  • Then came the Fiat 1100 Elegant from 1956 till 1957 with the center light grill.
  • In 1958 came the Fiat 1100 Select and in 1962 came the Fiat 1100 Super Select with a different grill and quarter glass.
  • From 1965 to 1972 came the Fiat 1100 Delight(Same shape as Padmini).
  • For little over a year came the Premier President in 1973.
