Nope, it is indeed the original wheel and horn button which debuted on the 8. It is also illustrated in this Super 10 Brochure.

No surprise here.Fiat and 118NE seems to rust very fast. Tinkering bills almost every year.Sorry Cyrus,1100D, Karl,Stanher and fiat lovers.Except tinkering work they are good cars.

Nice Brochure Karl.With a magnifier I was able to read the steering gives a comfortable,fatique free drive.I acknowledge it as the latter steering wheels also had the same diameter.

The grille looked to me like any 'normal' super 10 grille.....couldve been like the one on this car too.....I would surely like to show him the pic....but not sure if thats gonna get him all emotional!
There have unfortunately been too many standards Ive seen/heard of that have simply been left unattended for years & eventually fallen apart with rust & rot & the owners being reluctant to sell even to the right person, claiming they r sentimentally attached to it, family "nishaani" blah blah blah...no need to guess who eventually ends up buying it!
Yup the steering wheel made me feel its the earliest of the Super 10s....however I havent found this type of wheel on a few older 10s I've seen, like that black one in Secunderabad (which ur cousin Asthad knew as well- its now languishing like this carl!).....that had a normal "Herald-type" wheel......or could it have been changed?

Hey karl, looks like the pics. of the Super 10s you'd posted here have begun working wonders already!
I didnt even get to show the owner of the junking super 10 those pics. and he himself gave me a call the other night saying that he's interested in selling the car to someone genuine..........however he refused to quote a price & said "you (the buyer) make me an offer first"......so, interested, anyone?
He also said if he doesnt succeed in selling it for a price he's ok with, he'd proceed with restoring it with my help, which IMHO is just as good!
He gave me a week's time to get back to him.
Btw, stampro, karl & other standard 10 gurus- Ive just taken a closer look at the interior pic. of the junkingg car & notice it has no ashtray on the "dashboard" rail centre, right in front of the rearview mirror, unlike the pennant.....didnt Super 10s/early 10s have those?

A very original and complete VW variant. I think this was one of the cars brought down for the indo-norwegian project in the "70's.

I have no idea about the car. A friend snapped it for me, lying in an old parsee bungalow a couple of years ago.

It was a project to promote mechanized fishing techniques in kerala.(This was in the 60's-70's period) It was a joint undertaking by the central dept and govt(i think), of norway.They had a large settlement in cochin, and a looot of VW's, ie, beetles, microbuses, and a very large amount of variants were brought down by them during that time.
