Hi Cyrus......your cars are both awesome! Your 1100 seems to be a Super select (with quarterglass), but seems to have been fitted with an older select grille......? although I'm unable to view the full images due to my net problem!
If so, maybe you could get the correct grille from Karl who has a super select grille fitted to his select!
Also I could help you find an original speedo & if you want the 'FIAT 1100' bootlid badge I have one at home.
