Fiat Tipo 16v Group N race rally -Guy Croft twincam 2.0
1993 Fiat Tipo 16v sedicivalvole 2.0 race car (plus Tipo road car with new mot).
Built by UK Fiat main dealer to win its class in the UK Production saloon car series in 1993.
Built from a new shell, only covered 950 miles since built then put into long term storeage.
Rust free as has been stored in a dry workshop since 1995.
Race prepared to Group N / production saloon spec then mildy tuned to race in a non group N saloon series.
Guy Croft originally prepared engine - was producing 175 bhp in its final tune. Guy (RIP) was the master of these Lamperdi engines and he recalled some of the work done to this car when I spoke to him last year aparently it had 175 bhp using standard valves rods and pistons. It then had a lot of other work done (not by him) outside of group N spec to develop it for other race series. A lot of money was spent on this engine, then sadly the car got parked up in the back of the (dry) workshop and left for a long period, occasionally started up.
Rot free shell.
Full roll cage bolt in.
Race suspension, race seat etc lots of spare springs wheels etc.
Still as it was when it finished its last race in the mid 1990's.
The engine is the key part of this car but also nice to find a totally rot free origninal Tipo 16v shell like this.
Needs recommissioning due to long term storage - engine turns over freeley but needs new belts before use. We have had a borescope down the bores all looks good in there.
Car was damaged at the end of last year whilst in our storeage, my bodyshop has quoted me £450 to repair plus paint on top.
This is a project car, but for anyone who knows what they are doing a fairly easy project.
Car comes with a complete road legal 1400cc Tipo 5 door with a new MOT which is in amazing condition with FSH done only 84,000 miles if you need to build one car out of the pair.
