Never had an A112 - never found one this side of the Channel that was close to being a viable project. I wouldn't think they'd handle as well as an Innocenti though - the Inno is, after all, entirely rubber-sprung Mini underneath, and there's no car on the road that is as much fun to hurl round corners as a rubber-sprung Mini. Most of them had A series mechanicals as well, although the last of them went over to 3-pot Daihatsu lumps. I think the A112 is quite similar to the Y10 underneath (the Y10 was originally sold as an Autobianchi) so should be quite good fun to drive, but it still won't be no Mini.

Yup, I've got that on my watch list. Tempted, but the fact that it's an auto is putting me off a bit - being an E plater it's likely to have the paininthearse 4-speed box, isn't it?

From trawling the 'net I think '88 was the switch to 4-speed - coincided with the series 2 re-style perhaps? Probably best check to be sure though.That lovely red V6 would be my choice at the moment - shame I'm off on hols, but the Wuv is onto that one anyway. :wink:Get both - the Monaco interior would look good in the red V6!

HEY WUVZ! Did you strike up any dialogue with the Gamma fellow?

Aye. Emailed him earlier today to say taht if he can hold off the pikeys-with-the-hiab-truck for a couple more weeks I'd do what I could to find the Gamma a good home. It rather depends on me selling the Marea though as what little spare change I have at the moment is already allocated to the 121/Revue and the Yamaha electronic piano that I've just managed to win myself, plus the 25 and the Y10 that I am currently winning. I've stuck the Transit and the Rayton on the Bay too, so hopefully that'll clear a space to put the Gamma.

I'd go halfers with you on buying it if that'll help, dunno how those deals really work out but i'd certainly pay £100 to prevent it getting baled, I just simply do not have the space for it myself at the mo.

Might end up taking you up on that - I'll wait and see if I hear back from matey first. If the worst came to the worst I probably would drag it home behind the Carlton - the A140 is such a slow road anyway that only being able to do 40mph isn't going to be a major drawback. Only thing is I've got to shift the Rayton out the way first. Be interesting to see how long I could get away with parking it on the street on its Italian plates before someone moaned...

I'm going to give the seller a buzz this evening if he hasn't responded to my message before then. There's no way I'm going to stand by and watch that car get scrapped if there's anything I can do about it.

They must have sold a lot of the autobox ones, seems nearly every one for sale is!

I don't think there was a lot of choice at the time if you were after a small automatic hatchback, so Honda had the market pretty much to themselves. (n.b. that's what the kid next door's Dad told me when they were available new and he was thinking about getting one. I was a child and he knew f.a. about cars. Having said that, I can't think of many other small autos from the late 70s...)

SWMBO is not amused by this car (no pleasing some folk), so up for grabs.

BUMP!

We're almost into the final furlong, I'm so bastid depressed I could cry.
100 watchers and no fugga is bidding. Only interest I'm getting is from folk who want to pay about £20 above it's weigh-in value.

I reckon it will see you right Pog. Deffo worth £500 easy. Seems much better value than the D-plate 760 Turbot I have my eye on at the moment for £250 with 2.5 months T&T; might have a last-min punt but don't want to end up with 2! Mind you Torsten has just (potentially) punted a free Rover 820 my way - will keep you all posted.

Knackers to that. It's a 1.8, and therefore crammed full of parts to convert your Viva / Cavalier / Chevette / Escort / Milk Float into an XE-engined tool. Gearbox & sump pick-up will make hundreds all day long. Stripping and weighing in the rest will net some quids too. I got £275 for a rotten one belonging to my half-witted friend last year. And that was a 'snip'
