Soft top 126 for sale

Soft top 126 for sale.

It's not mine, I saw it advertised and thought someone may be interested in a winter project.

It'd be a shame to let it go to scrap!

its based in southend ,essex , a dealer had a load professionally converted that way years back (when they were new obviously) so i should think its a proper bonified example also it is the last in the series of bis 704cc produced for the uk. but its got no price so you have to offer what you think its worth!

so its uk- only? but i was right, this is a conversion, and not factory made... but nevertheless interesting...

the only small series produced convertible version was the POP 2000?

i was told that there was only 8 genuine fiat ones made, they were very poorly constructed. i dont know how true this is

all thoe there were some coach built and registered as browns convertible on the v5 logbook these were far better built im sure i read somewhere 200 of these were made, but dont quote me on the numbers.

Ah ha! I think this answers my question! I've just joined this forum as trying to find out about the history of the car my great Aunt owns... See the introductions thread. Do we know if it was definately a Fiat dealership that did the conversions? And if so, how many of each 'dodgy' name? My Aunt lived in Leigh on Sea, so would make sense if it came from Southend.
