Feroze Mehta (Krish Uncle), Jimmy Marker, Kaizad Engineer, Adheesh and Ryasp Kothavala are not able to make it.

What about Pune guys?
Karl, Subhash, Kiran, Shrivz, Amey, Vikramji, how about gracing the occasion with FIATful enthusiasts.

I am ready to go and make reservations, myself.
So, Monday noon is deadline for confirmations.

I am no guru, but that is indeed a Fiat 1100 Delite. The grille is original as well. Karl said so.

Hey it's indeed a delite, 1964 onwards. However, I don't think the grille is original. Cyrus's fiat has an original grille. The bumpers and steering look original. Where is the car ??

The car in question is a Delight that was available from late 64 to 66-67. It's distinguising features were the combination of the longer rear bumper, early clip type wheels and a flat stainless steel grille of same pattern as Super Select. The meters were in a bright blue.

In 66-67 the grille changed to the aluminium variety, and the meters black. The bumper shrunk and wheels changed to Padmini in 68.

Cyrus, the grille you have is the aluminium one, available from 67 to 72. The other slimmer slatted steel one you have was fitted to Delights in other parts of the world.
