That would be right! IIRC, the garage guy who 'owned' the car was quoting 1 Lac for it back then (in 2009) and someone else told me the car didnt even have papers!
Anyways, I'm not sure if its still there now as I havent been to that place in a long time.

Though not all cars but i can confirm that the Fleetmaster is in Lucknow, still in similar state. The owner doesn't wants to part with it. A handful of classic automobile collectors/ enthusiasts from Lucknow including myself, have approached him but failed to receive any positive feedback.

Default Alfa Romeo !!

Good heavens !! Saw this Alfa Romeo wasting away in the compound of a police station in south Mumbai.
Can't help wondering what got her here, and what good times she must've seen..

Amazing cant even tell what colour the car is anymore, but if it was green, it belonged to a ollector in dadar parsi colony and was up for sale. Subsequently it was seen rotting in a garage in prabhadevi, then a lane near brabourne stadium and now here. Not a very collectible car! but sad!

Sadly not a classic either 'far as I can see! That Police Station would qualify to be one though, and is even right for this thread if we were to include disintegrating buildings!!

And now, I happened to see this junked car of unknown make after a long time.
'had first seen it in Dec. 2006, parked in another part of the city. 'wonder who'd take the trouble of towing this thing all the way to another part of the city and why!

Sorry but these were mobile pics.!

Here's the same car when I first saw it in 2006:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...tml#post335505 (Rust In Pieces... Pics of Disintegrating Classic & Vintage Cars)

(PS: Excuse the language there, I was still a raw newbie then! )

Fortunately or unfotunately the Fiat horn button is still intact!

I've come to the conclusion that it could be some Custom-built car built on a Fiat 1100 chassis? That could explain the Fiat horn button and the rims...plus this car has an ADX regn. (late 60s) so might be based on a 1100 D?
The gearbox again seems to be from a Herald, as I'd seen the gearstick the last time.

Steering wheel (and maybe dash?) appears to be Dolphin??

An early-generation Datsun Sunny Coupe seems to have donated it's body to this surgical experiment for an automotive Frankenstein!

Looks to be the same car. IIRC, it had an MH-03 registration as well. The car has been featured here. (Alfa Romeo 153....corrected 164)

And a worse Alfa Romeo was posted here Alfa Roasteo. (Alfa Romeo 166 spotted in Mumbai!)

P.S: I have been warned that some of our distinguished BHP-ians who love FIATs will "Decend like a Hawk" as soon as I upload these pictures!

Check out the one on the left which didn't even get updated with the black characters on white background number plate.

Sir,

Where are the cars located? If you can give details any classic collecter
can save these cars from being scrapped. It is very important to give
location along with photos, which may be noted by all the members.
We all must try to save these cars from being scrapped.

Sir,

I fail understand why owners of these cars don,t want to sell them. I think they are mad in some way. If they are attached to these cars either they should prevent their cars from rotting or give these cars to any collector who will restore and give a new life to these cars. Atleast they can be happy that their car is taken care of and in good health. I hereby appeal to owners of all the junk cars to dispose them to prevent their cars from dying.

@pro's : need your opinion on how restorable this car is, how much one should pay, etc. I intend picking it up once I have some cash to spare.
Sir,

This car is very much restorable, if you are not buying it pleae let me know I am interested in this car. This car belongs to my city -NAGPUR
Prevent this car from being scrapped at any cost.

Hi Anant, due to financial constraints i haven't been able to pick up that car. Please do try and save it. However, i don't know the current location / condition of the car.
