Thumbs up FCCI Dedicated Forum

As discussed I have setup a trial forums board dedicated to FCCI. You can view it on Fiat Classic Club Of India. I'd like every one to start using it.
Thanks.

PS Do put up details on the restorations.
Photographs of the inhouse Topolino restoration.

Karl did the original Topolino have bumpers ?? I think they were bumperless .
























I took liberties with the roof , I think for the best.

& yes the tyres are the Bajaj Eliminator MRF Zappers ( nothing is perfect )

Vintageman, your type of Topolino (presumably an 500 A model) came without bumpers. It was certain models from the forties which had bumpers on them.
Congrats on restoring her to her original beauty.

vintageman i am impressed with the effort and the pain taken with each and every part of the car and it shows in the final product. the car looks nothing short of what it would have in its prime. hope to see many other cars of your done in the same manner. wish you all the luck

Awini, this is an Austin Clifton, which was earlier in Lucknow. Presently the car is in Delhi with Sandeep Katari who is selling it. While in Lucknow it probably had a incorrect engine, but Sandeep had mentioned to me that he had found the proper engine for the car. You need to check.

the car registration numbers are blurred out to protect and respect the owners privacy. the pictures of cars posted are not always our own and taken without their knowledge. dont want any legal complication too ( some owners can be real nasty too).
