The Dukkar line up looks gangsta in a cute sort of way.

The foreigners who took interest in your cars...were they Italian by any chance? Great to see all the recognition the Club is getting!

Can Some provide me with the sales brochure of the 1959 Select, karl can you help. Actually I was looking for the seat / door pad pattern, the color scheme of the engine bay and chassis components.

Also what should be the type of filler neck for the petrol tank for the March 1959 Select, should it be screw type or the quarter turn twist type.

While googling I did came across select brochuers with 2 tone color scheme both on body as well as on wheels??? A reference image attached, was the same color option available in India??

Also was there any emblem/ mongram on the left hand side of the car just after the side trim on the rear fender (on the petrol filler neck side)?????? I vaguely recall there had been some discussion in this regard on the forum. I will post some pictures to support the arousal of this doubt.

Hi Manish,
You and Sherrif had mentioned that the workshop manuals of the FIAT were available on the Team - BHP site. I couldn't find them. Where are they posted?

Default Fiat 1100R

This Fiat 1100R can be found in Indiranagar. Lying on the road since almost a decade.

The front grill is not original. The number plate is still in old colors.

Bad choice of tail lights. Tata Sumo lights would have suited better.

@ Karthik: Wonderful news clipping ! Proud to be a Fiatian..
@ Arun: Guys please don't let the Fiat 1100 R get scrapped without your knowledge. If you must, do keep some of its vital parts as these will be extremely rare in the near future, as this car was never produced in India. Take the steering (very very rare), the meters, the engine bits, the wheels, etc.
Edit: The body panels - doors, bootlid, bonnet etc too.

Wow, the news article is awesome, great media attention, Bye the way for change why not we invite auto journalists for our Fiat National meet. I am sure Bijoy / srini / pablo from BSM and or AJD (my favourite) from Zigwheels would be great.


, guys The chassis construction is Semi integral and not monocoque as told in the News Article, there is a world of difference between the two designs. Monocoque is sure better and is the current norm, even the SUV have gone that way.

Further also there is world of difference between Early Fiats (Indian or Imported) to the Normal Premier Padmani. Sorry no offence made but thats the way it is.

Arun,

I saw the Fiat millicento which was once put up on carwale.com and reportedly having being sold for 50K, the car is original barring grill, lights and wheels.

Here is the link to the pictures

See the small parking light in front

Inviting these people for the next rally is your job

Yup, Sorry for that mistake.

Further also there is world of difference between Early Fiats (Indian or Imported) to the Normal Premier Padmani. Sorry no offence made but thats the way it is.

Because of value engineering

Planning to speak to the owner. All of us should give a try. One friend of mine spoke to the owner, but he refused to sell.
