this is a similar car and i think there were two more not sure.
the price of the car depends on the condition and how much the owner wants for it. the car according to me should not be more than 2.5 lacs. seeing the car condition it looks like it is well kept and the owner might not want to sell it. you could try asking cyrus. all the best.

hmm..maybe i will...lets see what the owner really wants....if he does not know the true value of the car, he may give it for a pitance...something like Rs/-20,000...
let me show the car to dad...lets see what he says...

the car does not look in that bad a shape and in todays world where the person has kept the car for so long and in reasonable shape sure knows the value of the car. so for 20 thousand you are dreaming.
show the car to dad and then find out about the owner and his demands.
there were two other cars on the what cars are these thread that are from dadar and are for sale. dodge special, dodge46 and the austin westminister(u had posted earlier).
