Hmm.....I remember seeing a similar car (albeit it was dark blue) sitting forgotten & neglected just outside the ICMR guest house then at Safdarjung Road when we visited Delhi way back in the late 80s.....I was a kid then......I just remember it looked even worse, with most of the glasses broken/gone.....I was told the owner had died & his children didnt want the car, abandoning it on the roadside there.....'still remember how my heart went out to that car!
I heard the muncipality eventually towed away the car from there.

An early 70s Merc. 280se(?).....sitting for what seems like ages at a local garage here.....incidentally happens to be for sale....but I can figure out that he'd ask the moon for it (he wants 60k just for that black '55 fiat seen in the background!)



Incidentally, it looks like someone knew this car would be photo'd for viewing on team bhp....they already erased (although literally!) the numbr plates!

definitely not a Monte Carlo.......the original Monte's only had two doors (coupe) and the shape of the hood/headlights/tail etc is completely different. Looks like an Impala, but hard to tell....this isn't the same car posted earlier as a Nova, is it? The garage looks the same....

Hey Stan, thats a merc 108 series which were made between 1965-66 to early seventies. This ones a LHD but looks like the European and not the American LHD as the telltale US specs are not there, but its difficult to say from the pic. Such cars have been vandalised and fitted with diesels more often than not. If all things are original, I would definately also be interested in this rust bucket!!.

Wow, this is incredible....looks like the Merc. commands attention anywhere, anytime no matter even if it happens to be a rust bucket!
Just a day since I've posted pics. of this car & 2 interested 'parties' already!

I havent asked him as yet about the price...will find out when I go that way next time (may be going there in a few days.)

Even if the cars under the sky taking the Sun the rain and everything isn't it amazing how the thing is holding up structurally. Thats what makes Merc's Merc's.
