Ohh yeah! Arun did gift me the FIAT monogram and is in excellent condition. At this point, I should also say that he had gifted me with a Delight grill a month ago, void its logo. Now I will be putting the Delight grill with the FIAT monogram onto my S1 shortly.

What is the best way to get the Aluminium Delight grill cleaned so that it would be sparkling?

Here we are thinking of saving the fiats from being scrapped and you already started the trend of selling the owned vehicle to others. just kidding.
Do you think it would sell for 32K. Karthik bhai sell it to a fiat lover only otherwise it would end up being scrapped in future.


IMHO don't sell it. you have cared a lot for it and selling it will short your collection of PP's to 2

The story is like this. I already had enough number of cars with me. 2 of them were already Fiats. When I saw this car, I got too tempted by it and bought it. Basically I jumped the gun!

Now, I have a very difficult time to maintain my cars (5 in total including this one). Of course, it will be sold to a Fiat lover. No doubt about it at all. Saving Fiats also aligns to the vision of our club.

My only other option was, to safe gaurd this Fiat (as I 100% know I cant drive and keep this up and running all the time) in a friend's farm house. This could be a recipe for disaster, as it will start rusting and falling apart. Rats will not help either. This car has a lot of juice left in it. Its best enjoyed than preserved for future.

You are kidding a lot. Reduce it.

As Karthik said we will sell the car to a Fiat lover ONLY. Otherwise the car would have been sold long back. Actually i was supposed to use this car, but because of my own problems I am unable to keep it with me.

OK so that's the story behind it. You get tempted very quickly it seems Surely you can sell it for a good amount but judge the buyer and his passion towards it. Will be following the classified section just for your car.. Hope it goes into right hands and still be a part of the FCB.
It is the normal Padmini model or something special. Looks very neat inside and out. Did it went under restoration job recently or you bought it is as is.

No restoration. Its fully original. It is as it is. It still runs on the original dynamo and still has the wiper spray bag
