had asked farhan but he was sent the pictures in mail and the dealer was quoteing a very fancy amount for it so he did not pay attention and remember where it is.

Speedy...here is another version of the ignition key surround. This one is from a millecento.

Speedy, the surround present on the car you've posted is an not original fitting to this particular model, but is period, cool, and was offered in some markets as an option on earlier models. Farhan, what you have posted is original to Indian Dukkars, and it fits in a small rectangular notch positioned above the key, while the other design (speedy) fits in a hole placed slightly higher up. Difficult to explain, hope the pics explain better.

Another question with the picture quoted above: Is the lock set for the glove box in this one original? Looks different and new to me.

Karl, my aunt in Lucknow had a 1961 Fiat, with a ignition surround similar to what Speedy has posted, but was light grey in color. It seemed to be a an original fitting that came with the car.

Thanks to your great shot. Or was it Shrivz? I forget.

The Glove box lock (er..non locking though) is indeed original to Dukkars. in the Select it changed to a push-down spring type mechanism. The glove box door is different too, see the depression/lip to accomodate this push button arrangment.

Hmm...in retrospect I have wrongly worded my previous post. This design in question is indeed for this model, though I doubt they were offered as standard fitment. A dealer option perhaps. I have seen many cars in original dahboard paint of this model without the hole, or traces of it being filled. This includes a gent who followed his car on the assembly line!

Times like these I really wish I had an uncle working at Kurla with Premier back in the day...sigh!

If it is great, it has to be mine . Psst, I was trying to capture the cracks in bakelite and all other holes and depressions you see are purely coincidental.

I get it so the Select was similar to what exists on your President? (Scratched paint Aluminum?)

Yes indeedy. Except it should be just aluminium. The scratched paint is from my last repaint some 25 years ago.
