Description: Between 1949 and 1971, Abarth was the name to be feared in the world of small-displacement racing

Between 1949 and 1971, Abarth was the name to be feared in the world of small-displacement racing. Carlo Abarth’s cars captured 5,000 outright or class victories, which helped to sell a lot of highly-tuned Fiats, such as this 1967 Fiat Abarth 1000 OTR for sale on Hemmings.com. Based on the exquisitely styled Fiat 850 Coupe, the 1000 OTR could buzz along at better than 100 MPH, wringing 74 horsepower from its 982cc four-cylinder. The “OT” in the name stands for Omologato Turismo. or homologated for touring car racing, while the “R” refers to the Radiale engine, which had a special cylinder head with hemispherical combustion chambers. (A driveReport on a 1967 1000 OTR Coupe appeared in the March 2008 issue of Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car .) From the seller’s description:

This Abarth OTR 1000 Coupe has complete ownership history. It was original sold through Henry Mearig Inc. the Lancaster, Pennsylvania dealer for Alfa and Fiat. Purchased by John Mitchell and employee of Henry Mearig, Inc. John started racing his Abarth soon after its purchase. The Pennsylvania Hillclimb Association has records of John Mitchell competing in his FIAT Abarth from 1967 to 1970. Subsequently it was in an accident one evening on his way home, the Abarth was set aside for many years.

In 1977, the Abarth was purchased by Brian Hershock of Holtwood, Pennsylvania. Soon thereafter and still in need of restoration, the Abarth found its way Henry Mearig in 1980. Mr. Mearig still owned the local Fiat dealership.

Charles (Chuck) A. Callis and Janice M. Callis of Manheim, Pennsylvania, purchased the car from Henry Mearig around 1990. Chuck was general manager of Henry Mearig Inc. Chuck started restoring the car before it was sold in November 1992 to Jim Saunders of Sydney, Australia.

Once on Australian shores, it once again sat for many years until it purchased by Graeme Towers in April 2005. At this time, the Abarth was stripped to bare metal for a complete and thorough restoration. Having spent well over $100k on its restoration, the outcome can only be viewed as superb. The Abarth ran for the first time in 38 years on 16 September 2006 and was registered on 7 October 2006. It has been used sparingly since and remains in absolutely superb condition throughout.
