I feel sad, for those cars, there are couple of more cars there, which as per me might face the same fate. Mostly attributed to owners loosing interest on the cars and also maybe the restorer who is half interested in them.

Only car owners who are genuine passionate guys will try the hardest come whatever may to finish the car and take it home. But sadly few cars may never get to drive on the roads ever in their lifetime.
+1 on that Pavan. Some times when owners have too many cars, live far away or have informal Managers handling their cars some are bound to be lost. The Desoto is a case where the Manager dumped it here to hide it from the actual Owner to avoid getting blasted for this junk. The car is not restorable as only the body shell and major part of suspension exists.

There is also a DKW lying close by owned by the same Owner. The Manager bought this car to be displayed in their Hotel, but now seems to have lost interest. This car too will rot away over a period of time as it lies unattended.

The Wolseley is very restorable but may not be worth the restoration. Sorting out this owner for all the missing parts supposedly safely stored will be more difficult than your "Experience with the British" .

The car is not rusting or disintegrating there, but has gone there for work.

Why, this is a Standard Herald of course- with me around, you will definitely know from now on!
BTW, 'Standard' is the make.

BTW, is the number of this car APU 888??? I suspect it is, I knew that car. It belonged to someone in Begumpet and was offered for sale too, around 2005.
It was in the same kind of colours, but painted in a slightly different pattern. Unfortunately I thought the price too high and didnt pick it up....only to regret it!!

Where have you spotted this car?? Any other details of the owner etc.?? I'd like to know please!

Shyam bhai it seems you have an upcoming resto. project at hand. Please save this nearly complete Herald. Many parts are still intact on it which includes the tail lamp assemblies with the reflectors which is surprising. Those whitewalls look original, though have lost the tread.

Great minds do think alike??

Only challenge is raising funds for another one now...hehe! Do pray for me!!

Incidentally, I forgot to mention- its an early ('61-62) Herald!! Good to know one more still exists in Hyderabad. I'm still guessing its the one I mentioned!

Why do people do this? the Fiat is very tempting, but seems to be fairly well maintained, it still has the original wheel hubs aswell. I guess it is a daily runner. Somehow I feel the Fiat doesn't fit the bill (this thread) this can be posted in some other Fiat threads.

That fiat is a daily runner. True.

It has already been discussed in other threads

In addition to the fiat the other cars too have been discussed and reason why they are there.

Hi Ram,

Actually replied to you PM before seeing this post. The answer is still the same. You seem to have got confused on the car and its description. There is no such car as you asked.

Cheers
