...

Sorry if it sounds like I'm mean to the Essex boys...I've lived all over but...originally...I am an Essex boy Wink

1100Xl built in Germany in 72 for the Italian market, according to Ford UK. Its all the little clocks that i like myself not much bigger than an old penny, maybe thats what they used to draw the circles back then before computers took over . Simple life  Grin

Finally got a chance today to start on the 131. To hot to pull it right outside to take the pics as i was on my own and pushing a bloody great 4 wheel trailer thats in the way about on your own is no fun. Anyway, have attached some pics, mainly of the interior as thats what people have asked about most. In some the light makes it look more grey but it is the blue you can see best on the door trims? And yes there is NO rust round the sun roof apperture or the roof panel itself  Shocked
This is exactly as it was delivered, not even had a wipe over yet, but she runs as sweet as the day she was built and everything works, even the time clock. Un-frortunately the original stereo has been removed at some time and the front door mounted speakers, so if anyone has a pair of speaker grills or an origanal stereo let me know. Cheers. G
