First inspection after arrival at the Abarth Works Museum by Guy Moerenhout and his team. They confirmed again that it was a corsa version which lead to the impressing history of the car. After having found out that the Abarth was raced in the US, we managed to find original pictures which helped us to bring the Double Bubble back to its original specifications. The restoration took more than 3 Years but only the major works will be presented on the following pictures.

The car had to be completely sanded as the filler used during the first restauration in the 90ties was applied not dry enough creating "bubbles" (see also previous chapter).

Unfortunately, an older restoration in the 90ties was not executed  correctly (especially the front), which we found out once having received period correct pictures.

The Abarth-Zagato ledger indicates that Carlo Abarth had ordered the car in the very particular color "Grigio Chiaro" (Fiat color code 672, also called "Latte").

Obviously, also the instrument panel and the complete wiring had to be redone...

Zagato Bucket Seats were completely redone

The rollbar was redone and mounted using the original drillholes

The broken original windshield was replaced with a tailormade securit glass 

Radiators, fuel tank, fuel pumps .. everything had to be refurbished to assure reliability on the track
