1932 Fiat Pickup Truck - Part Italian, Part English, All Cool.

I've never featured a car this old before. There's not much I can write about it, as, quite frankly, I know nothing about 1930s Fiat pick-up trucks.

This one is no longer all Fiat, however. It has an engine and overdrive transmission from an MG Midget. The engine sports a Weber carb and aluminum intake. The clutch and brake hydraulics are from a Triumph.

The seller states that it had a frame off restoration "in the past" and has been sitting for a year. It appears to be in nice overall condition.

This is one of those cars that is so different, so unique, that it would be a huge hit at any local Cruise Night.

Located in Gresham, OR, click here to see the eBay listing.

With so many great Italian powertrains out there, why did he have to pick England's very worst? If he had to use English, why not the wonderful Ford Kent! This one would be worth more without any engine at all. That said, if I had a place for it I would buy it and install a Fiat 124 package.

I was thinking the same thing. A 2.0 liter Fiat motor is what this needs.

Maybe a 1750 Alfa motor.

That is true...the end result is very cool and it is probably a mixture of the best components.
