Dear Stahner,
Do you know where is the chasis number etched/embossed on the chasis in heralds?I have no clue about it.I know the place to look in Fiats and Ambassadors.
My car has a label on the left column on opening the bonnet.It has engine and chasis number embossed on it.
Kindly opine.Regards.

Undoubtedly, the price is very steep. The pictures of the car, however is impressive.

Another Fintal surfaces. I believe one of the fellow Bhpians have seen this car (correct me ) and quoted 3L for it.

Granted, you can buy a similar Jag in the UK for 10-12L. But, how does one get it into Bharat, with customs own valuation & about 200% duty?

You have a point, but there is an E-type V12 that made it into chennai within the past 5 years. The only way is transfer of residence

Main problem is scarcity created by assymmetrical movement - classic cars get out but very few get in coupled by crippling duties and limited eligibility which in turn creates demand leading to unrealistic prices.

There was a good article about this car's restoration several years back in Auto India with good pictures. I guess i still have that issue. It apparently cost Rs.8L for restoration then..Of course with the absurd and bizarre rules and regulations of Bharat any amount can be asked for a classic car.

Any car pre 1950 can be imported into the country for 220% or 240% duty. There is no need for TR or any other requirement as per my knowledge. there have been 8 to 10 cars that have been imported into the country in this way. From what i have heard, two cars have been imported by Mr.Nitin.Dossa itself.

Not bad! Petrol, et al!

Though it needs to be found out, whether it still runs on its original side-valve mill.

Smiths meters! Marked in Miles! A good Landmaster, after AGES!

Its reregistered though. The colour is a bit strange, and not original. Pink!

Cheers!

In which sense, is it original? Or well kept? To some extent maybe in the past? But not original in the true sense.
A very early Select. I believe this model was known as the Millecento. However, cannibalized to some extent. Some rust present.

SuperSelect trims. PAL Steering. Meters not original.

However, I think this somewhat original car is a keeper. Especially at the throwaway price at which it is being offered.

It is definitely better than other Fiats I've seen. And I've seen much worse.

It is a deserving car, methinks.


II} http://hyderabad.olx.in/vintage-morr...-iid-607950938

Excellent! Specially the number! If say, 20-30K can be cut from the price, I think it is a good bargain. If not, it is still very good.

Cheers!
