My Jamshedpur quest got me some surprised responses & I was sent these pics by a potential TBHPian. I am awaiting contact details of owner to speak to him:

Can Fiat gurus confirm about the authenticity of this one?

The car above appears to be a select. Therefore, the grille is not original but from a later model. the logo and patti on the bonnet is original. the bumpers are original. Two original wheels. And one original Headlight ring.

Twin Fiat logos [one on the bonnet (original Select) and the other on the grille (SS) ] helps identify such Selects with the SS grille.

A common mod done on selects- I've seen quite a few without the hinges, maybe in some cases the whole bootlid itself was replaced with that of a later model.

I picked up the Clipper from the same person.

...and a place called Jhumri Talaiya does exist.

Mr.Ved Prakash has unearthed a few more cars and he has also bought them and plans to restore them. I am uploading a photograph of Mr.Ved and also some of his new discoveries ......

Apart from the meters nothing seem to be intact on those willys. Has he bought all the visible cars. He must be one brave person to pick up these condition cars which many of us would term as gone case. BTW what model car is the last one( brick storage one).

I picked the BLUE millicento (Post 3249 / Page 217) Attached below are engine bay & interior pics. I just hope I have NOT made any mistake here.
*Now I'll need all the possible help/guidelines from Fiat gurus here.

Sonu Good luck with the resto buddy, that will be a sweet little car.

Most of the stuff looks original on the car. a good clean & some elbow grease & a bit more will do the trick.

Hopefully you didn't pay too much for it as it will cost you a fair few quid to bring it back to its former glory.

And Cyrus i think you are right. That is an Amby now used as a brick storage cupboard.

The first thing you need to do is get her cleaned her thoroughly. Get her serviced, and get the engine up and running. There is no point in doing a cosmetic restoration when the engine is a gonner.
