I had a Fiat mate who had one, 1.6 pushrod motor, with single carb and leaf springs, his manual version was no faster than my 1.5 automatic Passat, i know cause back in the 70's we raced each other to and from the pub, back in the olden days when there were no speed camera's.
He admitted that it run out of puff at about 130 klms.
But it had a ripper rear handbrake, when Alfa Romeo were looking at cheapening the Alfasud replacment with the 33, the rear discs had to go, and the 131 brakes had long been for payed for its development and tooling.
In 305,000 klms, i have replaced the shoes on the back twice, the last time because of a leaking wheel cylinder, Colin.
