Thank you for sharing the pic! Does it feature the curved windscreen of the 1303, because the side-beading above the fender isn't? Or is it, per chance, a model-year spillover 1302 (never know with these multi-nationality bugs, somewhat like our Fiats!!)?

The fender lights are typically US-spec, larger 'Californian' lights - as are the larger energy-absorbing US-spec bumper system. The door might only be out for tin-work. Interesting to notice the peeping sprintstar wheels (probably EMPI stamped) for the North American market.

EDIT:
It just struck me to take a look at the pic again to check the hood shutline, where it curves up near the windscreen. Fortunately it's visible just below where the photo has been cropped, and it does look like that of a 1303.

Spotted this Morris Tourer at a garage this morning. The body seems altered.

I think there should have been the provision for the spare wheel where the fabricated 'dickey' is now!!

Default Help! Reliable workshop for a FIAT restoration!

Hi

I have a 1957 FIAT. With a centre-light and all... Been in possession of this car for almost 12 years now. I'm the third owner. I stay at Panvel, a newly added suburb of Mumbai.

Time has finally come when I can take an active part in the well-being of my 'Piggy'!

She is not in original condition but runs well for her age, minor glitches notwithstanding.

Would someone please suggest a place near to me where I can get Piggy restored to her original glory? Cosmetically, as well as, mechanically. I would be even more obliged if any of the FIAT gurus here could do some 'hand-holding' for me. Thank you!

Btw, Piggy is in Ratnagiri right now. I plan to bring her back here next month.

Regards,

Elegant Pig
