Default Hanomags in India

First ,it is located not in the southern tip of India ,which is Pygmalion Point !!.
here is the above car advertised for sale


This car belonged to CARE a charitable organisation and was later owned by a person near Secretariat and was in long term ownership of a garage owner in Panavila junction.About a decade ago the present owner bought this car and has been advertised for sale previously.Most vintage car enthusiasts here know about this car .

Default Hanomag Pics - from 23 years ago

With the hope that these pictures will be an impetus for some one to rescue her from her current state, I am reposting them here (Originally I had posted them in the Trivandrum Vintage Car Rally thread).

But I feel the expectation seem to be too unrealistic for any serious collector to be interested - but then again I am not an expert to even make this observation

Best Regards & Drive Safe

Default Re: Hanomags in India

The back definitely resembles an early bug , Somehow was this design related VW Beetle’s design made for Hitler ?
