Not missing. From 1981 or so only the Deluxe Model came factory fitted with the Centre pieces. This Centre piece, 5 dial Dashboard, Double Carpeting and plusher upholstery were the differentiating feature of Deluxe.

Many use to pit this piece as an after market

Exactly. I've never seen a real one except in the brochure.

I'm watching lot of 80s Malayalam movies these days that shows lot of Ambassadors, Fiats, Standards and other vintage beauties.

Panditji, its first owner passed away a decade or so back and the car has now left Nagpur to surface in a Rally, in its new black colour.
Chanced upon some pictures of the car when still in its second blue shade, from the early 2000s. It was in Bombay at the time.

KET 4050 Mark 4 from Malayalam movies Oru CBI Diary Kurippu (1988), Jagratha (1989) and Kottayam Kunjachan (1990) starring Mammotty. I heard this car belonged to a film producer.

Please excuse the picture quality.
