yes, the car is indeed rare as I have never heard of it here in the US. They were/are very popular in Italy (Fiat) and Spain (Seat) and I have been longing to get my hands, ideally, on a sedan, but a wagon looks interesting enough.
If it helps, this is the information the seller provided me with.
I found more information about the car online and I think this is a 1974 model with a 1.6L engine and around 70hphttp://www.automobile-catalog.com/auta_perf1.php
Thanks for the advice,
"There are some blemished areas and took shots of the apparent rust. The mileage shown in the photo is correct. The car could be in full service with a fluid change. The tires are a little weather-checked & will need replacement at some point.
As you can see in the photo, the smog pump is removed, but those parts are available. I have also converted it to electronic ignition. I had the car repainted in the original color soon after I bought it.
I bought the car from a friend’s wife. My friend is an Italian car mechanic with a shop. He has serviced the car since the late 1980’s. My friend rebuilt the motor due to a failed timing belt from the previous owner. When he and his wife owned the car, they had toured the west on a 3000 mile trip. They had originally obtained the car with 40,000 miles.
I bought the car in Spokane, Wa & immediately drove it home on a 1200 mile trip.
The driver’s seat has vinyl that has deteriorated and I have put the sheepskin on it for better wear. The stuffing is fine, just the vinyl is shot on the seat portion.
The headliner is in good shape, as it was replaced in the 1990’s, the door panels nice and only piece missing is the driver door handle is missing the chrome plastic escutcheon, which are available.
The dash has never been cut for a radio and is completely intact.
