You are right it about a 1937 model. If you want good pictures you can look at the one with Mr. Ram Viswanathan at Chennai. It has a very spacious rear seat - I mean legroom. Mohaan

Found this one being towed today near Mehrauli in Delhi. Wonder if it gets restored or scrapped. Please help - couldn't identify.

This is a post war Jag 1947 to 49 and by the size i think it would be a 3.5 liter.

Any idea if it was a four cylinder 1.5 or one of its bigger 6 cylinder 2.5 or 3.5 liter sisters.

Do try to find out please.

@ wasif: Thanks for the ID. Found a pic of the same on this site posted by TractionAvant - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attach...47jaguar_2.jpg. I have no idea where the car came from or went to. Only hoping it went to a restorer and not cut up for scrap.

Question Is this a 'Rusting in peace' case ?

Not sure if the condition of this car warrants inclusion in this thread... but it did look like it had been parked at that spot for quite some time now.

The car is/was located about a week ago at the Bharat Petroleum pump on double road, near Richmond circle, under the flyover...

Sorry about the poor quality pics... phone cam.

Wow, an AMC Gremlin. Don't remember seeing one here at all, other than (which was actually the sibling, Pacer) in John Denver's flick "Oh God!" that I watched in the old 'Westend' of Poona in 1980/81 sitting regally in an armchair in the 'Balcony'. Quaint design that stood out on North American roads, despite the K-series and other 'econo' squirrels in the late 70s. Quite a lemon though, otherwise. But still wouldn't mind having one today!!

This is one of Pickloo's cars we saw in Guwahati along with a lot of other ones in much better shape. I should have asked him what type it was but he did tell me that he had to dig it out of the mud as it had been partially buried.

Another "resurrection" by Pickloo!

A stylish looking thing, looks very British but is not an Austin, nor a Standard. I doubt it is a Morris, though the creased front fenders shout otherwise. Can anyone else hazard a guess?

Another AMC Gremlin was lying around in Mumbai for a couple of years before it moved out. Not sure if this could be the same one.

No hazards, absolutely, proper British! This is a Sunbeam Talbot Tourer early 1940s; or the remains of one at least. Could have been a Ten or a Two Litre Tourer.

'should've originally looked like this then:

Classic Car Garage - Sunbeam Talbot

By the looks of it, it needs everything- including an engine! 'wonder what he intends to do with it!

That was a Pacer not a Gremlin, from Dadar Parsi Colony. Was picked up by a dealer in Borivilli some time ago and is now in the private collection of a friend since around the past almost 6-8 months.

This is another car
