From my memory, i think they looked something like this.
@JayD, Is it perhaps possible, that you were thinking of this symmetric wing logo?

By convention, a symmetric wings badge would be located along this axis at the locations mentioned, and not on one or either sides.

Do tell us where this badge was mounted.
Ram Im positive I have seen these badges fitted to the boot in a position similar to the boot badge on dukkar Fiats. I have also heard of them being on the sides (fenders) as well.

Just a few minutes ago i checked with a senior Hindusthan enthusiast .He confirms that there were 2 types of badges OHV60 and OHV with the assymetrical bar wings on both sides Theses were not factory ORIGINALS but after market accessories.
Also another info, the bumpers of 60,61,62 Mark1's were more squarish compared to the earlier ones.
Never seen an OHV60 badge. You are right about the bumpers. For the earliest ones they shared the Landmaster profile, more visible in the bumper guard fitting. It had a pointed "C" profile, while the later ones had a "D" profile, more squared off.

The second car looks more like a Model A Ford rather than a Fiat.

I know exactly what you mean. I have seen that OHV logo. Only i think that the wings were on one side of the letter V in the badge/monogram. Will try and get pics. I also saw this on some Mark-I ambis besides the late model Landmasters.

Reproduced below a para from this link Google Image Result for http://www.cybersteering.com/contest/test29.jpg

...."Succeeding the Hindusthan 14, it had more passenger room, more luggage space and a new BMC (Austin designed) 1489 cc "B-series" engine that developed a decent 50 bhp @4200 rpm and 78 lb ft of torque @ 2400 rpm. The advertisements of the time made a big deal of the new "Over Head Valve" OHV engine. There was a chrome badge consisting of the letters OHV in capitals with "wings" attached to the letter...." "V".

Nice pics. Cy! The first car is a Plymouth convertible I presume?

And wow, another 'pEshal' fiat!! Gogi bhai, youve got company!

Btw, I somehow feel Ive seen a pic. of this car in another thread in this forum somewhere (I think in gogi's htread bout restoring his special?) The number sure rings a bell. Only that car was red with a black roof.
Anyways, this car should be restorable. 'hope someone over here is interested?!

Thats one of the least original cars Ive seen in a long time. Been standing on the footpath for years together.

While it does appear to be a genuine special, all the trims and bumpers are local (of the thicker Italian design). About the only thing original are the front guards, they too are in bad shape with rubber missing. The front grille is from a Padmini and cut in half to be fitted in this pattern.

That aluminium trim on the dash you admire so much is from a taxi and stainless steel, they are available by the dozen. The steering wheel and meter too are from a Padmini. The cars body is so bad I'd say its beyond restoration.

Good memory Shyam. Its the pic of the same car I had put up. It was for sale then as is now (if not already sold) fro an exorbitant price.

No. Please be advised, there was indeed a stainless-steel grille with rectangular openings. Here is a picture with the same bumper overriders too.
