The Classic Fiat X1/9 Keeps Cool With CSF

Old Italians Get The Ultimate High-Performance Radiator

The Fiat X1/9 is a two-seater, targa top, small Italian sports car with a mid-engine configuration pumping out 74 horse-power. The X1/9 was hot during its prime in the ’70s and ’80s, a “go-to” choice for young sports car enthusiasts. Popularity quickly grew as the vehicle performed extraordinarily well in slalom and hill climb races. Originally designed by car manufacturer Bertone, it was initially made as a Fiat model until 1982. Fiat then handed production of the car back to Bertone, who continued to produce the compact sports car until 1989. They have not been forgotten and are still quite the classic collectible car for automotive enthusiasts. For those still enjoying their X1/9 for track use, weekend cruising, or even daily driving, maintaining the vehicle with adequate cooling is key to having these classic cars stay on the road.  More and more OEM copper/brass radiators are failing, leaving owners scrambling for a reliable replacement. Until now, most (if not all) after-market options available are not built to a high standard, and often prematurely fail after only a few years, some failing within a few months after install.

Because of the lack of a high-quality aftermarket radiator available, “The Cooling Experts” at CSF were called upon by Italian classic car aficionados Midwest-Bayless, to address this problem and collaborated to produce the ultimate high-performance all-aluminum replacement radiator for Fiat X1/9

When I showed up to the event, I immediately went straight to his car and could not believe my eyes; the build was PERFECT. The Grigio Telesto paint that Marc seems to have on all of his vehicles, the brushed wheels, the bright brakes. You could instantly tell this was one of Marc’s builds, and you once you laid eyes on it you couldn’t stop looking.
