A beautiful PP available for purchase in the classifieds - http://classifieds.team-bhp.com/buy-.../Padmini.html/.

As usual the price is on the higher side.

One might argue that the price is on the higher side. It is fairly high, one cannot deny. However, it contains one or two non original parts of note.

I} What is wrong with the steering? Reminds me of the steering of the Fintail Mercedes-Benz of the Sixties.

II} The 'PAL' Badges should be present.

III} This car has Delight indicators.

Overall, one must comment, that the restorer has tried really hard to pass this car off as a Fiat 1100D. Still, worth a buy at about ₹1,20,000 at the max.

Cheers!

That Steering is fitted with a period horn ring assembly (not Sweet trade one) which IIRC was available in either in green or dark blue shade, it must have been painted in white.

Regarding the price, IMO Padminis still don't command that much high price in today's market, after all its just the asking price.

Thanks! Yes, indeed the car is on an original steering wheel, whose circumference has been painted white, as is evident.

And regarding the horn ring, I do remember seeing the same.

Thanks anyway, for the minor correction!

Here's one more ad. on OLX regarding 1971 model Delight, appears to have most fittings still intact, including the elusive front grill, aluminum door lock handle, push button boot lock to name a few.
Price too isn't that high.

Another one, a Premier President. Man.. I so wish it was in Lucknow.

This mint Fintail
This mint Fintail looks suspicious. No doubt it is in very good shape. But the series W110 with a model "200" was built between 1965 and 1968. Somewhere it is describes as a 200 S which is also wrong. Looks to be a good deal, why not make an offer? You get a set of uprated bumpers thrown in as well
This car has been well restored, but is not 100% original.

Cheers harit

Fiat 1100 for sale in Pune
http://pune.olx.in/fiat-vintage-iid-562251767

A beetle for sale in Kerala
http://kollam.olx.in/vintage-volkswa...-iid-561937546
Was not this the same beetle which was recently restored under ""budgetary constraints"' by a Bangalore restorer?
the reason for that seems clear now,because it was being restored just for sale purpose.

To top it 8.5 lacs for car that still needs complete restoration. India shining SAR, we are now a country of very rich and affluent people, and everyone and their mother have officially become professional speculators
