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:

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...

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?

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?

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.
