I had bought this Buick from hyderabad in 1997 and owned it for 7 months contemplating to restore.But then, it was beyond my means and I sold it to this guy from Mumbai - Atul Solanki. Later on, I was told that he buys cars for Harit. KARL - Does Harit still own this, did he ever buy this car ?

Hahaha!! I KNEW it!! Definitely something like this!

Incidentally, I heard of another hillman here in a similar condition that sold for 40k- he too asked for 60k but the buyer managed to bargain it to 40.

So maybe in case of this car also...? We cant say!

Yup, quite likely there will be substantial negotiation. Are you interested? I can strike a deal for you

Well, if and only IF none else decides to go for it! Geez I'm turning into some kind of scavenger here- but what the heck! :P

Anyways, I did have a couple of people here who'd asked for a hillman, quite some time ago. I'll show them the pics. ASAP and hopefully they will be interested! Maybe starting at 25-30k would be ideal?

Btw, what kind of dealer is this? Is it bachubhai's place by any chance?? What happens if none buys the cars he offers? Do they get scrapped?!

Nice car! Good to see a phase 3 vanguard after quite long! I like them better than the earlier models.

If its indeed under restoration, the pics. can be re-posted in the "standard cars in India" thread.
