While the 1100R sported a heavily revised rear end with round tail lights (after the 1100D), the wagon continued to sport the older rear end design with conventional Delight tail lights.

Ajay, do you have any more pictures of this car? Would love to see.

The station wagon had a rear door opening sideways, not tailgate up. BTW, there used to be a grey coloured Dukker Fiat stationwagon in Mumbai, and it was original. According to my memory, the taillights were fitted with an extension and mounted flat. There were at least three 1100R station wagons in Mumbai and at least one imported 1100D stationwagon too.

Yup, the wagons had side hinged tail gates. The door handle for the tail gate too was the earlier pull type, while the other 4 doors had push button handles. There was/is one white 1100R wagon in Pune, MTJ regd. Also one Delight wagon (imported), yellow colour, MH 12 W regd. It still sported original black centred wheelcaps. Other fittings were Padmini I think. Another white CAH (I think) regd Delight wagon would be parked on MG road for donkeys years till 2-3 years back. Didn't move very often. Somewhere along the way the flat rear windscreen was broken, and replaced with a wooden plank.

The grey wagon you speak of with adaptor mounted tail lights - that wouldn't be the dukkar type but the later 58 and later type. Body styles were similar except the back, so a wagon is easily confused. The dukkar (centre light) wagons had conventionally mounted taillights. A similar one was spotted in Calcutta recently by John at a rally. There is another similar black one too I think there.

Dukkar truck?? This is something new to me!
But how would a truck have a dukkar shape? Or do you mean it's from the same era as the dukkar? I used to see lots of old Fiat trucks in Libya when we were there for some time.

Oh yes thats the one, I already have four hubcaps for the truck, bought them accidentally but they dont fit on the cars. Apparently the rim is different for both.

But its my dream is to own one of these one day and mount my 1962 Lambretta at the back. Man its going to look rocking

I went to R City Mall which just opened up near Powai and found a nice Superselect hanging from the ceiling of one of the stores. Looked supercool.

PS - Sorry for the crap quality pictures.

Hmm, I could have found a better place to keep the car. Like my garage! Im not impressed - the car deserved more than this - I hope the damage is temporary.

lets all storm into the mall and pluck her down from the roof!! but the way the economy is going we wont have to wait too long before the store shuts down and they decide to change the interior, that time we will be there to take the catch. literally!!
