The instrument cluster is indeed original to the car.

I had thought that the old type meters did not come with the new type combination switch.

Samsag wish you good luck for your car restoration, and adding to the point as you have mentioned your liking for quarter glass even I had the same. Why cut glass and re assemble it to the existing door why not buy the doors from the scrap yard and get it fixed to the car as the process is easier than fidling with the glass and mechanism.

The draft badge for the Lucknow club is looking cool and elegant also. great job guys, let the Lucknow fiat club rock.

Dear Samsag12, The meters on your S1 is not original. If I remember correctly S1s came with different meters, with a clock on them, also LED lights for oil, fuel reserve etc. Please do check it out. Coz I had owned a 137D 1997 model, so when I was purchasing this car, I sure did have seen S1s at the showroom. Also S1s had water jetted inlet manufolds, for emission control, I guess, also had a different exhaust manufold from that of other fiats.Please make a double check on these matters.

Hey GEN X JEEP please refer to my post no 42 on this thread. My PP S1 is an August 1995 model probably the first batch of S1 labeled PP. So the meter is the same as pre S1 Padminis. Later on it was changed to the clock one. Sir mine has the 4X2 exhaust manifold, i.e. there are 2 exhaust pipes running from exhaust manifold to the the catalytic converter which joins the muffler followed by the tail pipe (1.75" in diameter). Mine didn't have the catalytic converter as we didn't opted for the unleaded petrol one.

OK so thanks to you all for helping me. (Sirji lekin aapne kabhi zikar nahi kiya is baare mein) BTW regarding the meter console of my car, many are raising the doubt that it is not an OEM one which came on the S1. As stated previously the car came with that meter from the factory and it was never changed as whenever the car used to visit the garage i used to accompany it and sat there all the time watching the fun of repairing the car even as a kid. Adheesh already pointed out that it is an original one. Seems like i have a unique model of S1 the Special one.

Thanks for the best wishes and support Mr. Chakradhar. Its a delight for me to have such kind of support from various parts of the country. As stated in my introductory post (herein refer to as 1st post) i got inspired by the various fiat clubs prevailing in India. Always thought of how to save the heritage of Indian motoring from being scrapped. The answer to this was here in Team-bhp. So i took the initiative and formed the club in order to contribute a little from my side to preserve our heritage.
Once again i would like to thank you and all the members who helped and inspired me to take this initiative.

Dear Sir, I am terribly sorry If I had misled you. I am also a diehard fiat fan. I along with my bro own a couple of millicentos, also under restoration is a FIAT 1200 GRANLUCE whose finished pics will soon appear on T BHP site.
Thank you & Best regards
