Very nice, and my favorite color combination!
Beautiful car. Great color!
It must have been an original Cali car as it seems to have emissions eq. that others didn't have.
Did EVERY '74 have orange carpet?
Thanks for the kind words. I believe it lived in Colorado for a good portion of time. I'm pretty sure the carpet started out as red and has since faded to its current yellow-orange color.
So much win & quintessential X1/9, in those pics!!
I have a few pictures of Mike car from many years ago
I bought my X new in 8/1974 with the same color combination. My carpet is the same color as yours and it has not significantly faded. I think you have the original carpet. I chose green because the only other choice at the time was red, and I had seen too many faded red Fiats to go down that path. I see that your car has the dealer installed radio with the A pillar mounted antenna. That seemed to be the popular spot for dealers to stick the antenna early on.
Interesting fact on the carpet color. My sister had one of the first X1/9's in California back in 1974 (From SLO). It had red carpet and A-pillar mounted antenna. It was painted bright yellow, which is actually my favorite color on an X. She let me drive it all through my high school days. Lots of fun!
I have a black one w/orange carpet, and a french blue one that also came with orange carpet.
Had a chance to take the X1/9 on a road trip. Sorry about the sideways picture.
My X in front of my Giulia. Just like the way it looks.
mine with the wheels I sprayed myself

Can't see most pics...photobucket mess
Sweet ...very nice
Maybe my second favorite X1/9 color, giallo being my first.
... as long as it is NOT 2-tone blue
Two-tone blue is OK, but there are probably 10 other colors that I like better on the X.
