Had spotted it years back in Pune. Had a metal badge starting with V, I forget the name. Rear bumper is from an earlier 68-72 Delight.

Dear Arun - please post a photograph of the grille. If it is totally undamaged, I'll pick it up from you next time I am in Bangalore, otherwise no. Also, please PM me and give me your mobile number. I need to talk to you.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

yes the grille and the symbol do match, but I am not sure about the bumpers and the tail lights. Even the Third side glass and the rear hatch seemed more like :-

Tail-lights I doubt are original even on this car- they seem to be new ones from a CV.

IIRC the safari had round tail-lights.
