Lot 205: Fiat 1100/103 Berlina
The Fiat 1100, full of charm and personality, also had some notable success in racing and rallying and to this day many are used for historic competition.
Another interesting proof of the popularity, not to mention the robust qualities of this model is its success in India, where it was built under licence from 1964 until 2000 as the Premier Padmini, making it for decades, together with the Hindustan Ambassador, amongst the most popular models on the Indian subcontinent. Even today, fleets of the Premier Padmini are being used as Taxis in the big cities.
This delightful example, from the first series of production, comes from a small private collection and underwent a comprehensive restoration in 1999. As with many car models, the early ones are the most sought after and collectable and this little gem is no exception.
Finished in black with a black cloth interior, this delightful little saloon leaves nothing to be desired.
