Great Arun! You managed to get in and take pics. So its a Mk 1 Amby, and a Morris Minor. From the gate, where I could get only a side view, the Amby looked like a Landmaster, and the Morris Minor looked like some Yank tank. What about that nice Select/Super Select parked in front of the house? Hope these two get restored!

Ah...yes, I just saw it, and came back here to edit my post. You guys are really courageous in your quest! All caretakers/watchmen I encountered in the past, and asked for permission to take pics of cars lying on their property give me some bull story, and turn me away. So I just pass on the info to more daring individuals like yourself, and its great to see that you captured some pics!

Superb, Ram - Superb !! And the original designer is the one and only Dante Giacosa - The man who also penned the Fiat 500 and the Fiat 1500 amid a huge portfolio he built in his Forty years with Fiat.

Today, while on the way to the office I saw a Vintage FIAT-1100 in Andheri (E) Police Station, seems it is standing in the police station for quite sometime there was dust and leaves of the trees all over the car.

The car was Black in color and it was in a decent shape, and quite restorable.

Didnt dare to take pics any information to whom the car belongs ?

Sorry, if i am going off topic here.
