Boss, Unless you get it for peanuts, I would not think it would be a worthwhile project.

Too much to be done as far as the pics show. The Bodyline looks good but it needs an all round Tinkering job which would definitely be time consuming and worthwhile only if you are able to get all the body parts for it from the market.

If time, money and skilled manpower are no dearth then it is ok to pick this up. Am pretty sure there would be many more better examples which would make easier restorations than this one.

Oh no, it's the same story all over again.. :(
The guy will be "not interested" in selling the car. And she will rot away. At least let someone scavenge for the parts, guys.. Or as usual, the scrapwallahs will have the last laugh.

Yes its a Dolphin Estate, but just the body, no mechanicals.
The owner claims he has the Zephyr's original engine, a V6 but some parts are missing.

I did see this bike again last month when I travelled to Goa. Next trip, I will certainly try to find out about this bike.

Strongly suggest that you have a very very close look at the car. Just by glancing at these photos you may see the altered dash, ruining the interior. Then you may notice that the windscreen appears to be altered. Look carefully, perhaps the rear glass is also plastic. The trims are horrible, headlight surrounds are missing, tails lights are repaired with plastic and the list goes on. And no idea about mechanical condition. I saw this car in Nagpur about 3/4 years ago and let it be.
