It seems to be an early 50s Vauxhall Wyvern/Velox "LIP" series.

The rear glass appears to be much bigger than the regular ones. Is it the Ambys windsheild? Anyway a well maintained Select and appears like a taxi at the first glance because of the colour combination.

It is the original glass. Glass size was increased in 58, this being a 58-62 model.

Default 1957 Fiat 1100

saw this restored 1957 fiat near TRIVANDRUM today morning.
the driver said the owner may sell if he gets a good offer!!!
seemed to have good originality except for the drum type air cleaner and the aluminium fiat logo wheel caps

Uh, sorry but I dont see any hubcaps on the car, aluminium or otherwise?!

Side-trims too are missing. But otherwise looks like a clean, restorable car.

But Chettah,

It seems to have most of the things intact (trims, logos and lights), seems a good project to me.

An Austin belonging to an industrialist in cochin. Pardon my lack of knowledge in identifying the model and year. They have a seperate garage just for the classic & vintage models and I hope to get snaps of the complete collection
