That is if you've seen it at a house in St. no. 9, beside St.Ann's School.

I've not seen/heard of any other in that area for that matter!
Yep that is the one I was referring to, no wonder the license number looked very familiar. Good luck with the new bride anyway.

As promised here is a pic. of CAN's engine bay- it was much cleaner than it is now! The accelerator linkage has been replaced with that of a Fiat.
Also one of the coveted Jalwa horns! These are among the very first few pics. I took of the car when I first met the ex-owner in 2007. I'd lost these pics. when my PC had conked out and had to be formatted once!

Thanks to karl for having sent me back these.

And, last but certainly not the least, one pic. I have of the late previous owner standing proud and tall with CAN! I had another one too I recall but lost it from my PC (along with many other pics.) as well. The wipers that the car has now seemed to have been fitted sometime later.

Hello Mr. Shyam.

I feel really happy that such a wonderful StanHer has chosen you as its new caretaker! I am also happy that it is originally from Bengaluru!

Superb Standard Herald car in your stable. In fact the previous owner may not know that his beautiful babe went into house of the "Hyderabad's most eligible bachelor for Standards" Ha Ha !! And in in-law's house she will get more care and respect. Also it is guaranteed that after 25 years of reacquisition, her re-marriage ceremony will be celebrated in year 2035!!
Don't worry!!! Even after owning 2-3 Heralds, I'l still call you as "Hyderabad's most eligible bachelor for Standards"

Congrats Shyam.

Such buying stories are rare to come by these days due to the entry of brokers looking for opportunistic sales. The passion demonstrated for the car and acceptable price one pays can only happen with such buying stories

Cheers

Thank you all for your kind words!

And now, finally embarking on giving CAN a 'facelift', or rather quite the opposite!

Got her down to my usual bodywork garage over the weekend. The garage guy did take a look at her (the doors etc) but is yet to give an estimate, which he said he would tomorrow.

Phase 1- got off all the tinted film inside all the glasses, finished today!

Was quite easy to take off despite the film being quite old (I suspect was put up the same time the car was done up in 1989) but has to be done patiently, ie. you have to pull if off slowly if you dont want sticky marks on the glass insides. Of course those can still be cleared off with thinner but that's still hard work and bound to be messy...so the less sticky it ends up, the easier it is for you.

I wish I had better pics to take, but anyways, as you can see, all crystal clear, as she was meant to be!

'also have ready most of the original goodies that are to go on!!

Looks nice, with the sun film off.

Some better pics welcome.

CAN at last found its niche.
The earlier owner may be happy secure in the knowledge that his 'daughter' is in safe hands.
All the best for the work in hand.

Now that is a clear visibility, car now looks great with those transperent glasses seems as if painted recently. I feel any car without tented glass looks different and elegant. Congratulations Shyam you are giving the car a well deserved looks apart from the care. Just waiting to see your babe getting the doors done up get the paint job complete with those off white rims and one fine day "Queen of the roads" on move.

Great work Shyam bhai. The glass seems crystal clear may be because of the protection provided by the film for 21 yrs. I am amazed to see some distinct features of this completely original car, like the rear roof weather strip just below the rear windshield, chrome bits et al. BTW is that a corrosion just below the door glass on the inside. Looks very odd.

IMO He must be referring to the side beading fitted on the outside portion of the door just below the door glass rubber strip.

'doesnt seem like corrosion, although the paint has been flaking off a little probably due to entry of water from outside (the car used to be washed every weekend but only from outside, so any water that entered inside was not wiped off in time)

Oh, ok! Those are called weatherstrips/weather-seals actually. They seem to be taken from Fiat. 'wish I could afford original ones (from UK), will have to make do with these for now!

It looks so much better now without the sunfilm!

Are the windshield and window glasses originally of CAN? As the car was crashed up before, all these glasses might be quite new.
