Readers e-mail from Australia – part 1

This most recent e-mail from a reader of this website came from Australia – making it three e-mails from three continents. I’m thrilled already at the responses I’m getting from people about the little Fiat 1100. This e-mail came from quite a Fiat nut in Australia. This was the first part of our correspondence:

Readers Fiat 1100, Australia

I found your web site today and wanted to let you know I have several Fiat 1100s in Australia. From 1959 through to 1962 they were imported in knocked down condition and assembled in Sydney.

They were quite popular here but you never see them now. My earliest is a 1953 103 model and just recently I have purchased a 39,000 mile one owner 1962 model.

I have a very large quantity of new parts if you need help. I will be happy to send you details and photos of the cars if you wish.

I know of about 12 others in Australia.

      Hi, Sorry, cannot really help. your best possibility is to check out Indian websites, since a version of the 1100 was made there until quite recently. regards,Dermot.

    Hey there, absolutely thrilled to hear about your collection of 1100’s. My Father had an 1100d as his very first car, I am looking to find and restore one and give it to him as a gift, if you are able to advise me on where I might locate one of these beauties please don’t hesitate to contact me.
