Came across this car last week, a pretty original 1975 Premier Padmini, single meticulous owner, since then. Each of his cars have a separate garage. With car placed exactly perpendicular and the steering wheel exactly horizontal.The car has been maintained only at Swadi Garage, to maintain the quality.
Infact one of the best PP ive seen in recent times. The car is up for sale, as the owner is buying a Nano. The car was offered to me, but know it for a fact that wont be to justify the maintenance that has been taken to keep it in this shape.
Couldnt post earlier as my comp was acting up.

Let the pictures do the talking. The last picture should hint the care the gentlemen takes to maintain his car.

Not exactly an original car, going by the mods like the lack of quarterglasses and front grille (should've had a President type of grille) but definitely a well-maintained car! The owner does deserve his credit for the care he's taken.

Rubber stoppers on the wall Aha! brilliant idea, its that we do it other way its not on the wall but on the door, ether ways its to protect the door, pretty nice car. As shyam said it not completely an original it must have been modified to give a latest look then by removing quarter glass and the grille however it is a good buy for a fiat/PP lover and bringing it back to the exact specification should not be a big issue.

Imagine guys this black beauty with white wall tyres, or two huge Hella halogen lamps with dull black rims.....Oh boy oh boy a real stunner on the way!

@Allana- The car is in South Bombay and have PMd you, dont want infractions here.

@Chanu- They are not rubber stopper but slightly hard sponge.

@RJVora- The uncle is not south Indian, he's a maharashtrian.

Cyrus- Yes, its a pretty good merc. Hope he did not go ga-ga over the new custom made leather steering.
