Wow! Amazing pics Hillram. I guess FCCH started off in the same place with just few cars and now you have grown big.

NVK Sir, where are you? not seen!

Nice to see Bhaskar in HYD!

Mods, Kindly move this post to the right thread if not right placed here.

Recently on a trip to one of the Indonesian island resorts, I came across a Fiat with a Millicento monogram stuck on the dashboard. Took these snaps and later searched the net to see its details but could not locate it on the Millicento page of Wikipedia.

So, Fiat gurus, can you help.

Nice find Fantaboyus.This is not a millicento,but a Fiat 1300/1500 made by Fiat between 1961-67.

That is a Fiat 1300, its 'Milletrecento' which would probably be 1300 in Italian. (Millecento is 1100 in Italian).

Hillram, Karl, Thanks for identifying the car.

Think I should get my eyes tested. I had stared at the car over 30 minutes and yet failed to notice the difference between Millecento and Milletrecento monogram.

Had never this model earlier. Do any exist in India??

For a Bug Fiat, the condition seems pretty salvageable. Mostly when we come across Bug Fiats, their condition is so bad that it is difficult to figure out the colour from a photograph!! Any idea as to the condition of the engine?

OHhh!! My God. The Bug bit you, this car is much much way better than any other car we have seen, is it in your buy list I somehow feel you gonna get this as you deserve one all you need to do is as As in the FEVICOL statement "pakde rehna chodna nahi".

I am sure you going to buy a 118NE this year, diesel or petrol is what is the question, all the very best to you sir waiting for the good news Ramji.

Nice Fiat 500C. Seems in pretty ok condition as these cars are generally rust buckets. This particular car seems to have been painted and i am sure that lots of metal paste is under that coat of paint.
Ram bhai it seems you have made up your mind to acquire a car this year. Well eagerly looking forward to it. Do keep us updated. BTW what happened to the Fiat 850.

Hi FCCHians,
Sorry for last 3 weeks I was totally in different loop. Nice to see rare Fiat1300 and bug Fiat photos. @hillRam: I think by next 4-5 years you will be the only person in Hyd to own maximum number of Fiats. @Chanu: congrates for mini Vespa.
