Hi Karl and other FIATians. Below is the message posted by Jony on FCB's FB page. Kindly suggest him.

Admin, Please post this for get Ideas from FIAT owners/Classic lovers.

Dear All, I need your comments and suggestions for my restoration project.

I have FIAT 1100 D - 1957 in Sri Lanka. I'm 26 tears old and fall in love with Classic cars recently. I bought it Nov 2013 from 1st owner. And he maintained it very well with original condition. Up to now, original paint, everything is their, spare key also, original seats with 57 years. She is really old now and she needs some medicine as I Gus. Hear I attached some pictures for current situation, and I want to keep it as original condition. If so I read so many 1100 Indian restorations projects and got and real idea, also I have Questions to ask from u guys. Is that rear light cups are original..? And tire shape..? Also want to know about White wall tires/walls..? Brake system upgrade..? Also I hope to repaint with same original color, what do you think about it..? What interior can do for more..? What parts should chrome paint and what about all stainless steel parts and how is the condition as u seen. What I need to do..? need to do more Insulation process (It will heat inside the car, when it runs)

Hope to start my project Feb 2014 - Floor board have to be re-fix, door rubber, rear suspension ( when i drive on hamper tire will touch wheel-arc.

Waiting for your advices/comments all are welcome to advice me.

Thank you Old metal piece lovers..

Have a Nice drive...

Today at the event organized by Bangalore Vintage Group saw the same Fiat restored, some engine bay componets were replaced for the sake of functionality. Else the car retains all original stuff.

A Fiat Select found in a garage. Unless it is shown some TLC, it's a goner.

Hello Sir.
It is indeed available for purchase, but I don't think the garage owner is serious about selling the car. Heck, I don't think he even knows who the actual owner is! Its been lying with him since a very long time. I too am on the lookout for an old Fiat, that's how I stumbled across this car. Upon enquiring, I was quoted Rs.2lakhs for the car, to be taken away as seen!

Hi, I think this is a very very original car baring a few things like seats that too upholstery it is largely intact everything is there. It is worth paying 2 lakhs or thereabouts for this car as there is no sense in buying a junked fiat and then spending lakhs of Rupees sourcing parts. If this car was in Maharashtra I would have bought it immediately. Gone are the days where you can buy fiats for 50 or 100K Good cars even 5 yrs ago we paid 1.5 - 2lakhs

Ok. It looks like a fair few are genuinely interested in the Select.

As Amrth mentioned, the car is indeed at Mysore, Karnataka.

As 'the mole' pointed it out, the car is quite original considering it's age. The photos I uploaded were specifically meant to convey this. All the bits and pieces are intact. But I have no idea about the engine, transmission, and other mechanicals. By his own admission the garage owner said that it's been quite a while since the car was left there. But he did also say that if you plonk in a battery, it starts and runs fine.

I have no idea about the documents of the said vehicle and I suspect neither does the garage owner.

I'd be happy to gather any additional information, if needed. Please PM me with specific questions and I promise I'll make an effort to find out the details.

Its at Yesgeor Garage, Chamarajapuram, Mysore. Unfortunately, there is no board or other such identification signs put up. Its more of a house parking extension than a proper 'garage'. Even when on that road its quite easy to miss the spot.
Do pm me when you are in Mysore. In case I'm free I'll accompany you to the garage.

Hope this map location helps.

Dear Ajit Kanbur / Dr.Kannan - one of you please pick up the Mysore car. It is the twin of my BMC8903. If you can get it to Mumbai, I'll be delighted to help you to restore it to glory.

Best regards,

Saw this "Millicento" in pristine condition in South India during my last trip and seriously messed up my phone (hence not many pics to do it full justice).
