My compliments on such a lovely looking car. I used to see this colour on a few 1980s Padminis in Pune growing up. That green faced speedometer is so nostalgic, and so hard to come by now. I appreciate that all model correct fittings are retained, and no extra unnecessary parts added. Do keep a look out for the all metal key, without the plastic cover. I think that Jay/Godrej units were available in older shops. Did your car original come without a side indicator? Is it indeed a 1978 or perhaps a 1975/76 I think

Please do share some pictures of the car before restoration as well?

Wow what a beautiful car, truly nostalgic. After a long I am seeing this colour. kudos for maintaining it this way.

Is the upholstery original colour, I understand it has been re-done some point of time.

@karlolsdeville: what would be the shade code / name?

This car was lying neglected for a long time and was bought back to life 10 years back. Unfortunately, this car is running a Maruthi engine, and interiors are fully modified.
