Nice pics.! That '55 fiat looks mint, barring a few non-original fittings on it.

Well, this car doesn't feature here but I didn't want to start another thread for this.
Lovely too! Just the kind of car (same colour too) I'm looking for, as a daily driver!

I see Mr Reddys cars every day, and OMG what detailing he does to all his cars.

I dont think so, Rudra sir went behind his garage, there are whole lot of interesting cars lying.

I have anyways posted these pics before on T-BHP but what amazing photography by Rudra..Wow

Out of curiosity how much is he expecting for the car? Condition really looks superb, hats off. Pity about the modified mudguards and dash though.

Lovely looking car, I too have been looking for one, but in original 'tomato' red. Do tell him to fit the original chrome centre caps, it will make a world of difference in the car's appearence.

Nice to see that ultra rare reflector-less taillight in the back. I assume it is his gold and maroon Fiat.

Just had a chat with him. He has lots of spares to give with this car. Including two white wall tyres (probably new).

Anybody is interested can contact him straight. Asking price is 150000/-. His number is +919880138693.

Yes, told him the same. He's still trying to get those.

When we are discussing about this car, I remembered a shop in Pudupet, Chennai had the front grill and few more Fiat items hanging. This is the picture I took around 4 months back.

See the chevvy wheel cups too.

Its a ridiculous mockery of the grille.

What a car!!! But, those new-gen chrome alloys really spoil looks of such exquisite vintage beauty.

Default Jayram's Fiat

well as karl enquired, those tail lamps on the golden and maroon select are the originals. The car is original on the inside too (intact with all the pull buttons and toggle switches), not sure of the engine though.

By the way did any one notice there are no fuel filler caps on the Fiat's,not even the lid.

Cheers

Manish

Bumping into a old thread!

Jaggu and Rudra: If you really like such old cars, then how come you have not attended any of FCB's meets?
