Thats what I am talking about bro. Wait your hijacking me from the path of O REE GEE NALITY! PRESIDENT HELP! No on a serious note do you get abarth kits for a 1100? Do you have specs on the cars you just posted. The race for a racing dukkar is on.

No. Abarth never made a kit for a 1100. Atleast from what my knowledge goes....I may be wrong though.

Dukkars are too few and far between for you to pimp up Amol, unless its something like this

Look for a clean Padmini instead no? They can be as much fun, plus plenty of creative liscence.

Abarth and others definitely made many many add on kits for the 1100. Here is a Nardi leaflet for manifolds.

But the real McCoy is the 1100 TV, Tourismo Veloce, the preferred choice of coachbuilders. Factory offered, with much sportier kit. Here is one at the Mille Miglia! Who said dukkars don't have provenance?

well i was thinking more on the lines of converting "DALDA" Then she will truely meet the aspirations of the old lady and make her regret her decision to go for a nano...just kidding

Padminis dont have the shape i am looking for, has to be atleast a 1100R in that case. Does Abarth still sell kits for classic 1100s

yes i will post its pics when i finally go there next month.

its a 56 model. but i think it is a bit different from the model pictured here. the 1100 is written in a straight line at the rear.

actually the car has been stuffed with non original stuff, or so it seems. the lights (all of them) are different from what i can see in these pics. but still i can live with those except the rear ones which are all red even the indicators.
the grill is different and consists of squares but i guess that was stock since why would anyone need to replace the grill?

the paint is a mess though, its plain white and gives a very unoriginal look to the beauty underneath. i can live without the hubcaps though.

In 56 there was two types: the type which appeared from 53 to 56 and the type from 56 to late 57 (which i own)
rear light red (one piece) means that it is a early 56 does it have round meters on the dash board, the grill should just be an aluminum three horizontal band type. (orginal i mean)

yes it came with round meters, which were later replaced with the one from a padmini, except the charging meter.
so the grill is not original as well :( so at least one thing's sure that the rear lights are original

That means you need to start hunting for parts my friend, i am not sure anyone has yet restored a early 56 car on the forum, you will be the first. your car should look like this.

Now you know ehy i think this is the ideal shape for a racing dukkar, and the front aluminum grill just adds to the speedy look So whats stopping the Dhabar's from picking one up?

That car would look seriously bad as it is just with the front bumper remooved.

Not to mention what it could do with a twin carb / electronic ignition and header combo for starters.
