1956 Fiat 1100 103 E Before & After

karlosdeville’s Team-BHP Garage
1956 Fiat 1100 103 E Before & After
Engine Specifications:
  • 4 cyl 1089cc OHV
Fuel & Tuning:
  • Petrol. Soon trying out a Weber/Delloroto carb.
  • In pieces. Makes a real racket!
Suspension, wheels & tires:
  • 5.20 14 JKTyre
  • Filthy! Used as a store room for 7 years.
  • Rotten and ratty, it looks much worse then it actually is. I use it purely to scandalise people, and drive through narrow crowded lanes with no fears of getting a scratch.
EDIT - With a heavy heart, I have had to let her go. The plus side is she's gone to a great home, and remains in the forum community.

EDIT 2 - Couldnt resist uploading present day pics. What a transformation!

kunaalsaigal Hi Karl

That is one of the most beautiful Fiat 1100's I have seen.

I have been desperately trying to get my hands on one, have landed up making friends with a lot of owners in the process.

Its been ages since I got behind the wheels of a Fiat.

Please let me know if anyone knows it a 1952 - 1957 Fiat 1100 is up for sale in or around Mumbai.
