This engine now resides in a Dolphin (after I "re-kindled" the racing spirit in my mentor; how ironical) which was supposed to have raced in Speedrun '06 but we couldnt finish the car in time. Its a sleeper in the true sense, we found the car buried halfway in a field in Maddur and planned to race it as is, without any exterior mods. Even the wheels had rust on them and that would have been something to watch, even though it might not have won against the present open class cars.

Ananth,

Do you happen to know anyone that might have such a fiat engine for sale?

Cheers,

My favourite padmini on this thread is CTA 3141. gosh i really would like to know if this owner wants to sell of his car. where did he get those alloys from, has he off-setted the wheels. if thats the case, the suspension must be in awful condition. anyone has driven this??

it belongs to outlaw @ TBHP (Wasif at Bangalore) - the car is at Mangalore now with his dad.

the tyres & wheels (13 inchers) were imported from singapore. it still has stock suspension.

i don't think it is for sale.

Or Hyderabad for that metter to meet a certain Shyam and see if we can "marao" a certain Standard 10 and then fit twin carbs on it. By the way, I had seen a super 10 with twin carbs and driven it too.

Best regards,

And the certain Shyam would've got you any number of certain Standard 10s/Pennants had you made it to Hyderabad atleast 10 years ago, when such cars could be had for throwaway prices!

Interesting to know about the twin carb Super 10- any pics. of it?

I'll agree, a very nicely done up Fiat in Calicut. When I was a kid there was a Mr. Merchant who used to park his three fancy fiats in my building. All three had the works with pioneer music sys with eq/amp, nice paint and skirts done by mid-town motors, with vrrroooomm vroooom sound. He had a driver who would do all the mechanical work right here. Grew up longing to have a fiat like that. Then bought a few and souped up one and drove all the way to mount abu and back. Enjoyed every bit of that drive. Fuel economy was 14 kmpl. Never got an opportunity after that to do up a Fiat but that urge is still there. Have a few parts stashed up for that, double barrel webber, Exhaust, meters, Lights, afloor shift and a nice lil FIAT steering wheel. Sigh!!! maybe some day I will.

Hello Nigel - by the way is Mr.Merchant's first name Harshit? If yes, he is on the forum. And please please please post photographs of the double barrel Weber carburettor. Do you have the intake manifold also?

Best regards,
