I suppose one of the goals of this extra info field is to provide information that allows a more complete knowledge of the vehicle in question. Since this is a Fiat and the most popular versions were powered by Fiat engines, I couldn't see a reason why not to mention this detail that differentiates these O.S.C.A.-powered versions. Besides, period and nowadays publications also refer to them this way.
The O.S.C.A. twin-cam engines were firstly used in 1491cc form in the 1500 Cabriolet [118 S] introduced in the summer of 1959. This engine also powered the 1961 1500 S Cabriolet, equipped with disc brakes.
The 1600 S Cabriolet [118 SA] was introduced in 1962 and it was powered by a 1568cc version of the twin-cam O.S.C.A. engine. It had the first type of front end but with a different air intake on the left of the bonnet. In 1963, the 1600 S Cabriolet [118 SB] - with the pictured front end - was introduced, keeping the same twin-cam engine. Later, in 1965, it received a 5-speed gearbox ( this 1965 version is externally recognizable by a different Fiat grille-badge ).
The Fiat-powered versions - 1963 and 1965 1500 Cabriolet [118 H] - only used a 1481cc single-cam engine.
