Recently at the Auto Expo there was a superb display of old photos, documents, ads and other automobilia from the collection of Farhan Kidwai and Sandeep Katari. They dated from the early 1900s onwards, and were a treat to see.

Here is a selection of some later India specifics, my favorites.

Again thanks so very much for all these Fiat & Padmani brochures and adverts that you have posted. How long have you been collecting them?

Hopefully the Paint Colour Cards of the various standard colours offered can be posted as well. This would be an invaluable reference for those wanting to keep to the original colours.

Was there much of a change on colours over the years and was the two-tone colours a factory option, and if so, what choices were offered.

Can you find out if the cars are still available for sale? I'm particularly interested in the vehicle of the inset picture, the FJ55 (5 door wagon). Please let me know.

But I've never seen or heard of any example, surviving or otherwise, anywhere. Anyone who knows of a 1400 currently existing?
