Is that a carb 1800 cc petrol engine in the pics?

By the way the restoration is coming up very well. I guess we all are now waiting to see the car hit the roads, and I'm sure getting impatient as well.

Deep Wine. Like very dark Maroon. This was the color used for reference, but it seems to have come out darker than that, though it still looks pretty good in the pics (I havent seen the car in person):

Jaggu - whatever can be done by the 7th of July. Nothing more. If there's more to be done we'll do it later. I'm in India for 3 days from 9th and I'd like to close this chapter then.

Yes it is, and we have one more carbed 1800 as a reserve/standby.

I have been Pm-ing Steer for months now and my efforts have borne fruit.

Steeroid bhai has kindly agreed to sell it to me - After taking delivery of this car and driving it for 3 days, , for nothing more than the costs involved.

Steeroid bhai, I shall be indebted to thou throughout my life. I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude towards your act of kindness. TUSSI GREAT HO!!

I will, of course, be coming to take delivery of the car.

Seriously speaking, not until next year.

Status report:

Engine started up finally. Car's ready for road tests tomorrow and the day after, delivery on the evening of the 8th if all goes well.

4 BHPians will then drive her down from B'lore to Cochin starting at noon on the 9th, accompanied by a mechanic and a driver in a Scorpio support vehicle equipped with a tow hook, tow ropes and a toolkit.

MODS: Please edit title to "My Landmaster Project - End of Phase 1, Finally(?)"

EDIT: There was supposed to be a question mark in the title, but hopefully everything will go well. Maybe we wont need that question mark after all. (PRAYING HARD!)

Rudraji - Car available for you to inspect/drive/shoot on Tuesday night/wednesday morning with one of our guys. I will send you the number.

Well, as the Old Man(R) of the forum he's entitled to do so and quite frankly I wont be complaining - I will get Power Steering and Airconditioning

Wonderful......please take a lot of pics on the trip and do post driving experiences and a report. Will look forward to it.
I think one can bolt on fit the power steering from Rane.
Airconditioning should not pose any problems.
Since you are doing that, why dont you take a duct right at the rear parcel tray and let out two, twin vents with round air deflectors like in the older Mercs or the Chevies. Wont be difficult to source these vents from the local second hand market.
The best bet would be the W123 circular vents.
Eagerly looking forward to more inputs on this thread
