This wonderful 1962 Fiat 600 D Derivata Abarth 850 TC first owner was a Mr Dolofero of Sicily, Italy. This very special ‘Derivata’ Abarth 850 TC was initially produced in the Fiat factory and directly after production modified by Abarth to a 850 TC in their Turin factory in September 1962. The original 60’s records are present as well as descriptions by the Automobile Club d’Italia and a certificate D’Registro Fiat Italiano. The modifications included lowered suspension, front disc brakes, ventilated steel rims, the enlarged 847 cc Abarth engine fitted with upgraded manifolds, light alloy oil crankcase, carburettor, air filter, external oil filter and light alloy alternator pulley. The special cylinder head driven mechanical rev counter is present and working. The cooling has an extra radiator, positioned under the cars’ nose and coupled to the original system. Inside it has an Abarth steering wheel and the dashboard is set to Abarth specification with Jaeger speedometer incorporating a trip counter, a rev counter, oil pressure monitor, temperature and fuel gauges. An additional electronic pump was installed to ensure constant fuel delivery. Short after delivery, this car took part in races in Southern Italy. There is a 1965 photo taken at the Pergusa circuit. At some stage in the 70’s and 80’s this car was put into storage. It came to light again in 2006, when two Sicilian brothers discovered the car. Subsequently the car has been fully restored from bare-metal. The well-known specialists Berni Motors of Maleo in the north of Italy completely revised the engine. There is an extensive photographic record of this process. The car is in excellent condition in all aspects. The red interior trim is superbly preserved. The bodywork has great and perfectly fitted body panels. The paintwork and decorative elements are spot on! This real Abarth is not only rare; it has the correct provenance and is in perfect condition!
