Really don't know how I missed this thread! My grandparents used to stay just off Hughes Road and I used to see the BCMA premises almost every day during my summer vacations. And later, once my father was transferred to Mumbai, BCMA was a daily sight on my way to & from school. Brings back very old memories of my childhood. Thanks so much for sharing GTO.

Here is an ad for the newly launched Premier President - however the illustration still shows some features from the preceding Delight model.

Very interesting since the family has known BCMA and PAL folk for decades. I once cadged a lift in a new Fiat 1100D being driven to Pune from Mumbai for delivery to the dealer/customer, when I was a callow 12 year old. Even then I remember being surprised at the speeds the car was run at, given all I had heard about the installed governor for controlling rpm during running in. Every opportunity the driver got, he moved the shifter to neutral and I suppose that kept the engine from seizing at the higher speeds it seemed to be running. I guessed that the governor was either disengaged or was a myth.

I also note MOPAR in one of the photos: I though it was a new initiative with the Compass launch!
