Can anyone tell me if Eurosport still sells a body kit for the x1/9?

yes, Eurosport still sells the kit. You can also get the Dallara kit occasionally from vendors in the US.

Never heard of/seen those cars before. Can you find them in Canada or are they strictly foreign made? They look pretty cool.

Those are all body kits for the Fiat X1/9, which you can find all over Canada and the US. The X1/9 was sold from '74-81 or so as a Fiat, then Bertone (who designed the car) continued selling them under their own name until '85 (interestingly enough, that was about when the MR2 arrived on the scene as a japanese copy of the X1/9).

This was my nearly stock '81 X1/9:

I havent seen anything really like those in Ontario (Peterborough, probly dont know it lol). I kinda like them though. Would they be alot to buy if found in good shape?

posted by  car_crazy89

No. they are dirt cheap to buy, and actually dirt cheap to get parts for. Most need electrical repair or rust repair, however. But I've seen them for under $500 in running condition...

I wonder where i could come across one of those lol. Actually i want an old Muscle car (ie. Mopar probably) but i change my mind daily. Can you get those body kits in Canada also?

posted by  car_crazy89

Well the most I've paid for any of mine was $26 so their pretty cheap here in Nevada and I have 4 right now. I'm looking for the kit cause my first x1/9 (a 1975) needs a wee bit more body work then I think I"m capable of and the body kit would go over just about all of it. The x1/9 uses alot of Yugo ignition parts and the motor is just about the same too, so parts are cheaper than dirt.

I anyone makes one.

My father had a red 1987 Fiat X1/9. It was a very good car. His was obviously fuel injected. Is yours?

posted by  FordFromHell351

Oh, you have more than one! Cool, the Pontiac Fiero copied off their bodies. Have fun with them!!!

posted by  FordFromHell351

Pretty cool, i wouldnt mind having one if found cheap enough. But i'd want the bodykit cause it looks pretty cool. Those are some nice cars you got. Is there any order your going to fix them in or just randomly?

posted by  car_crazy89

Well none of mine are injected,although I wish at least one was. The first one to be on the road(atleast legally) is the blue one thats jacked up next to the gold one. The blue one is in the process of getting a 5 speed swapped in. Heres some pics of my 4th x1/9.

Thats cool. What really are you gonna do with 4 or so of the same car lol? Nice collection though. :thumbs:

With Fiats you need at least two to keep one together. And if you want to build them more than one way, you need even more.. ;)

Haha good to know, dont know much about Fait. My dad's always been into the older domestic (mostly chevy) vehicles.

Lol, Chris has got that right. Still looking for a parts car for my 124 Spider.

I am ordering a Eurosport body kit. The one hangup is the shipping cost. If there is anyone interested in purchasing a Eurosport body kit where a container could be shipped it would reduce the shipping cost for all.

I didn't know Eurosport was still making / selling body kits for the X1/9. I might be interested in their bolt-on kit, depending on cost of kit and shipping charges.

I sent Eurosport an email and got a reply. They still sell the bolt-on kit! They quoted £399 for the kit and £50 for crating. I'd have to arrange shipping. The only way I could see sharing the cost of shipping working, would be if we lived close enough where we could ship to a single, mutually-convenient location.

Larry, your profile doesn't show your location. Where are you located?
