All okay, barring some alignment issues and at a very good price. Good Pontons are certainly rare in India. A must buy Though I would still bargain.

The pics seem to have been shot at some V&C Rally. Note the immaculate black Millecento besides it.

The location of the car seems to be in some neighboring locality to Chandigarh.

This is the age old problem rearing its head again. When somebody asks a ridiculous price for a Vintage we all laugh at it and call it greed, daydreaming etc. When somebody tries to price something reasonably then we all shout aloud...dicey, something fishy etc

Its a 1970 Fiat Gamine Vignale, also known as the Noddy car (after the lovable fictional character created by Enid Blyton). That said, the car in the picture hardly has anything original/period.

But the car is quite rare isn't it? Around 300 units built.

Cheers!

"I want to sell my modified vintage car petrol engine"
Guys please the adv carefully and not on the pictures posted alone. The person had mentioned "MODIFIED". I wonder where a modified car is missing original/period parts or becomes rare. This car seems to be made out of a Premier Padmaini.

For the sake of banter, "I want to sell my modified vintage car" can be interpreted in 2 ways. First, it could mean a vintage car has been modified with modern accouterments. Modified the adjective, "vintage car" the noun. The second is that a modern car has been modified to look like a vintage. "Modified (to) vintage" the adjective, car the noun.

Looks like I interpreted it the first way, you probably did the second. Open to more banter.

For 3.5 Lacs? That would've been a real good deal, at the original condition at that time, with the original interiors. Can't understand why the buyer would change the steering wheel to the current one, which looks just pathetic. Thanks for sharing the pics! It looks very good in those pics!

I don't know if this was already posted in this thread but the olx ad shows published date as today. But I strongly feel I've seen this car(or maybe a similar one) advertised for sale earlier.

But do see the vehicle pictures posted. the car seems to be a premier padmini. The wheels, steering and other components are different, even the body of the vehicle is fabricated or made. All i am trying to say is anyone interested in this vehicle does not get fooled into believing it is a vintage car with fiat or modified parts.

It was not original even then,the engine was diesel and the Hoodliner,rear tail lamps etc were modified .The former owner had bought the car a few months earlier(in 2010) from Tamilnadu for 2.7 lakhs.he is sort of a part time car dealer.

Man, you seem to know the entire history of the car! That's just awesome. Had the price been somewhere near those earlier figures, I'd surely have given it a serious thought. Thanks for sharing the details.

A Wolseley 1934 (car no 310-15630) for sale in Assam,
the write-up mentions some interesting History.

Several discrepancies.

If the car is 1934 built, how could it come to our far off country in 1928 of all things?

And if the seller claims that the car has won many so called titles in rallies , HOW COME THE CAR IS NOT IN CONCOURS CONDITION?

And lastly, are there any "FAMED" rallies taking place in Guwahati?

Also, the STD Number given in the advertisement seems that it is of Bangalore, NOT Guwahati.

Also, the owner claims that the car was made for the Queen of Birmingham. An extremely tall claim, because,

I DOUBT whether any royalty existed in Birmingham, in the 1930s. The royalty would rather prefer to be seen in a Rolls-Royce, wont they?


Cheers!
