Sirji, please go ahead and post the said article. It is purely for academical purposes, and just one small article, it should not be a problem, especially since you are giving the source of the information. I would really love to see, moreso considering that I have an Oval.

This car was lying in Panjim, Goa and was black in colour. In the 1970's during one of our trips to Goa, my brother saw this car and told me about it. I did NOT believe him, till I saw it a few days later myself.
Incidently, there is a Ford Model T in Bangalore with a similar setup, and there was a Vauxhall in Mumbai as well.

Cheers harit

This lovely later Bug was seen in a rally a few years back in Pune. I believe it is still with the first owner.

I think you are talking about this car Harit Sir....! Well, i am hoping, if i will be able to get this fellow back on the road running soon.

BTW, can anyone enlighten me , on how to get the old paint codes matched with the present paints available. Example being L97 - Pearl white (non metallic shade) used in 1960 - 1963 Beetles. How do i get the same shade in Dupont or Standox.....

Saw an old VW sedan on elevated way today. Blue colour TN registered, No idea about the model, but it was doing 80-100 speed effortlessly.

ANY pics? or can you be a little more elaborate when you say VW sedan? you could try the forum for lookalikes and the senior members here will definitely help.

Nope, this car was/is owned by a Captain. The Kaul's car was original yellow, but painted red for many years and is the best 66 I have ever seen. Also single owner. I first saw it in 1996 at my school where Mrs. Kaul taught me Hindi.
