There's usually a couple on Autotrader.
Top price seems to be in the £2.5-3k mark, and that's for an absolute minter.
I'd totally love to have one, just got no where to park it. :(

I owned one in the early '80's when I was a teenager.I am not sure of the pricing or existance today.What I do remember well was the problems I had with the cooling system,radiator in the nose then mildsteel piping running to the engine at the mid-rear.Great cars they were,I took the roof panel off once,and forgot where I left it(drunk teenagers).I drove it for another two years minus roof:lol:

There was one for sale by the side of the road in Dungiven at the end of the Glenshane Pass a couple of weeks ago. Didn't catch the price unfortunately.

The X/19 was responsible for my love of Italian cars.

C1978 as a passenger in one driven by a Wing/Cdr from RAF Brawdy.

We sold plenty of them at a Fiat dealer I was at back in the early 80`s although most of them were already two years old before they sold!
Cracking little cars especially with the roof off!

I remember seeing the FIAT X19 in Italy as a young lad and just being spell bound by its shape and sound.

One of the truly stunning "affordable" Italian sports cars of the past three decades.

Aye! But all the half-decent X19's I see these days are the gay "big-bumper" versions made for the US market.

The original 1300cc with the small bumper/over-riders was an absolutely boootiful little car. They came in metallic lime-green and an orange (maybe blue too). If I found a decent one, I'd have to have one. :thumbs:

I'm sure that's what my neighbour has got in his garage! He did have 2 at one point but now has just the one.

I loved my 79 X1/9, it was gold coloured and such a fun drive. I paid $7,900. Canadian for it in 1979 new, and sold it 1 year later to the dealer for the same price :)
Not many around anymore.

X1/9 is a great little sports car but some of the later ones with two tone paint jobs and spotty interiors were nothing short of hideous.

Tend to agree with Ralf S. here - the original 1300 versions looked the best, especially with those stripey seats.
