Came with the original manual too- also seems to have the original upholstery intact under the current seat covers.
Getting some mechanical work done then moving on to the cosmetics!
Stay tuned for updates, just don't hold your breath!
Nice car and number plate! - Which year is this car from ? My family had a Fiat Select (MEQ 1620), hence the curiosity

Thanks

Thanks! Registered on 22nd Jan 1973 is all it said in the old RC- exact manufacturing year was definitely before that so possibly end of '72.

The select would've been atleast a decade older than the President so yours would have been re-registered later (after moving from another state) with an MEQ series, definitely not an original number (Bangalore had only MYB series in the early 60s).

We have a Jan 1973 Premier President with the MEQ Series number plate which has done about 110,000 kms. Contemplating to sell it off as my Dad does not drive much these days. Any idea what might be a good price for these kind of cars to quote when trying to sell?
