Great Buy. Congratulations. So finally you get a vintage with no headaches involved.

To satisfy the fiat fanatics, you may have to buy a palio though.

Looks as if the car was kept sealed in an airtight container from the date of its manufacture - after a great polish job of course!

Congratulations Steer!

Congrats steer, the car is very attractive. Now, I know how you have been suckered into spending a bomb for that Landy.

Dear Steeroid - that's a very well maintained beautiful car you have bought. As you have learnt the hard way, my advice to you is same. Please DO NOT send it to any garage. If you want any information, please PM me and I will guide you in totality. I request you to please see my BLL4919 (1988 Padmini), MRY3112 (1964 super select) and MH01YA3238 (previously KL05G7629 1996 left hand drive Padmini) restoration threads in this section. By the way, my fourth car MRF6466 is under restoration.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
