Has there any restaration been made up to now? How many previous owners does the Panda have?
Only one previous owner and no, no restoration yet...
Thank you

One owner just like my Panda 34 but it's currently undergoing a little restauration

Do you have some interior pictures?

By the way. Is this Panda 30 also "Made in Spain" like my 34?

Gonna take some interior photos shortly, i don't use that car a lot, especially in Winter, here it's very cold and snowy, not like in London... I just use the Panda College when it's sunny and warm.

Oh no, the Panda 30 was just made and sold in Italy, the aircooled engine was the one of the 126.
The Panda 34 was an export model only, not for the Italian market; at that time we just had the 30, the 45 and the 4x4. They tried to sell the 30 in Switzeland, Netherlands and Germany but that kind of aircooled engine was very throbbing for the Swiss, Dutch and German laws so Fiat replaced the 30 with the 34 (watercooled engine, the same of the Fiat 850, only for those markets).
In the UK Fiat exported the Panda 45 only (then the 45 S and after the 45 CL as well) but not the 30 nor the 34, maybe because of the right hand driving system, don't know for sure...

Same applies for me in Germany there is each winter a lot of salt on the roads which has killed almost all of the old Pandas

Here you have the difference (maybe you forgot I've lived in London, where the temperature in Winter is normally about +14 and here between Milano and Switzerland is normally about -7)

Re: My 1985 Panda College

Your panda college looks in really lovely condition inside and out, never seen one before, nice to see an early Panda being cherished.

Ciao Ciao
I was definitely wrong: The Vip edition was mink brown / dark brown too :-)
