Panda Sisley 4x4 - Queries?

Hello everyone!

I've just joined this forum and was hoping some kind sole out there could help answer the questions below regarding the Panda Sisley 4x4.

Some of you may have noticed the grey Sisley on Ebay at the moment, if not, go have a look and see what you think.
I must admit, I'm interested in it myself but I have some concerns as to its authenticity.

My questions are as follows:

1. There is no raised bonnet grille, should it have one?

2. There is a photo of the dash instrument dials and they appear to be the same as a standard Panda [didn't the Sisley have different dials? [do you think this one on ebay has had a new speedo unit at some time, hence the standard dial & possibly the low milage?]

3. Looking at the interior pictures, there dosen't seem to be an instruction plate for the 4x4 controls, did they all come with this plate attached to the floor carpet, near to the gear stick?

Thank you all!

Re: Panda Sisley 4x4 - Queries?

Mine is a 1991

1. My sisley got raised colour coded bonnet scoop. I have seen numerous others sisleys with same scoop

2. My dials got canoe on https://www.fiatforum.com/gallery/da...m/PIC00084.JPG

3. Mine got instruction plate

Looks sisley enough to me. Just minus a few bits

Re: Panda Sisley 4x4 - Queries?

It cannot be a Sisely ... as you suspect my friend.
It must have a floor-plate, a speedo with a canoe and laural leaves on and ...
... well, so much else is wrong !

It may be a MK1 Sisley.

2. There is a photo of the dash instrument dials and they appear to be the same as a standard Panda [didn't the Sisley have different dials? [do you think this one on ebay has had a new speedo unit at some time, hence the standard dial & possibly the low milage?
My Sisley (Jun./1988) is like this too.

Other diferences is the seat belts they don't have write on it Sisley 4x4.

Re: Panda Sisley 4x4 - Queries?

Thanks for all your comments - very interesting. Doesn't seem to be a definitive answer though.
I was thinking along the same lines as gaz_wrexham: Doesn't It have to many Sisley parts to be a fake?
All the seats are Sisley, also, Sisley plastic trim along the sides of the bodywork. Maybe the UK 1988 model was lacking the Sisley dials & seat belts of later models?
Anybody in the UK own a 1988 Sisley?

Yes my friend I own five sisley's 2 mark I and 3 mark II . It looks legit to me and with only 34k on the clock should fetch good money on ebay dont worry I'm not bidding on it.

Dragging this up sorry

So there is nothing to worry about with my Sisley not having the Sisley seatbelts, or instruction plate?

As Bert says, It is most likely to be one of the earlier Sisley's.
