We spotted this car in Chikkaballapur, when Karthik and Me had been there to drop Mr. Behram for the OTR event.

The owner of this car is an Engineer in HAL's Helicopter Division. He is not new to our Club as he used to attend the meet along with his friend Mr. Venkatesh.

The car is very well restored. Its 1980s model. The leather seats are from Stanley. He has stocked up enough spares in this car. He uses some imported grease as shown in one of the pics.

Here are the pics.

In some of the pics there is a radio antenna installed in side the dicky. Does it comes out of the body or remains inside. As i don't see it coming out, was thinking do it works from inside ?

1. The leather seats on this car is from Stanley. Costs 40k!!!
2. Sir, do you have pics of the Padmini.
3. Have you started re-restoring your Deluxe?
1. Are the seats all leather? The side panels would have to be a matching vinyl I assume or a suitable colour. I'll check around here to get an estimate on a leather/matching vinyl for the seats.
2. I will be going over to the gentleman's home to take some photos and check the car out more closely. No price was discussed when I spoke to him and I will check out around to get an ideal of a fair price for the car here in Calcutta. Three years back there were many Fiats & Padminis around, now maybe !5% to be seen on the streets. If we lived here and had space I would buy up as many as possible as an investment and to keep them available for restoration and continued use.
3. Not yet, I've finished all the mechanical work and the the engine will be rebuilt shortly and the chrome work has to redone.
The next issue that I am debating is whether to change the paint colour and a new interior. I've been researching the options available in Europe and will probably restore WBF-1 to a European top of the line Model. The Purist, Purist side is currently losing out to the Romantic Purist side.

As they say "Getting there is half the fun".

Hoping to get some feed back on how the 1991 model is rated. Not a classic but looks like one.

British and BBMP have some roles to play in this.

The Grease may be Nulon L-80, that costs Rs 400/- approx per Kg. It contains PTFE. It's just my guess. I use Nulon L80 grease in my Padmini. It really lasts long.

Nice ads!! The best thing about a Padmini is that its very photogenic. A Padmini in any condition, any color, it always looks good in photos.

Default My MOMO wheel

My newly acquired MOMO steering wheel from Stephen's Square, Bangalore.
Used one with very good upholstery and hub suiting old combination-switch of Fiats. Price was shockingly good.

I got the steering fitted today, will post pics soon. Its very easy to handle now, I got used to it in a minute. As of now here are the pics of the Wheel alone.

Wow! Now the steering talks. Undoubtedly, you deserve such a nice MOMO steering. If I am not wrong, these too are Italian. May be this was the only missing bit from your car after restoration. It suits your driveing style too. You now got a real Sports car.

Enjoy driving!

By the way, did Suji tell you that this steering wheel was very sparingly used and is in immaculate condition? I will let you guys guess its price and Suji reveal it later

"Stephen's Square, Bangalore" This is the new hangout place for we 3 Idiots(Sujith, Karthik and me). This place is the most happening place for Fiat parts.

Thanks to our Dear friend Mr.Noddy for getting us so many Fiat parts for real cheap rates.

More details of parts recently procured from Stephen's square soon.
