Old Fiats don't break they just rust away! This one has been locked up in the garage since 01. I got it with really no rust on it (from Atlanta) and used another one for a summer driver.

I should have said the red one in the picture above was the first one i had and it was bought by me in 1970 after the original owner overheated the engine with in the first six months he owned it, it had a really great "lack" of warranty

The heavy tube bumpers have been replaced with the early model light blade bumpers and the license plate goes back lower between the bumpers but staying with the newer style tail lights.

If I remember right, this one is already a uni body, correct? Since it is not possible to do a frame off restoration, how did you do the belly of it?

I count myself extremely fortunate with this one as the body had less than a few square inches of rust issues, but to answer the question when needed

Wow, that is quite an interested set-up! A free turning Fiat body!
