Fair enough Manikjeet, but still qualifies as 'rusting' until you do get started with the restoration

In fact these kind of tub or truck is found very rare, this truck look very similar to that of US spec, I guess this truck must be an early version of the FC, this is because the later models did not have the logo next to the door handle. I wish I could own it, by any chance is it for sale Anjan sir.

Quite a number of these vehicles are available in and around Coimbatore/Pollachi and Madurai. If anybody requires I can source one or two for them.

Well, i know this car very well,its on a side road ,just off the main 7 tombs road, its neither entangled in family or any other complications. Its just that its time has not come BUT it will be a herculean task to put it together.

If it is for sale at a reasonable price I am ready to take it and restore it, I learnt to drive on one of these cars so there is a tremendous nostalgic reason for me to be interested. Anybody who can get the details of price etc??? Pls contact me on 09344833274
Thanks

This car is owned by a friend of mine. The car is in Nagpur and from what he has told me, it's a Fiat 2100.

It looka like a Fiat 2300 to me more than a 2100. 2100 never had twin lamps Afaik. Btw where is this car located. Also there is one brown fiat 147 in good condition lying at a garage near Ghat Road, Nagpur.

He said it was a 2100 and I took it for that. It makes sense that this might be a 2300. It has the original engine and everything as is I believe. Its located at his own garage. I'm not sure if he's going to restore it.
