Tell me about it! You can find such converted LBs made every single day in a scrapyard at this place called Bahadurpura, which is in old Hyderabad. And once done, they'd sure sell at the price of a genuine LB!

I guess the only way to verify if a genuine LB is by checking the RC, that too if the original old type.

Why forget the original reason for having a taller bonnet ?

Hope I'm not stating the obvious, to you experts who already know why the low bonnet of the Willys CJ-3A was made taller in the Willys CJ-3B.

It was to accommodate the taller F-head and overhead valve cover on the engine which was then renamed "Hurricane". The earlier L-head on the 134 cid "Go-Devil" engine sat comfortably in the prettier low-bonnet.

So look for a Jeep with an original L-head 2199 cc Go-Devil engine.

Jokes apart. On a serious note : If its not, I would request the Moderator to take it off. Not a problem.

I would not want to disregard the forum rules at any point of time

A rescent picture of the supercharged Graham deteriorating in Pakistan courtsey of Pak Wheels

The other picture is of a Ford Phaeton being restored by Mohsin Akram.

Also some pics of a Herald also from Pak wheels specially for Stanher, must be a proper Standard from UK. Was the Standard Herald produced in India ever sold in Pakistan ?

So sad to find my beloved car with this fate even across the border!! :sob:
Any more details on this car's story?

Wasif, I suspect this car, however is a TRIUMPH Herald, and not a desi Standard one- can say by the thick chrome trims at the tips of the fins (Standard Heralds didn't have them, except for the 4-door, which were again aluminium ones)

If I remember correctly, It is known as "Triumph Herald" in UK & rest of the world & "Standard Herald" in India. The Herald has a switchable Fuel take-off for "R"eserve and "M"ain tank. Does any one remember any other vehicle having this facility?

The Standard Pennant / super 10 also had it. A sort of tap or switch at the base of the rear seat on the drivers side. Was it available in all Standard vehicles?

@esteem lover,
Nissan Cedric's a real sad sight! The body doesnt look too corroded for the Madras climate. Have the wheels been taken off by the owners or stolen?? I reckon this car would end up at Puthupet sooner or later unless it is lucky!

Sad to see the other cars too left like this! The Fiat is actually a select with a superselect grille. But otherwise remarkably original! The Millecento badge was fitted on cars in other markets, as opposed to the FIAT 1100 badge that Indian 1100s had.

The 2nd merc. seems to be what was called as Pagoda- willing to be corrected on this. By the looks of it, I suspect it (and maybe all these cars are) is owned by someone who gives such cars out for film shoots only, and never bothers to use or restore them! Trooper had photo'd a similar fiat and a white & green Pennant (MDM 48) owned by a similar guy some time ago although they may not be on team bhp.
Sad!
