Sorry to start such an old thread, I know some one who is interested in picking up one of those to restore the one he has as he is in love with his car.

Can somebody tell me whether they are still lying arround there at popular.

the thread is more than 2.5 yrs old,I think the cars must have been sold by now.Mumbai T-BHPians can help you in finding out more about the cars.

I'd bet they are still around. Call Popular directly.

@ Ankit : If they didn't move off the lot for 11 years, why would the next 3 make a difference?

Was in Chennai yesterday, saw one of these while travelling from Adyar to Rajib Gandhi Salai. Looked pretty impressive given the age.

Popular Cars has bought a yard at Navi Mumbai a year ago, i think i saw a few of those Montegos lying there, in quite bad shape though.
Ideally just call Popular Cars directly, i'm sure they will accept whatever little you feel like offering, they've probably written the cars off as dead stock by now.

4 Lakhs was 3 years ago. It is probably 40k now. No harm in exploring.
