Fiat X19 I believe?  Did it swap ends?  They were rumoured to be prone to that.

It's in very clean condition. It looks to have had a fair amount of restoration work and has certainly been repainted at some point.
It didn't so much crash. It rolled back with the door open...

Was that a new door Ben? Surely you didn't get the old one that straight again with no filler?

It was a new door which the owner of the car sourced. Unfortunately it was quite badly damaged from being dropped and had many dents and other damage but nothing that couldn't be repaired.
It was better than the old door :lol:

That happened to a customer when I was working at a petrol station, they opened the door and got out of the car without putting on the handbrake and the car rolled back, the door got stuck on a pole and the door hyper extended...
