Fiat 126

There is now a swis owned company rebuilding 126 cars in Poland, to full rally spec. Price delivered in the UK only £8000, free rally support is thrown in.

I go to test one tommorow

No I am not buying one for that price.

I owned 3 of these great cars. I am in the Fiat 126 club in the UK.

My plan for September is fly to Poland and drive a great little 126 back.
More choice in Poland than in the UK.

Re: Fiat 126

I drove a Fiat 126, with a weird ratchet ignition system, for a few weeks, many years back. In my view: the biggest pile of shit ever invented. But each to their own!

I prefer my Land Rover. Safer. More reliable. Fun.

If you plan on driving back through Lubuskie in your death trap, drop in for tea .

Re: Fiat 126

They are real head turners in the UK real pulling wagons



Here is the company.

I had 3 in Poland and one in the Uk but sold it a few months ago, now want another one, but pre 1985 as better cars, and will have a roll cage fitted and plan on tuning, no not the spoilers and big speakers, properly.

Re: Fiat 126

As a law abiding UK citizen.

OK! Polish plates will be much cheaper for a year at least.

If the car is over 10 years old a bit of a hassle, but plenty of old rusty 126 scrappers in the UK not that I would change the Vin that is illegal
Tut Tut naughty naughty.
For every day we have our Frontera, so the 126 will just be my pulling wagon

Fiat 126

Re: Fiat 126

I saw that, nasty colour, the guy is expcting £300+ for it
He has seen UK prices the problem it is LHD and VGC in the UK means something very different than in Poland.
I wrote to him in Polish he replied in bad English.

In Poland £300 buys me a 126 with a group A engine, fully race ready.

Re: Fiat 126

"I wrote to him in Polish he replied in bad English."

That is so funny!

Re: Fiat 126

Not often that one can dust off quarter century old automotive humor.

What is the quietest car to drive? A Maluch, your knees block your ears.

Did you hear that FSM is exporting Maluch engines to the U.S.? Cadillac needed a lighter wiper motor.

The only church approved birth control device. The Maluch!

Re: Fiat 126



dajwid, why do like this p.o.s?

Re: Fiat 126

The upside is that when tuned the horsepower to weight ratio is impressive. The downside is that in a front end collision the function of the occupants is to protect the engine.

Rolls Royce dealers are now selling Maluchs … as replacement ashtrays.

Re: Fiat 126

I may have found a good one in the UK!!

79 de ville, with the full sun roof.

1st job will be strip it out, roll cage, lower suspension, Disc brakes all round, 13" alloys, Stiffer springs. Then Engine work, but not too mad as still needs to be drivable on the road unlike the
Group2 cars.
Then respray, British racing green, and a 'teraz Polska' sticker in the back.

Re: Fiat 126

I have just saved my father in law's Fiat from the scrapyard. Bright orange and a real head turner
