Lovely cars, watched a few Abarths go through the Goodwood Revival auction a month or so back.

If its an original there's about zero VW beetle gone into it.....

According to this that is an original.

quote:

This vehicle is an Abarth Barchetta Tubolare. It has a hand-made aluminum tubular frame and was a very successful race car. In 1965 alone, Abarth and their performance cars won almost 900 races.



Same guy driving it, looks like that photo was from the same event.

Cheers

Yes - original not VW based but below is what I am talking about.

About half way down the thread - a poster has the moulds from an original car that can be made to fit a VW chassis adapted as per an American Crusader that was based on a Formula Vee concept and a modified Abarth body. It seems like he is willing to sell bodies.

You can do it quickly. You can do it cheap. You can do it right. Pick any two.
