I remember my Dad's book on the history of Jaguar mentions them, being imported as a rolling chassis & bodied by Swallow.

Swallow Sidecars Ltd developed into Jaguar. I hadn't heard of a Swallow Fiat before, thanks.

By boat. The Lingotto factory was the largest vehicle production plant in Europe at the time, run by communists and offering off-the-shelf chassis at low price
