Decide on your engine: Honda or Fiat
Serious buyers and tire kickers alike can discover almost everything on Bring a Trailer, from all-out American classics to pre-war antiques and Italian muscle. Today’;s choose, nonetheless, is none of people.
This 1974 Fiat X1/9 autocrosser is for sale out of Garnedia, Calif., for the value of $ 25,000, or ideal offer. The greatest component is that you get to decide on your drivetrain — a nearly unheard of marketing point, specially on eBay.
The seller says he can provide the car with a entirely constructed Fiat motor, prepared to run in the Solo 2 GP class, or with a 250-hp Honda motor for the XP class. He also says it could go to an all-motor drag race, “AND kick butt.” His emphasis, not ours.
The Fiat motor is a fuel-injected, has a 15:1 compression ratio, S2 cam, small valves as per the class rules, additional titanium parts and a Colotti puppy box. It requires race gas to run.
The Honda motor is a K20 head with a K24 bottom, aftermarket cams, tuned ECU, aftermarket plenum, rebuilt gearbox. Positraction is apparently part of that package.
The automobile held a quantity of information ahead of the seller purchased it, including the Fall Enduro in Oregon and at the Bible Creek Hill Climb, also in Oregon.
For the seller’;s portion, he says he place in nearly $ 80,000 and 1,000 hrs of time in. He ran it the 2 in Los Angeles and San Francisco, towing it back and forth. The vehicle won in the G-ready class with the Fiat motor and as an X-prepared auto with the Honda motor. Perhaps if you sweeten the deal enough, the vendor will throw in each.
The seller names his 3 most important upgrades as the Colotti box, the Megasquirt injections and Penske shocks.
Extras contain a trailer, which is a large 1, different wheels for each and every setup, extra Fiat transmission, further Colotti components and a handful of other bits and pieces.
