Hi all,
I have been gone to native place Guhagar on 20th October & again visited a owner of Fiat 1100R there. The pic of it has been posted by Amol about 6-7 months ago.
The owner has purchased the car from ex-RTO commissioner of Mumbai in 2004 & still has a valid RC book with a Mumbai registered number & the road tax is also paid up to date.
The owner Mr.Rajesh Shetye has done some modifications such as AC Fittings, Momo Steering, PAL Speedometer, the owner still has a original Instruction Manual (Printed in Italy) & also Part Catlogue (Printed in Italy).
I have got the color zerox of instruction manual

Wow, thanks Arun. Can we have a similar count for Pune, Hyderabad, etc ?
I don't recall having seeing any in Mumbai, my last sighting was more than 12 years ago.

As per my knowledge, only 4 Fiat 1100R's were left in Mumbai & 2 of them were used to be there somewhere in Andheri RTO Office as the owner of this car told me.
