so, with much searching i can find photos many specs but no production numbers.....so, were they homologated? how many were made?...is it worth the trouble???[i'd have to part with a nice 356 coupe to pull it off.]

And Abarth-Simca 1300 was a far better proposition.
Nice street car though.

I saw only one in the mid seventies for sale at 10 000 Bf or 250 Euros complete as new
what a pity you have to contact the french Abarth club I hope they will help you, in Belgium there is one "doctor" Mousset expert of Italian rarities with Fiat engine but I haven't his phone or address

This OTAS Abarth was originally called "Francis Lombardi Grand Prix" and was created from the Fiat 850 coupè, with a design similar to a little Maserati Ghibli...
I don't recall any race... perhaps in Italian Gt Championship...
I remember an other Fiat 850 "specialized", designed by Carrozzeria Moretti, classified 21. at the Targa Florio 1967, drivers Giuseppe Parla and "Sastri": I founded a pic of the car:
