Great going Gogi.Always loved the Fiat & remember the days when use to go around in a modded fiat with headers & exhaust & man she use to turn heads.But with the original looks ( no exterior mods) except for an after market mettalic grey paintjob.Very classy.

Gogi, you have a skilled mech who is doing a fabulous job of conversion and transplant. Great going. Hope to see more of it.

Me too liked this one a lot. Go for this. It looks unique to me. Try not to have a shiny and glossy paint job. A laid back subtle finish looks best IMO.

Nice to read bout your fiat man! 'cant wait to see the updates!
Btw, where did you find this car?? Does it still exist?? Looks restorable although looks like it'd need a complete body panel transplant like your car!

And I'd suggest refitting the quarter-glasses in the front windows on your car......doesnt suit these cars to remain without those....

i'm a bit confused, are you transplanting the original panels onto the donor car, or are you using the donor car's panels on the original?


also, the tyres with whitewalls look awesome on such a car.

Here the Original car will be donating the face and side panels and drivetrain, the donor car will be Donating its body. So every car is donating something to resurrect a dying beauty. What will be the chassis number of the resultant?

But the blue and white looks very nice to me, get the sunroof made similarly though.

Very nice project V-16! Got me hooked Will be waiting eagerly for the updates.
I agree with some of the others - the blue/white combo looks great. just make sure the greyish-blue shade isn't dull...u want your baby to shine (literally!).
So what's planned under the hood? And how about suspension, brakes, tyres etc?
