The Entire body work, painting and fitting might have given you a bill close to 2 Lakh If it was done here. But the Car would be still in the shop in the ready for painting situation that the Landy went through 2 months back.

Because We are Malayalee and we wear Pink Lungi .

2 months back???

It had been 'ready for painting' since February, if I remember right.

I've just been catching up on this thread after a long time - I had missed out most of the posts that you guys made while we were driving.

The other Landmaster is from Dharapuram, near Palani in Tamil Nadu. It is over 50 years old and has been with the same family since new. It is original in most respects except perhaps the meter surrounds which are body coloured rather than patterned aluminium.

He runs an ISZ 2.0 diesel engine on it, and believe it or not this car is their daily drive! They were on their way to Cochin to visit Veegaland - full family and luggage in the car.

The car features a unique a/c arrangement - the superking blower is mounted on the rear parcel tray.

He has a color coded number plate - the background is a matt finish of the same green color that the car is painted in. It looks terrific. I asked him if that was legal and he said nobody has stopped him so far. He has an Indian Flag on the front grille along with an old AA badge on the other side.

Will you please be able to post pictures of this car? Recently there was a For Sale Ad in Autocar India featuring a 1956 Landmaster in metallic grey also fitted with the ISZ2000 engine and with lots of goodies like ac, alloys and so on. He was asking 325K for the car. It was from Delhi I believe.

Pictures are available on earlier posts in this same thread. Please scroll back and check.

For the Landy in Delhi - 325k is not a bad sum considering that I paid a lot more than that for the 'restoration' of a car that I bought, and the work is still not complete. Pick it up - restoration is not a recommended route.

3.25 Lac for a Landy?? Noo!!!!

Steer, remember the diesel Landy i told u about?? It was offered to me for 1 lac,Original dash, meters, A/C and all. But i was not interested since its a diesel. Eventually a friend bought it.

Restoration is a definitely more expensive when compared to buying a restored car in most cases. Unless the car is a Real rare classic, one will mostly never recover the amount that is spent on restoring it.

Talking

very nice pics JayD. Beautiful car.
If you want to get an aged look, try the Sepia setting in the camera instead of black/white.

Am quite sure pros can get much better results, than this 1 min IrfanView job.

I'm still here in Bengalurururu. I spent exactly 4 days with the car, of which 1 day was spent in fitting the a/c.

Swalpa adjust maadi, saaar!
