The upcoming season of Wheeler Dealers will feature an X1/9 as one of their project cars. I had the opportunity to ask Mike Brewer from the show if they were planning on converting the X1/9 to electric.
Thankfully he said no. One of the easiest ways to watch Wheeler Dealers is via the motor trend streaming service link below. You can sign up for a seven-day trial to watch the show once available.
There have been a few hints as to what model X1/9 they will be flipping. The picture shows Mike in a Green series 1 so 1974- 1978. On past shows, they have modified cars back to European looks. So I believe there is a good chance they will be doing a European bumper conversion to give it more appeal.
The Grand Tour S03E07 "Well Aged Scotch" feature on early 2019. The trio head to Inverness, Scotland, with a selection of inexpensive rare Italian Classics - Clarkson infatuated by his Alfa Romeo GTV6, May over the moon with his Lancia Gamma 2500 Coupe and Hammond in awe of his Fiat X1/9.
Almost all X1/9's in Australia have been logged and recorded. So there is plenty of information and history on cars for sale. If you see an X1/9 for sale on Gumtree or Carsales and it’s not listed here as well, there is probably a good reason why.
To display on this website we ask all sellers to provide a picture of the VIN/Chassis & compliance plate. We then check it against our extensive database of stolen and damaged cars.
