Hi all, here are some photos of my new '49 Fiat Topolino. It's going to end up as an altered running in A/VG over here in Australia. We'll be removing the floor and the fenders, welding everything shut, and hinging it at the back in tribute to the Mondello & Matsubara altered. We'll also be creating a '38-48 topolino nose out of sheet, so it'll be a '38 until the C pillar, then a '49 from there backwards. It'll run a naturally aspirated, worked Ford 302, C6 and 9" with a tube chassis. As far as the rest of the design goes, it's based closely on the previously mentioned Mondello coupe (special thanks to Karpo M for supplying a huge amount of detailed images of his amazing car), with American racing 12 spokes up front with a straight tube axle, and Halibrand big window replicas in the back. I picked it up yesterday morning and by the time I left last night we had gutted what was left of the interior, cut part of the floor out, removed the glass and window runners, scraped off boxes full of red Aussie farm dirt and caked on mud, and snapped a lot of rusted fender bolts... I'll post some more pics as we make some more progress.
