Prithvi I don't think this is a India car. It's been imported from the Uk and these are British plates as far as I know

Hi,
It is not the same car. This is an import apparently still on foreign plates.
The car you are refering to has landed in Pune, I believe now restored, and if you look carefully at some collections showcased on this forum recently, you may see it in the background. Hint: Pune.

Cheers harit

I doubt it, that looks like the Jasdanwalla car. Never say never though.

My reply was quoting Harit's newspaper clipping, not the red Madras car.

You enthusiasts bring great joy to me as I regard the vintage and collectible cars you have. It would seem car "nuts" (meaning those who are crazy about cars) are much alike whether in the UK, Japan, India, or the US. I am most impressed with the care you show with your autos. Thanks.

I had to strain my eyes to read the text on the news clipping, but I think it says Shashi Kapoor's 1957 Silver Grey Mercedes 190SL. Is that right or is the reporter wrong?

I never read the article properly, had just put it up.
I doubt Shashi Kapoor owned this 190SL, he had a white W115 MRF???? registered and at his residence on Nepean Sea Road there was a black Pagoda Merc and a red American Vintage Sedan.
