Yes, the famous Nash in a famous garage in Mumbai. That garage is often seen in movies, Bollywood ofcourse. Now moved on.

Beauty? Are you serious? Pardon me, no offence meant.
Honestly, this was one of the most unloved 8 cylinder cars available in India. I can tell about a lot of people who had difficulties in shifting this car. And many were WB registered.

Sir this car is a President (V8).By looking at the pictures we can say it because the commander and the champion both had only a single beed all around but the president had a double beed.This car was said to have no documents what so ever when offered to me.

-Have been sending you a few PM's but havn't got any response wonder if you got them.

Here is an uncommon sight I've been seeing for the last year or so.

A 1950s (?) Willys pickup, lying neglected next to an early American truck (Chevy?).

The pick up has been dieselised, though still seems worth restoring. Not for sale.

Karl :
The pick up is at least a 1960 or later.
These pickups were made from 1947 to 1965.
But the unique chrome trim announces it as a post-1960.
The pick up came in 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder variants.
Two-wheel drives were only made from 1947-1950 and one in 1956.
The rest of them were all 4x4s.

Besides having been re-engined with a diesel, it has also been stripped of its four-wheel-drive hardware. I don't see the front-axle selector and underdrive levers in your cabin interior photo.

I identify the truck as a 1945-47 Ford, not a Chevrolet.

The 1945-47 Chevrolet would have had three strips on the side of the hood,
not a gash with a central strip like this Ford.
