Built by Abarth & Co in 1967, this 1000 Berlina Corsa conforms to the Group 2 regulations then in use.

The car  is thought to have been a ‘cliente’ car when new, being raced outside Italy. An amount of  Italian hill-climb history has been established  during the 1970’s.

After being acquired by Tony Berni (the renowned Italian Abarth specialist), the car was restored by Leo Aumuller in Germany. The vehicle retains all its original fittings and fixtures including a very rare AH cylinder block.

In recent years, this 1000 has benefited from service work by Middle Barton Garage. In consequence, the car is immediately drivable, both as a road car and a competition car.
