Default Any Fiat 124 Spiders in India?

I've restored two prior to coming to India and really like (and know) these cars. Was wondering if these ever made it to India...

I remember seeing a X1/9 in Blore a long time ago. My cousin has a 1200 Spider to which he had a 124 twincam fitted and he used to race.

We have one neat car in Bombay, which is a regular at Pune events as well.



An X1/9 was recently spotted here

This 124 sport coupe was up for sale a few months back. I believe it was in Kerela, am not sure of its current whereabouts.

There is one convertible owned by Mr. Sunil Sahai of Bilari, near Moradabad in U.P. He regularly drives down a couple of times every year for the events at Delhi.

This Spyder was also on display at the Auto Expo 208 at the HMCI pavilion.

Saw this and a silver x1/9 both together in 2000. It needed a lot of work and judging by the wiper pattern, is a LHD converted to RHD. It was in a dark shed so cannovouch for condition

I think the same car was in Pune for a while. It had a newer KA regn, and a Gypsy engine. It wasnt a 124 though, it was an earlier 1100 or 1200.
