Classic Park has on offer a recently completely restored Fiat 1500 cabriolet type 118K, built in 1966.
This Fiat was delivered new in the Netherlands, the original registration was then 07-81-BU. At one point a garage owner in Amsterdam bought the car that he wanted to keep for private property. On that moment the cabriolet had only driven 32,000 km. But a repair was necessary and that's why he put the car in storage, the car remained there for 32 years ......... After 32 years the garage was sold and at that moment the car came in new hands. But the car went from one storage to another storage! First in 2015 the car got real attention. The car was totally stripped, the body of the car proved to be very solid. Only the left front doorsill needed some attention.
The bodywork was completely blasted and painted. Then the famous Fiat type 118 expert Theo van den Berg got involved in the restoration process. Van den Berg knows everything about the Fiat Coupé and Cabriolet of the 1200/1500 generation. The car is by Van den Berg restored, regardless of costs. The engine was overhauled and new parts were fitted where necessary. During the restoration the decision was made to make a new color scheme on the car, from red to elegant gray. The restoration is carefully documented with pictures. In July 2017 the car got a new Dutch license plate.
This beautifully restored Fiat 1500 type 118K is equipped with the original four in-line engine type 115C005 with a bore of 77 mm, the engine delivers 83 hp. The engine is connected to the original five-speed manual transmission. A magnificent matching numbers car, ready for beautiful tours!
