This weekend was a good change to spend a couple of good, solid days on doing some work (at the moment there’s plenty to do!). And since the old girl has been on the rotissary I haven’t had a chance to spend any time on her at all! So I started with using the pressure cleaner to spray away all of the dirst and grease that was preventing me from even finding the nuts and bolts I needed to get to! WOW! What a difference. There was sooooo much red dirt and muck it was unbelievable! It started... more

We’ve taken the motor out with no problems. It was pretty easy really! The original low compression headed 843cc won’t be going back in though, we have a 903cc from an 850 sport coupe all ready to revamp and put in which might make some of the hills west of Brisbane a bit easier to climb!  Read More →

About Me

I already own an 850 Coupe and an 850 Spider (amongst other Fiats) and when I heard about this van being an 850 derivitive I couldn\'t help but get it and start restoring it. One day it will be a unique part of the 850 family! I haven\'t heard of any other 900t vans in Australia at all, there are a couple of 850t\'s but none like this one. Although perhaps not a sought after model, it will certainly be a unique example of the Fiat marque. This particular van is a 1977 900T Van which would have originally been a delivery van. It has been converted to a camper with an after-market pop top fibreglass roof which I will also restore. Please enjoy this site as a progression of the restoration process. By all means if you have any advice to pass on, feel free! This is my first restoration project. My father, Ian, is also helping me. He has a background of being an aircraft mechanic (F1-11\'s) and has rebuilt a few engines in his time. Thanks, Paul.
