This car was supposedly on original paint and I so wish the owner would have kept it that way.

Sadly this car has got the Bling attack which is famous in Calcutta restorers ! White walls on English cars - Hope the badges , extra badges , brass and chrome and plaques and more plaques are all put 🙃

The mid 'Fifties FIAT 1100 is a reregistered car. The current TDA registration it has is a Madurai registration, I believe.

The grille has been lifted off a FIAT 1100 103D 'Select' (1958-1962).

And the Willys Wagon is lovely.

MYB would be a mid 'Fifties Bangalore registration series.

Fiat select was sold in india in the period 1959-1962.
1958 had the Fiat millicento(not the 1954-1956 version)

The year of manufacture was questioned by the Statesman Rally judges a few years ago. It was then settled as being a 1913. Till then the car had picked up an array of trophies over the years for being the oldest participant!

This Fiat Cabrio was recently restored in Bangalore, by a very well know enthusiast. Super restoration

Wow, quite a medley of classics- a Topolino with Herald rims (and most likely tyres), Morris Minor front wings and Fiat 1100(?) rear glass and quarter glasses..! It could've very well been somewhere in Cuba!
But good to see it being kept on the road atleast! Engine seems to be original?
