We are a family owned business with a passion for supporting classic Fiat / Lancia enthusiasts and their vehicles.
Midwest X1/9, specialists in Fiat Bertone X1/9, and Bayless Fiat Lancia World, a respected source of parts for all Fiat / Lancia models were combined into a single entity in 2009 named Midwest-Bayless Italian Auto.
Resources from both companies were consolidated in a 20,000SF facility in Columbus Ohio, and the Bayless name continues to support clients like you around the world, with over 45 years of continuous operation.
Owners Matt and Marnie Brannon, along with son Brayden, are true Fiatisti, owning and driving many Fiat cars for street and competition. And all three drive SCCA-prepared Fiat race cars.
We pride ourselves on offering the correct quality parts and services for your car, and offering choices for those parts that no one else can.
We are the only major Fiat / Lancia parts supplier to offer O.E. Original Equipment, Quality Aftermarket, Warranted Used and Exclusive Custom items for your car.
Many of the innovations that we have introduced are copied by others. We invented the 1-10 satisifaction guaranteed rating scale for used Fiat / Lancia parts over 15 years ago. And we were the first vendor to clearly identify every product we offer on-line as being either O.E. or aftermarket.
We strive to provide O.E. and European maker replacement parts whenever possible, even if it means they cost a little more. And our no-questions asked satisfaction guarantee on all used items we offer cannot be matched by anyone.
If you're shopping elsewhere you should prepare to deal with the consequences of lesser quality items, and limited service after the sale.
However, if you want the best parts and best customer service, your search stops here.
Shop with confidence, it’s our honor to serve you and your Italian Sports Car.
Matt, Marnie, Brayden and Staff,
Midwest-Bayless Italian Auto
