So olden, so golden, so original, it takes us back to those good old times!
I think it should be 1959 Millicento because 1960-1962 were the years of the Fiat select.There are many young fiat enthusiast who still dont believe the existence of this particular model

And then apart form badging was there other differences?? May be they got the earlier logo's imported and later had the FIAT1100 badging locally done.

I believe the differences were the Millecento badging front and rear (also seen Fiat 1100 front badging). Additionally the cable operated starter, L shaped bootlid lock, large cylindrical air cleaner (all carried over from the dukkar) could be possibilities. Additionally the 'FIAT' script badge around the ignition key. I cannot confirm, but this is what I've gathered. Cannot even recall from where I gathered, its just heresay Incidentally I recently bought one, single owner, but extremely rough (many would say completely not worth restoring). Many cosmetics missing, so not a good reference, but another piece in the puzzle.

Traffic scenes, Fiats dominating. Two similar photos are not same, there may be a few seconds difference. I suspec this is Mohammad Ali Road and Pydhonie junction. The third pic somewhere in Kalbadevi?
Harit ji, kindly tell me the complete Regd no.of the Fiat car in the first photo.
Looks like 1965 Fiat, MRZ 31XX. Please disclose xx as our Amby 1965 was MRZ 3129.

'came across this pic. randomly on the "hindu" (newspaper) website the other day, can't find the page again sorry!
It was an article about rallying in Southern India, with particular reference to the then Champion S. Karivardhan ('kari')...not sure if this is him though. Car appears to be a '65 1100 Delight, going by the grille.

Also check out the nice yank tanks in the background!

Harit, sorry meant to reply to this post of yours earlier but later on forgot!
Reg. Heralds rusting ,well, not all of them would have. Maybe the ones in your neck of the woods (so did Fiats, which were more common there! ) and other coastal areas but they did survive relatively well otherwise. Unofortunately many did still get scrapped then due to lack of demand! :(

Hi All,

I'm uploading picture of a Mercedes owned by Pandit Bhimsen Joshi. I saw this picture in the FB album of a person who I believe is close to movie industry and an ardent lover of music.

I have seen a few more pictures of other imminent personalities and their cars in this person's FB album. I'm not sure if I can post those pictures.



Thanks,
Jose

That's a lovely shot, thanks.

We can see a 1930s/40s Wolseley, two tone. A very similar car was posted by Wasif from his family albums (albeit Madras registered). I wonder, could they be the same?
