Yep SuperSelect, Thats the name, It wasn't clear because the lead was removed from the marble on the gate post. But I figured it out to be something like 'Agarwal'
The owner of the black car in the closed garage has a black Skoda out in front of the garage. I am presuming this cos the garage was half open and they were doing some maintainence on the Skoda

Yep 239. Are you on the inner road? I come to this place often as my Homeopath is on the main rd.
I'm sure there may some treasures there in those closed garages.

EDIT: Okay Cyrus, I know which circle you're refering to. I drive around it to reach the main road since I park in the lane. Any nice engilsh bikes or old BMW's in still in the colony?

I live just beyond the Circle on the Parsi colony side. If you come from agrawal nagar to fivegardens, you will see a big circle with a BEST substation in It. I live on the periphery.

I am sure there is some pone making the headlights as reproductions. The fact that bits are missing is intriguing .Either the parts are still close by or there is another Graham Supercharger in the area where the parts have been used.
But...what on earth is that in the background..

That Graham was a complete car that has deteriorated to what you see here due to the owners not caring about. Parts have been lost and there is no other similar Graham that has benefited for them. Rather sad fate to befall such a striking car.

That contraption visible in the back looks like a home comstructed RV of some kind

I'm trying this again, One last time..... Before I give up....

Can anyone give me the details of the KA-19 Merc with the Amby Grille? I'd like to pick that one up, and most probably work with Autopsyche to see how best we can restore the car to its original condition.

Hi Girish,

The engine of this car is original indeed.
The asking price is high, but where will you get another one? And it is prewar and relatively complete.

Cheers harit
