Desperately needs one, as he doesn't have a replacement piece..

He has threatened to modify the hapless car's fenders to accommodate the 'large' headlight if he doesn't get a ring soon.

Any leads ??
very difficult to source the original ones,
but you can try to import one

fiat 103, old type (millicento / elegent) wheel caps available on ebay. I have come to know from Amol's restoration thread that he found them with much difficulty.

Question for the gurus. Did these came in Aluminium or in Steel, to me the ones on sale are repro. Also looks the design is somewhat different. Awaiting comment

These will not fit our cars. These are intended for the Millecento commercial pickups and delivery vans with different wheels.

From what I understand, Indian Millecentos from start to 56 were fitted with aluminium units, and Elegants with steel units.

See I made the same mistake a long time ago and bought two of these, they are meant for the trucks based on the 1100 platform, the rim is different on these. You can see that the seller has put a note saying they are for the industriale model.

Anyways I have never come across on ebay or elsewhere SS versions of the hubcaps, all the ones I have are Aluminum. In anycase why are you looking at these, they should not be there on your select

IIRC, I think the name was WARN. They did make free-wheeling hubs for these jeeps as well.

WARN makes winches etc for off road vehicles. They also make off-road lights. Wagner is the brand of sealed beams made by Federal-Mogul. They are great sealed beams, I had them more than 20 years ago on my fiat.

not likely, because your model distributor will be different
by the way is not your model 1100cc?

The jeeps came factory fitted with 45W/45W Corcoran-Brown "Seelite" marked sealed beam type headlamps which used Mazda No. 2400 bulb. These are super rare and very valuable.
The 6V sealed beams you are talking about could be of WAGNER brand.

Cheers
