What he said. You can also set various filters, including searching worldwide. It will default to only searching listings that are posted to your national website. It won't list items that don't list shipping to your location, however. I will occasionally search localized ebay sites and if I find something that doesn't ship to me, I'll just message the seller. Often they'll be happy to give you a shipping price. Some of my more important searches I have send me a daily new listing summary via email.

BTW did this one ever race? I've only ever seen one photo of it with numbers, but it could have been doctored or be from a heritage exhibition event.

The Abarth team started to plan a new rally car after the 131 Abarth grp 4 had turned uncompetitive, and were working on the grp B Lancia 037 which was going to have both a supercharger and turbo. Abarth needed a test bench for the new engine, and it was based on 131 and 031 Abarth, although it had a different body and was called the Abarth 035.

No - never raced as far as im aware. Strict test bed as far as I know. I've seen one with some race decals but always believed it was a post exhibition event.
Interesting info here:

The 035 was entered in practice for Le Mans in 1980 but didn't make the race....

Interesting info regarding Le Mans as the car isn't listed in most of the 1980 entry lists :

Maybe it ran at the April test session rather than practice for the race in June ?

Not the first car that comes to mind when I think of rallying, but I like it a lot.

There was a Citroen SM entered at Le Mans in 1972 which didn't qualify for the race. I'm guessing its the same car given the common sponsors.....a decal set is available for this one too :
