I have a 1968 model Fiat 1100 D. This car has an original Italian Fiat engine. This engine was used by Ferrari to power some of its earlier cars.
The car that I have with me has the modern body shape, the one that you all are familiar with as Premier Padmini. My car has been through a lot of trouble time and again. Like, once it was submerged in flood water for nearly 15 days. All its electricals, seats, body panels, etc were damaged.
But, once I fired the engine using a used battery and fed it petrol from a plastic can (its fuel tank leaked), it got to a thunderous start in just 2nd attempt.
I have time and again invested heavily in keeping it in good health, but of late I could not pay attention to it due to lack of time.
And time has palyed havoc with its body work.
I need some help. If somebody could provide me with a Premier Padmini body shell in good shape, I will be highly obliged.

Gunvinder the best place for you to look for a bodyshell for your car would either be Mayapuri or Meerut. There you can find some very decent second-hand body shells.
