This is a morris minor('51 i think) @ cochin. the car was in quite good shape when it came to this garage.It ven came with a spare engine. It only needed paint and interior trim work. At that time i offered him an amount which he laughed off and asked an absolutely idiotic amount which i refused.
And then a year or so later, i offered another amount which too was laffed off sayin he was goin to restore it! and now look what it is like! i feel like kicking the old guy everytime i see him!

jayd the car does not look in a bad shape it has primar on the the car. what is the interior condition of the car. according to me it is a restoreable car. you could go ahead and buy it. if you look around you might find another vintage or classic.
P.S. have posted your request on indian made classic cars. sorry dont know how to add links. also my picture gallery has the caddy.

My father still thinks I'm a nut job!! So does my Wife-Brother-Mom. Dad, coz he's fond of cars (its hereditary) sometimes understands but the rest of the family think I'm possessed by the ghost of a scrap dealer.

Well considering the fact that your Dad has NO clue as to how many cars you actually own, I don't think that's too bad Gogi bhai!

my mother still thinks my brother has started a scrap business on the side. my mother has only seen the cadillac, packard and the 170v. she thinks we only have these three cars. if she does pop her head in the office and sees a new vintage standing outside the garage her normal reaction is why you got this salvage here. man if she ever walks into the garage my brother and me would need a new home.

GS you beat me to it was just uploading this very cars pictures. the right door left open and the boot contains part of the exhaust. if you noticed the interiors of the car the meters are still intact. surprised how the athorities have not towed away a car standing in such bad shape and that too on the foothpath.

You can still upload the pictures speedy, they must be from different angles. You can post the pictures of the rear and interiors if you clicked it. I didn't see the interiors, just clicked these two pics.
