This car came as quite a surprise to me imagine a left hand drive millecento, I am sure this may have been an early import directly from Europe. Would love to know more about its history though.

There is one more LHD millecento in Pune (now hibernating due to mechanical poblems) which used to be a regular at the FCCCI Pune events earlier.
I will post a picture of that car later when I can find it.

Hi Jubin, the car is really looking nice, kudos to Digamber and you. How about some more photos of the interiors, did you redo those as well? Hope to see you at a FCCCI meet in Mumbai soon in the near future. rgds ->the mole

I passed by Five Gardens in Dadar at around 11AM this sunday and was amazed to see so many old Fiats in one row. I did not know there was a Fiat Club in Bombay. I have a 1953 Millicento with all original fittings including original keys and its the first owner owned originally by my great grand father. The car is in original paint with only 40000 miles on it.

Vow! Amazing!
Great to know the wonderful history about your unique Millecento.

You are most welcome to be a member of our FCCCI - Mumbai club.
And it would be nice to have you and your FIAT with us for our April Meet/Drive, the details of which will be put up shortly on this thread itself.

Wish you HAPPY FIATing and all the best!

Great to know all hidden treasures coming out on mumbai roads. Thanks to all those Fiat Fans who have preserved these beauties . Even I am eagerly waiting to see Autoarts Millecento which is being maintain & preserved by the 4th generation. Hey man you are really lucky. Do upload your Millecento pics asap.
