8.10.17 - This car is sold

Up for sale is a beautiful Bertone X1/9 ready for a new home.   

If you're looking for a jump in and go, show-ready X1/9,
this is the one for you.



This car is Ohio titled, by the owner of Midwest-Bayless and will be an individual (not dealer) transaction.  

This car has 64K very well cared-for miles and has been mechanically refurbished by Midwest-Bayless


The 1500cc Bosch L-Jet fuel injection engine runs great and gets super mileage. The chassis rides comfortably around town or on the highway. The 5-Spd manual transmission shifts perfectly in all gears and is comfortable at highway cruising speed.

It has an extremely nice factory interior and exterior, and is a reliable, mechanically sound, un-modified example of the highly sought-after fuel injected Bertone badged X1/9. 

It takes an enormous amount of time, effort and money to restore a worn-out X1/9 to this level. 

You can begin enjoying this car right now, for a fraction of the cost of doing a restoration yourself.
