I had the golden opportunity to buy the old Premier President model from my grandfather... But I wasted it... he sold it to someone else... :-(
I could've restored it to its initial glory.

V-16, congrats on your project. Do post the pictures as it happens.

Enjoy Goa. Plenty of jalopies running around...keep your camera armed and ready. See what I found on my last 1 day trip on some desolate road behind Calangute.

Superb gogi bhai!! Your car makes me really envious man! Not only is the paint job good but everything else also has been done accordingly......my car got the paint job done well enough but they buggered up many other things while the car was there.....like the dicky hinges, bonnet hook, ignition coil etc....!

Although when i got the car it didn't have the front window quarter glass, i am in the process of getting them and adding the quarter glasses to the front window. Had a long discussion with Fiat experts of our forum (Karl-l
Loose, President etc) and all of them were of the opinion that the car should have a quarter glass as even the old archive pics I have of this model, verify. So that being done now. The only problem i would face may be procuring new Green tinted glasses as now they are not made and getting quarter glasses in those tints would be next to impossible, Till that is sorted out, the car will sport tis normal full length front windows. I dont want to delay any further. Anyone have any leads on where i may get these tinted glasses from in or out of bombay? The company is "LIGHT"
