Nice pictures buddy. A caption or two would have helped us understand more about the car.

Ah, the genuine 1st gen Topolino...sparking a string of successes for Fiat's small car buisness. I must say the restoration is progressing positively...

One of the best chassis restorations I've ever seen in India!
Was the topolino on a separate chassis like the Herald btw??

My name is Akhilesh Agarwal, a 65 year old mechanical engineer living in Lucknow. I have five vintage cars-
1929 Austin 7 Chummy
1934 Standard 12
1956 Fiat 1100 Millicento
1948 Fiat 500 Topolino A (sv)
1951 Fiat 500 Topolino C (ohv)
I have had the last two for 20 and 10 years respectively, and am maintaining them in good regular working condition. Photo-


I specialise in engines, particularly Topolino engines and have found ways of successfully repairing their aluminium heads. I have the following parts available for exchange/sale-
Flywheel
Inlet manifold (sv engine)
Sump chamber
Oil pump
Crankshaft
Pistons
Connecting rods
Starter (ohv engine)
Differential parts
Clutch pressure plate
Gearbox
Propeller shaft
Brake drums
Rear half axle
Steering box
Front leaf spring
Carburetor/distributor
I am always on the look out for Topolino parts to buy.

If any Topolino owners have trouble with their aluminium cylinder heads due to corrosion, I will be glad to help.
