The X1/9 Stradale sat for few more year's in Australia untouched in storage until late last year. It has now gone through an extensive restoration which will see the Stradale back to its original colour and engine and will stay located in Australia. This X1/9 has a unique Abarth chassis number, which for the moment will remain private due to the owner's request. It is almost fully restored and is looking magnificent. Viewing this rare X1/9 has been close to impossible till now.
I’m excited to announce that the owner of the Abarth X1/9 Stradale has asked me to exclusively film and photograph the Stradale for a media package to feature in publications such as Autoitalia magazine as well as others around the world.
Be the first to see exclusive pictures of the Abarth X1/9 Stradale on the X1/9 Australia Facebook group.
I was lucky enough to see the original paperwork from Abarth to Alfred. It has details of the car and the sales receipt to him. He flew over and picked up the Stradale in person and had it shipped over to America.
The X1/9 Stradale stayed with Alfred for many years as he developed it and played with it changing engines, and painting it red. As the years went by Alfred’s collection of cars, stock and memorabilia grew.
His complete collection of cars and parts, all the Abarth factory files and the entire Abarth photo collection was sold to a gentleman in Australia in late 2006.
