Description Fiat Strada / Ritmo Cabrio by Bertone 1985 very rare suit Alfa Lancia buyer

Black Fiat Strada (Ritmo) Cabrio for sale. 1985 model. The Cabrio version of the Strada (also known as the Ritmo outside the UK and USA) was designed by Bertone (car features a Bertone badge on the boot lid).

Extremely rare anywhere, but particularly in Australia, where this car is believed to be one of only two (the other is not registrable). The factory black colour makes it all the rarer.

Handles unbelievably well: feels a lot like an X1/9 in its handling. Driven regularly. The 1.6 litre engine is very capable in this small body! 5 speed manual.

Good condition cloth interior, very practical for hot days. Retro-fitted Jensen CD player with USB port (detachable face, useful when the roof is down and the car open).

The car has had a full steam clean of the interior (both seats and carpets). It has also had extensive bodywork undertaken in the time I have owned it, including rust removal and paintwork.

Price reflects the fact that the hood needs replacing: it is water-tight, but tired. The tonneau cover (also rare) fits well and finishes the car nicely when the roof is down, despite missing one hook on the driver's side. 

If the car goes for the Buy It Now price, I will have the wheels and the front bumper painted. The wheels are not bad, and have 4 near new Michelin Energy tyres, but painting would just brighten them up a bit. The front bumper has a couple of marks that could be touched up. These things are cosmetic and picky: the car could be confidently displayed at a car show exactly how it is now! It has been vastly improved since I purchased it.

This is a great car: lots of fun to drive, and attracts plenty of attention (obviously most people have never seen one!). Four months rego remaining. This car has been insured for $15,000.

A 10% deposit will be required within three days of purchase. Pick up within fourteen days. Please contact me on 0400 671 322 if you have any questions.

Selling to fund my wife's obsession with small Fiats...
