I've am pursuing the purchase of a Fiat 1100, it's described as a Fiat 1100d 1954

Worryingly it has an 'A' number plate suffix and the log book states is was made in 1961 and that it was registered in the UK in 1971. None of the dates marry up but it looks like the mid 50's model and the buyer says that 'experts' have told him it's a 1954 or 1956.

It is right hand drive and has suicide doors if that helps.

The Chassis number is 533313
The Engine number is 559889

Is there a register somewhere that I can check these numbers against?

Thanks in advance.

Fiat 1100/103D 533313 comes almost certainly from late 1958 or sometime into 1959.

The whole 103D series was described by A.T. Anselmi in his Catalogo Bolaffi delle Fiat (based on a large amount of material from Fiat) as dating from 1957 to 1960 with chassis numbers ranging from #372001 to #748000.

In my registry, I can give two references as being almost "close" to the car you are looking at.

The 1100D with chassis 474428 and engine 499722 was given a Certificato d'Origine on 28 July 1958 and was first sold 1 August 1958. It sold for lira 1.214.000

Stanguellini Formula Juniors of 1959 were using engines numbered earlier and later than your subject car's engine.

As a bit of entertainment, you might enjoy knowing that a 1960 parts book reports that the rear leaf springs were changed after chassis 533339. Earlier cars had "three clips" on the springs and cars from 533340 had two clips. Something for the concours judges to check?
