Until recently, this was a British garden: Abarth 1000TC carriage by 1961
Touring through the British landscape we traced a little carriage from a little later in a garden Fiat Abarth 1000TC to have been. Year of construction 1961. The coach came as a complete car - with a French license plate - from France.

Was completely restored by the current owner and provided with the required safety attributes, such as an original OMP roll cage. Carefully restored and prepared, the industrious driver went to war in 2005. It took some getting used to. In the second race on the circuit of Mallory Park it went very wrong. The unfortunate driver became a passenger in his own car, resulting in an extremely spectacular lead. End Abarth. Again the whole thing was carefully dismantled and transferred to a fresh Fiat coach. Five years later, he decided that the damaged bodywork was not going to take root in his garden and therefore 'gone with it'. Although all papers are correct, the carriage really was provided with all Abarth modifications, there is even an original chassis plate of the grandmaster present, the license plate indicates that it is a Abarth 1000TC - without mentioning Fiat -, the FIA papers Abarth To mention it, there is doubt that it might be none at all Abarth is ...? Experts, on the other hand, are convinced that this is about this the real McCoy… Well, and with a price of £ 500,00 then the choice is easily made. All the more since the damage - thanks to the roll cage - is not that bad. The repair is in any case less work than making all official Abarth modifications ...
