Fiat Abarth 1000 TC
First registration 01.1962
Swiss road registration with veteran entry
This beautiful Fiat Abarth 1000 TC belonged to a Swiss Abarth specialist and was fully restored by him years ago. The car was regularly used to participate in famous events such as the Rally de Portugal Histórico. Many documents like invoices and a photo documentation of the restoration are available. The Fiat Abarth 1000 TC is in absolute top collector condition and is veteran-approved.
With the Fiat Abarth 850 and 1000 TC Carlo Abarth created a weapon in the touring car sport which can hardly be beaten, innumerable championship titles and hundreds of victories testify to it.
The name Abarth alone makes car lovers’ hearts beat faster. Carlo Abarth was considered a master at turning an ordinary production car into a raging “bomb.” Although he is probably best known for his Fiat conversions, he was also involved with Ferrari, Lancia and Porsche.
The Fiat Abarth was based on a Fiat 600, which was considered the “people’s car” in Italy. It was powered by a 600 cc water-cooled four-cylinder engine that produced 28 horsepower.
However, Abarth gradually modified the car and released it in different versions: the 750 TC, the 850 TC and the 1000 TC.
The Abarth’s characteristic open tailgate was intended to aid engine cooling, but also allowed for higher top speeds. Another feature was the car’s tendency to lift the inside front wheel when cornering.
After nearly a decade of modifying Fiat’s 500/600 series, Abarth became one of Fiat’s most sought-after and ambitious tuners. The 1000 Berlina Corsa, produced in partial consultation with Fiat, represented the final and most powerful evolution of these models. As such, the 1000 benefited from all its predecessors. So much so that the 1000 raced successfully until 1970.
