Hello All,

Along with my glorious 159, presumably because I am a glutton for punishment, I also have a rather lovely fiat coupe 20v turbo.

well, it will be lovely once ive finished with it :D getting to as close to show room as I can. to which end I need to get hold of an original coupe radio.

Anybody know of any specialism coupe garages/breakers/outfits that I could try? I'm thinking a kind of fiat autolusso kind of thing....

Cheers All

Hi Larry92. My specialist for Coupe is Roger at PowerItalia. Worth a Google.
Not your location but he might be able to help. He has a contact Emanuel who has bits if he hasn't.
Worth an ask!

cool thanks very much :) - my principal issue is parts, I have good local garages run by people who used to work for fiat/alfa so got that covered :)

Have you looked on FCCUK?

That is a great forum.

I have a soft spot for Fiat Coupe's I have had two of them. (16VT and 20VT)

I have two Larry, a vis and a 20v turbo along with my monster GT..brilliant cars but utterly unusable as an every day driver on anything but modest mileage, but I of course see the attraction, the 20v turbo has it all, style comfort and speed!

I use solo italia on occasion for parts if I need a panel or non service item, but for things like wishbones and cam belts I find shop4parts have most if not all of what I need.

again FCCUK is a great forum , worth persevering with the log in as its the most likely place you will find something like an original radio.

best of luck with your fettling :thumbup:

thanks very much :) glad im not the only nut on the block ;) I have this image of myself in 30 years time with a car park full off italian beauties and spending allmy money and time on things which are never quite right but oh so perfect none the less. already quite fancy adding an alfa 2600 sprint and a fiat dino 2400 spyder to my stable

Personally I think the Fiat Coupe was a much better car than the GTV, but keep it to yourself. ;)

with the 20v turbo in it, I think you are right ;) a tower of power! 10mph to 100mph in one gear :wow:

Seconded! 150k miles and, touch wood, a reliable everyday driver to work.
Four seats, square boot holds a trunk, and it goes like........if strictly necessary.
:tut:
Still loving and looking after my first Alfa too, though.

Compared to the V6 GTV the 20V Turbo is faster, more economical, more reliable (no dodgy diff or trick suspension at the back to go wrong) More room inside, and IMO it handles better because you can get lift off oversteer.

The exterior styling are both equally as good, but I think the Fiat with the Pininfarina designed interior looks better inside.

But I do love the sound of that busso v6 in the GTV, even if the 20V turbo sounds very nice as well.
