wow! that's a neatly maintained Herald; brings back memories (our neighbour back in the 80s had a white one).

the spoke wheels remind me of Aston Martin DB5

Indeed the Jeep is beautiful. It was brought down from Hyderabad, restored in Bangalore and then sold to someone for 5 odd lakhs. I am not sure if the Jeep is still in Bangalore, but IIRC the restorer told me that the Jeep may go back to Hyderabad after the restoration.

Do you know what they did for the engine and if the Jeep was 4x4? I saw some of these Jeeps in India that were actually not 4x4.

^^^ I am not a big fan of low profile tires and definitely don't like that spoiler. I like the 3 series looks and that color though.

I am not located in Bangalore anymore. So sorry cannot give you much details. But if you know somebody in Bangalore then you can get this restorer located in Jayanagar 7th Block. The guy has restored plenty of Jeeps, Yamaha RD350's and he is a big fan of the original Vespa's.

This 'stanher' () is apparently quite popular online. Not a bad custom job but why cut out holes for parking lights (amby mk4 by the looks of it) and then leave them blank?! That mars the whole effort!

Those are killer wheels but if it is a daily driver, God save his spine.

^^ H4WK,

That just looks like a kitted C-Class and not a 'real' AMG. The faux-diffusers are a giveaway. Quite like the wheels though.

Well, this pic has been in my HD for a while now. Got it through a friend of mine. Done @ Mkraft (Mumbai) I think. I kinda like the color combo.

Check this out!
