These split vans were going out of India at a fast pace, so I decided to save one for myself.
Then this came along with the rear curved glass, I took this and passed on the other to a fellow t-bhpian. Now there are two splitties lying in this shed in Pune. Restoration will start after a few years, after I get my act together.

Cheers harit

Since the two are together, then this is a third one. Don't waste time, go get her!
Here is a restored Splitty in Germany, a medical van. Lying behind is a dummy, was used for demo purpose.

It was nice having you over, Manish ,we could talk cars and Scale models.
Like I mentioned, since already three cars and two bikes are under restoration,
I may have to wait a while before taking up something more.

I am going to Mangalore on the 8th for to days. If you can PM me the adress or number of the owner, i will go and try mu luck.

Re the Splitty, boss, if you think some more, it will be gone. Trust me i was negotiating for two some time ago and by the time i went to see the cars they were gone...to NewZealand i was told. There will be a dearth of Splittys soon (as there isn't already a dearth) If you spot one for sale, go get it. The rear lamp cluster is from a Bay window, a much later model You will get the correct ones, brand new from Germany.
