i know this CNT 786, which is the original fiat1100 frm italy, i forgot the owner's name but he stays near Vijaya main college, RV road, near Southend circle. i m seeing this car frm past 10years

This guy re stores and re pain this car every year.

i dont know it belongs to which state, but its original italian 1100 Delight, mostly he has changed its registeration because the CNT has 786, and he is a muslim guy, he stays in between madhava rao park circle to vijaya main college, RV Road, near south end circle.

Sorry but MR was for Maharashtra only, TN regns. (Madras state initially) were either MS (for Madras city) and MD (for the districts)

Are the bumper guards from amby or some other car?
This car would look soooo nice if i could have the following toppings:
Original bumpers, crommodora grille with FIAT monogram, white front indicator lenses, FIAT 1100 D mono on boot, Steel concave side trims, Quarter glasses, round side indicators, thin steering wheel, and a neat 90 mph speedo with toggle switches on the console.
You can round that off with a sunblind on the rear windscreen.

Default 1998 S1

My friend's friend has a Premier Padmini S1. He said it was one of the last few Fiats made by Premier and was purchased in 1998 (I think its 97 manufactured). He had pais 4+lacs for it. It has a factory fitted power steering he said. I couldnt get any more details. I should get some details and some pics. This could be for sale and I am interested and will be meeting him today. Car is supposedly in mint condition and original

I have never heard of any Padmini with factory fitted power steering. Can someone confirm if the last few Padmini's manufactured had power steering? Also, was it that expensive? 4+lakhs is really whopping.

An early reply will be much appreciated. I will keep checking this thread for next 2 hrs atleast

As far as I know (and am 101 % sure) Padminis NEVER came with factory fitted power steering. The last of the lot had a Nissan A12 (from the 118 NE ) engine from the factory else it would have a standard Fiat 1089cc engine with a double barrel Mikuni carburetor from the factory.

Also the last of Padminis were sold for a on road price (Bombay) of Rs. 2,11,750 to be exact.

Hope this helps you in your purchasing decision.

Regards,
Adheesh Parelkar

Appreciate your speedy reply and the valuable information. All happened over the phone. I will be meeting the owner tomorrow morning. I will post detailed information tomorrow. If he allows pics to be taken, I will post them too. Arun1100 will accompany me tomorrow. Karthik1100 also may make it. Lets see how it goes.

You guys know the best.

And i remember your dad written in some thread that he was looking out for '97 S1 which was altered to be fitted with a Nissan engine. Hope this is the same model.

And I remember the latest Padminis' had steering wheel similar to the shape of an Alto steering. Can you confirm this?

Indeed. The last of the Padminis came with a Alto & Maruti 1000 type two spoke steering wheel with a very small PAL logo in the center. The dickey monogram was also sticker type laminated one in silver with a blue background.
