fiat x1/9 body kit

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:



This is a stock '74 model:
