Well it is a Morris Oxford and this car has got lot of parts from other cars.So we could say it is a Morris oxford which is not original.

@ajay99 wow! so much details? i think there is a similar car (much worse condition) lying in a house adjacent to GG hospital,Pattom.

When i spotted the car i posted i first thought its the same one.

the car was spotted near NH byepass to kovalam,where you can see loads of old age cars (especially ambys).Also saw a couple of Merc W123s and a W124 lying in a workshop.

the car you are mentioning near GG hospital is a 1953 standard vanguard belonging to a former arms dealer .

This particular model is quite in vogue now days, in certain parts of europe looks very attractive painted yellow or a german orange. Plus the Fast back shape is a an added advantage.

Have been seeing a Nissan Cedric rot inside a house for a while. A few weeks back, it was moved on to the road outside the house. I took a few snaps of that car yesterday. Will put them up tomorrow.

Also a couple of old mercs, a millicento & a toyota Cressida are parked right across the road from my house. Have taken pics of them too. Wait till tomorrow.
