Fiat Padmini

I was driving to work today morning and as usual was stuck in my favorite jam. And, awk! I saw a Fiat Padmini Premier beside me. Man, people still drive this thing? I remember sitting in my uncle’s Padmini some 20 years back! Its remarkable that this car has run for so long. Anyway, did some googling. Somebody wants to sell it. Somebody wants to buy it too!!

  1. Please dont under estimate Premier Padmini. What if its old? Its still better than Maruti 800 or any other 796cc car. padmini is still widly used (even after its production stopped in 1995) and that proves that it is a good car.

  2. Hey Man,
    I’ve got a Fiat Padmini Premier.Even Though its an old vehcile. It runs like a Jet. Thats why I’ve decided to modified it. Ihave chaged its bumperswith the huge ones, Hood, roofscoops and a sports type desingned paint and a vinyls. I adore fiat for its prformance

  3. i don’t have this car but i am really desperate to buy this car…. i simply love this car…. its moreover my girl friend……

    • i have a white premier padmini fiat std. and i want to sell. its white in color with single color steering gear and single hand driven 1995 model. I want to sell it because it will get rotten if not used.
      I also have premier padmini ne118 also if interested then do contact for price.

  4. I too own a fiat although my father wanted to sell the i have kept it and am planning to modify it . i am very happy to see so many PADMINI lovers and am happy not to be alone. i want to keep the identity of the padmini yet modify it because i love it.

  5. i have a fiat which is better than some of the newer cars. i have modified the car but retained some of the good features of fiat. i have changed interiors, fitted a AC, Power steering, MP3 Player. I maintain a minimum of 100 KMPH on highways. even in city i maintain a good speed without bothering about dents. Second look guaranteed.

  6. hai my father buyed a fiat modal 1979 modal i thik i aged to 35 years but it going in a smooth condition , but my father thinks it get him a prestige problem so that he want to sell it but i dont allow him , i planed 2 modify it extanal look by adding vinlys and extra if u had a fiat than contact me for more info

  7. Hi Evry Body,
    Me too having a Padmini 1988 car that I got from my elder brother( When he purchased new car) It runs great. I love this car. I am alos interested to modify it for more power & may be body & chassis reinforcement ( to extend its life & add strength to cope up bad roads here) Mr Prakash / Mande will you please guide me for necesary modification….

  8. Hey guys, I own a Prmier padmini model 1989, due to fuel price hikes, was willing to sell it and buy another small car, but a person in my neighbourhood suggested me not to sell it, but to convert it to LPG,so i just converted to LPG off course, RTO approved kit , but not approved from RTO, and i am going to use it now.As well as i am going to modify it for my daily use, my vehicle just requires a new paint ( a stylish one)

  9. Hello,
    I have a 1998, S1-Executive mode, White Padmini and still in excellent condition. It has run just 45,454 kms so far and still looks brand new. Even now when I take this out, the people turn their head and the pick up is as comparable to the new model cars. I also get 15 km/pl mileage and I prefer to drive this more than my ford ikon.
    But only thing is the rising petrol prices and this has what let down this beautiful car, but I still love this car and wont sell this in a lifetime…

  10. modelled in n195 n still running in india n a few third world countries…
    infact ppl who still drive it will say its no different frm the modern car.
    bad suspension at the rear n electricals are the major draw backs.
    still as fast or even faster than a maruti 800 or omni.
    good ac //fitting…
    did 80000 kms before the first rebor….
    still giving a good 11 kms after overhaul..
    what else does one need???

  11. Hi Kapil,
    I also own a Padmini 1992 model. I can still drive it at a good 115 kmph. Recently I started thinking of modifying it to the rally sport.
    Change interiors, gear box, alloy wheels and the stuff. I am from Pune. I donot know where u r from but if u r from but it would be great if u could send me some details as to how to go about this modification task.
    Thanks,
    Kaustubh

  12. dear Kapil…
    i have a 1992 white padmini which has run approx 45000 km.. its still going strong…it used to be driven by my father …now not in use. as am quite tall (6′ 2.5in) am not confortable while driving it…am intrested in modifying it…like the seats, say power steering…and so on…any inputs u can share….am from pune…

  13. Hey All,

    Glad to know that their are so many lover for the Premier Padmina alias Fiat. I recently laid my hand on a 1991 Premier Padmini of my relatives who wanted to sell it off. I intend to modify to the comfort as I love this car beacuse in spite of earlier poor maintanennce it still runs smooth. I drove 300 KM recently non stop and it gave me fantastic mileage and speed.

    Does anybody knwo about good mechanics in Hyderabad, who can help me getting my vehicle modified.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Vikram

  14. hi..all fiat padmini lovers,i was having 1979 model which gave me 11kmpl,but now i have replaced it with 1995 model with AC fittings,and you cant believe it gives 15kmpl.

  15. hi, I have been using premier padmini 1977 model, though its a very old car i had reparied totally with the body work done and a new engine fitted,and the suspension with electrical fitting too……it gives a great pleasure drive whenever i go on a drive…..I had bought that ar when i was in collage because i had to go on drives with my girlfriend and i was a student and din’t have much to spend at that time,so i took this PALPadmini……..i have loads of memories with it but touch wood it never stopped on way like even maruti does u know…….hassel free and a lovely car though old ut gives a pleasure than a new stuff…..

  16. The Fiat – Premier Padmini’s, President and BE’s are Petrol run. Is there any proud owner of 137D or any modified diesel engine run Fiat’s. Am planning to buy a diesel runone. Any one selling 137D 1996 model the one’s with Floor shift, Bucket seat and Sinchronised gear box?

  17. Hello all!!

    We are planning to buy a used out-dated Premier Padmini, or 118 NE car. Now I would like to know about how much will it cost to convert it into a car contains all the features of what nowadays cards does has (like Power Steering, Bucket seat, AC, CD Player etc). Please someone tell in details about these parts with price.

    And also please which Fiat used car is the best buy will be.

  18. I have read many good reviews of Premier Padmini on MouthShut and have researched it on CarWale and found it a better car than 800 at least! Despite of knowing that this car is dated and I can afford a far newer car, I am kind of inclined towards Padmini. Do you think it would be a wise decision to go for a Fiat Padmini at this time?

  19. Hi , it was really great to read the reviews about fiat padmini, feels even better if you own one .I have a Fiat padmini really old one ,it is a 1970 model. The car is real amazing to drive .It has a great pickup .,my car dosent average well though just 8 to 10 kmpl. Iove my fiat padmini.

  20. i own a 1988 premier padmini. i simply love this timeless beauty. i simply love her exhaust note. recently i have fitted an expansion chamber (straight through type) and boy! she is moving pretty good! and dont ask me about the exhaust note!

  21. I own a 1991 premier padmini well maintained but never got the engine overoiled the car does devlop a few squeek’s and tweeks due to my rough handelling over every few years and i get the suspension done and it is as good as new the car has served me well over 1,80,000. Km and travelled all over india in longest drive was of 2800 km at a single strech which i covered in 5 days and with ampel amount of rest in the night and even after all that long journey’s and drives on all terain conditions my car still gives me a good 14 Kmpl and guess what still touches a good speed of 110 kmph i wonder how it may perform once i get the engine done up I would say it is a wonderful car even with the king of simple technology it has in it. I love my CAR and will love it for ever.

  22. Hi all,

  29. Hello Everybody,

    I own a 1968 Fiat 1100. It was then that Premier Automobiles started using the current body shape on Fiat 1100. My car has original Italian engine. Has been with me since 1983. Once, it had been under flood waters for 2 months. After about 6 months, nothing of its seats and electricals was left. But using a spare battery, it cranked to life in second attempt itself.

    I really like this car. Though we have newer cars in our family, we still love our Fiat.But, sadly, it is in need of a full body overhaul. It is at present stationed at Ludhiana. If somebody could help me with a body kit of Premier Padmini, I would be highly obliged. If somebidy from Ludhiana here, do contact me at gunvinder@gmail.com. As I stay at Delhi, I know about Mayapuri and Chandni Chowk. But it will be difficult to shift a body kit from here to Ludhiana. Please help!

  30. hello everybody,
    once going to our farmhouse we had two cars one maruti gypsy king (driven by a famous car showroom owner of delhi), and other a fiat, we started together,i was in gypsy we stopped for 5-7 minutes for refuelling of gypsy, made fun of the fiat all the way, we were not sure weather the fiat will reach the destination some 50 kms without any technical snags leave alone reaching on time……but when we reached at the farmhouse we were surprised “the FIAT people were already there waiting for us ”
    salute to the makers of this great car

  34. I had purchased a 2nd hand Padmini Deluxe BE 1991 model in the year 2000. I paid Rs. 30,000/- and the first owner had by that time driven it for 21,250 kms. I am quite satisfied with its performance and wish to continue with this car. The only apprehension is the vailability of spares in future. Even now the available spares are not as durable as it used to be earlier.

  35. I forgot to add that my brother in law drives a Padmini too. 1989 model purchased second hand in the year 1995. Its also giving a great service.

  36. Hi, I own a 1992 Premier Padmini & love it sooo much. This vehicle is converted to LPG & is giving 300 Kms to 1 cylinder.

    FIAT stands for — Fit Item at All Times.

  40. dear fiat comrades,

    Premier padmini is with me since 1991(model 1989). I am enjoying it.

    I love long drive. to be frank it never gave any trouble in the highway.

    Even Some minor repairs happen, I found some mechanic work shop near by.

    I wonder! Thanks to designer. It is the ONLY ONE CAR, even though seems to be old,

    with running condition giving the pleasure of driving to the PROUD owners.

    Enjoy driving our favourite Premier Padmini!n- All the Best.

  49. Padmini / 118 NE, you will never like to be apart from it, once you have driven it.
    just change to radial tyre, bucket seats, bumper, face lift of exterior lights, BET there is no other car on the india roads to beat it.

  64. Hi, I am a married guy living with parents. I live in a locality where there is no plying of City autos and the suburb autos refuse to take us into city. Hence I have decided to go for a car for the sake of family. There are lots of 800s and Omnis but the one I have circled is a Fiat Padmini which is not only lot more comfortable and practical than the others but good value too. Anybody, please, if you have a working condition Padmini contact me @ +919985872789, I live in Hyderabad’s Langarhouse area. I hope my good-intentional plea will not go unheard. My budget is 10,000 Rs. I know its peanuts for a car. But it is the amount that I can spent. It is my 1 month’s pay.

    Thanks
    Mujahed

  65. Hey Sidharth,

    My 137 D is running very well, but the window glass moving up and down in one window is very difficult even after changing a new gear unit. Can any one suggest me what next I can do to make a smooth operation of window glass.( The problem lies on front left window). If any one have any drawing of the wire rope fixing please forward.

    Thank you Fiat Premier Padmini enthusiasts.

  67. I need some advice on a fiat 1968 I recently bought. About the history of the model and the mechanics. I will be happy to chat with a like minded fiat fan and exchange notes. I live in mumbai but location is not really problem. There are a lot of old spares available here in Mumbai and expect a lot more to come into the market if taxis older than 25 years are not allowed to ply. Is there anything I should look for?
    my mail is bullet2555@yahoo.co.uk.

  68. Dear Asokan,

    Thanks for you advice.
    I am happy to say that you have come so far into your project, and would also like to add that I have managed to complete my restoration work on Diwali.

    The car is back home with new paint job, new light all around, bought seats from the Kurla market in mumbai. Though seats are used they still look brand new.
    You should visit Kurla market (chor bazaar) if you are looking for parts. Maybe someone you know who stays in Mumbai can help.

    I have posted pictures of my car on my Orkut profile.
    http://www.orkut.co.in/Main#Profile.aspx?uid=15801447298175133885

    search for “Manish Vyas Ulhasnagar” in case the link dosnt work.

    I have also created a Community on Orkut called “Premier Padmini Enthusiasts”. This community is for like minded people who own a Padmini.

    I would like to request all users here to join the community and share your knowledge and comments and experiences.

    Good luck.

  69. Hello Suri,

    You should try and join Team-PHB website. You will find a lot of automotive enthusiasts from across India.

  70. HI
    I AM FIAT LOVER TOO. I HAVE A PADMINI 1987, IN GOOD CONDITION, THIS CAR HAD BOUGHT GOOD LUCK FOR ME, SO I WANT UPGRADE THIS CAR AND KEEP IT WITH ME. I AM LOOKING FOR A GOOD DIESEL ENGINE FROM EITHER DIHATSU OR TOYOTA WHICH ARE USED AND CAN GIVE GOOD PERFORMANCE. ANY ONE THERE WHO CAN HELP ME TO IMPORT THIS ENGINE?

  71. From my experience, I understand that only Ambassador, Fiat padmini and Mahindra jeep are the vehicles for one opts for the life time. No present car can stand this long run.
    I appeal the new generation companies why you remake the old fiat padmini in a new style by preserving the original shape?
    My 137D is on the 17 th year, still giving 20-22kmpl diesel.

  72. Dear Friends,

    I am very glad to see all the above mentioned comments and experiences of various Fiat lovers. I have an old car FIAT – Premier Padmini of 1987 – Oct model, in very good condition. It gave me 15 k.ms / ltr Petrol. I dont like to dispose it, because I love this car which is very much comfortable and better than Maruthi omni and Maruthi 800. I am not using this for the past one and half years. I have a great desire to convert it to LPG Gas, but very difficult to get permission from RTA now a days. They will give permission to fix LPG only for the vehicles after 1992 model onwards. I am struggling what to do ? I appreciate some good suggestions. I am living in Secunderabad.

  74. Dear friends,

    Thank you very much for your feed backs through private mails. My car’s job is 100% completed and last week I’ve driven the car from my native to Chennai( which is 600 Kms) and I felt like in heaven. The car was so well responded and I had a stop over after 350 kms, there was absolutely no problem and even it overtakes some the new generation cars, specially one ALTO was trying us for nearly 100km stretch, but finally they gave up. I am really proud of having such a wonderful car. Thanks to the mechanics who attended the full maintenance.

    I have one question, what is the tyre pressure to be maintained for Radial tyres of 137D? Please let me know.( I’m maintaining 26PSI, is it OK?)

  79. Hey guys

    I still drive my dad’s fiat padmini (1985). Its just great. My mom suggested to give the car to maruti for exchange and buy an alto. I will never do that mistake. my mom will buy the alto but the fiat stays. the fiat company may have stopped but its legacy will continue forever. if fiat replicates this model i think the sales will beat all other car models.

    My Dad is a proud owner of a 1984 Model Premier Padmini, serviced and maintained by me. While it was very easy to get good mechanics and spare parts in Mumbai, its equally difficullt for me to get an informed mechanic and spare parts in Delhi.

  84. Hi !
    I am a great fan of Premier Padmini. I bought my first car 1981 model and had it for a couple of yeras. Replaced it with another Padmini of 1988 model and disposed it off.
    Now I am looking for getting one again and I am in Chennai.

    Riding a fiat is just like flying. I can use my thumb effortlessly to control the steering wheel which is not possible with MArutis / Indicas and the so called power steering driven vehicles.

  86. Premier Padmini 137D runs like a jet. My car was my dad’s favourite and now its
    has become my favourite. My 1995 Padmini was under a hut for 8 years in my hometown Darbhanga, Bihar. I got it in Delhi by the Maruti Car carrier truck.
    And still It gets ignited in a single self.

    Is it possible to get an Ac fitted in the car?
    This is question for Diesel Fiat owners.

  87. Can anyone suggest from where I can get the engine changed. My father owns a 88 padmini. since v ‘v decided not to sell it, I want to modify it. want to put a more efficient engine, for the existing engine is beyond service/repairs now. Plz help guys.

  88. Hi to all fellow Premier Padmini owners.

    I own a 1996 Premier Padmini S1 model and require the self starter assembly for the car. This is the first time in 12 years a spare part has been hard to find and thats a worrying thought for me.

    Specifically I am based in Hyderabad and if someone can suggest a spare part dealer / shop / outlet in Hyderabad or Chennai, that would be most helpful.

    Look forward to some help from you guys out there.

  89. I OWN A 1973 MODEL PREMIER PADMINI CAR. AS I WANT TO KEEP IT ,I REQUEST OTHER FIAT CAR OWNERS FOR SOME INFORMATIONS TO SOLVE SOME PROBLEM FACING PRESENTLY.

    1.IT IS WATER COOLED. ALTHOUGH COMPRESSON IS GOOD ,ENGINE GETS OVERHEATED AFTER RUNNING SOME TIME IN SUMMER. IS THERE ANY WAY OUT TO KEEP THE ENGINE COOLED.A MECHANIC HAS ADVISED ME TO POUR COOLENT WITH DISTELED WATER IN RADIATOR WITHOUT ANY MODIFICATION. I FEAR TO DO IT.

    2.BREAKING SYSTEM IN WHEEL IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHANGE IT TO ALLOY WHEEL FITTED WITH NEW BREAKING SYSTEM.

    3.IS THERE ANY NEW ENGINE TO BE FITTED IN MY CAR. IF POSSIBLE,LET ME KNOW COST,DETAILS OF ENGINE.
    4. SPARK PLUGS ARE GETTING DRY BLACK.

    klynsinha@yahoo.co.in

  90. @K kisna,
    your overheating problem lies in a very rich mixture. try to tune the engine by a good mechanic.

    you can use coolant in the radiator but u’ll need to fit an extra reservoir.

    change ALL cylinders in the braking circuit. check brake liners and shoes.change them if necessary.

    you can go for the alloys.

    Go for a newer S1 engine.donot change your gearbox. in Mumbai you’ll get a S1 engine in 15000 bucks.

    cheers!

  105. i.m looking at good car driver &i drive any car in delli n c r i need a job plees cntect meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  106. I own a 1968 delight and trying to get it registered in Mumbai. The RTO wants an invoice that shows the car value to arrive at the road tax payable. Does anyone have an invoice for an old fiat – It has to be of Mumbai dealer and can be of any fiat model between 1968-1978. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Am also looking to buy another fiat – the older the better. Its an original machine at heart – no electronics – wow.

    best
    suri

  107. The RTO rules is old and needs to be changed. Today an individual is changing their residence frequently to due to transfer/better opportunities. One India but different rules. Or at least the govt can make a rule who wants to pay a central tax so that their vehicle can be moved freely. I am facing the same problem for reregistering in Karnataka RTO. They wanted original invoice! Beautiful country, fantastic rules. Those who want to pay tax, govt doesn’t want. Change old outdated rules.

  108. hai all, (especially Mr.Ashokan)

  112. Hi Fiat folks,

    Its great to see the endless names list of Fiat lovers, I am glad to be a part of this lovely community.

    There is no doubt that Fiat aka Premier Padminis’ are performers, the greatet secret of this car is SIMPLYCITY simple mechanism, Quality. The car can easily out beat any other car in its class/calibration of todays generation.

    These cars are preferred as classic collection, modificators choice, even these cars were used for rallying in India by our veterans. They look awesome.

    Its simple car with loads of logic and magic………

    FIAT IS THE BEST. FIAT IS THE BEST.FIAT IS THE BEST.FIAT IS THE BEST.FIAT IS THE BEST.FIAT IS THE BEST.FIAT IS THE BEST.FIAT IS THE BEST.FIAT IS THE BEST.

  113. Mr Uttam

    Thanks for showing intrest in Padmini. Its not hard/difficult to find one for yourself in Hyderabad there are tens of cars for you in fact the sad thing is they are now getting scrapped in the markets (which I hate). You can keep an eye at the scrap market at AFZAL GUNJ, check with people there. Unfortunately even neat cars are also landing up there. Check with people out there. A fairly neat car should not cost you more than 14-15k at the market.

    Do post your e-mail ID or phone number in this fourm, I am sure people out there are ready to help including me.

    A L L T H E V E R Y B E S T! May god bless you with a good FIAT aka PADMINI.

  114. Hi Asokan,
    This is Senthil,I am looking for Fiat,Please suggest me Petrol /Diesel version which one can i buy.
    Regards
    Senthil

  115. Hi Senthil,

    Which part of India(Tamilnad) you are living now. In my opinion Diesel version 137D is best that too if you get a floor shift gear model it is very good,but getting a good diesel one is bit difficult now a days.
    Wish you good luck.

    Regards
    Asokan

  116. Hi Mr.Vickram,

    I agree with you that there are some good cars are getting scrapped in Chennai too, and when ever I see a car getting broken in the yard, I felt a lot pain.

    By the way, you mentioned a good car is 14k-15k!!, it seems very cheap over there, here in Tamilnadu it costs 30 to 35K.

    Regards
    Asokan

All fittings are Aluminium, original Dials, logo etc I am planning to give her a through restoration and just enjoy her for my lifetime.

  144. Hi guys,

    I am from chennai and i purchased a 1998 floor geared fiat padmini diesel for 55000. The engine is excellent just some tinkering and painting needs to be done… it gives me a mileage of incity 22 and highways 25.. first i was hesitant to buy it but now i feel like a king when driving the car… its awesome… now im pretty confident to modify the car.. like alloy wheels with big radial tyres, black painting with nicale coating, dvd system with woofers… what i slight feel uncomfortable is the brakes.. it is actually oil brakes which we have to pump to stop it.. the question is whether we can upgrade it to power brakes and also can we upgrade power stearing etc? please throw some light on my questions..

    im in my 26 and always dreamy of driving a vintage car.. 🙂
