bhai it looked like a 60's model am not too good with the series but it looked the same as mallya's seen that car up close and personal. ishan has the pictures told him to show it to you as i have no interest in the car. took him to my guy here where there were lots of cars. i dont know if it is original convertible or a chopped top i think its a chopped job but you would know better. i have five cars that i want to pick up from there. so the mercedes has no place in the list. we also saw a few willy's jeeps

Hi V 16 ,

Seems we are renovating similar cars . My Mercedes is at the same stage of restoration as yours and I have also started work on a low bonnet Willys. Also taking delivery of a Plymouth Special Deluxe later tonight ( it's on a truck now ) sourced from a Police auction at Kanpur . By the way this is the second car I have sourced from a police auction the last was a Studebaker involved in a Narcotic case and acquired 6 months back.

Note from Mod

Folks - the discussion seems to have moved towards scouting relics in UP. Have moved the relevant posts to a new thread

Let's focus on enjoying Gogi's project progress
