Hi Sir,

It looks extremely similar to this picture put up here; http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...ml#post1848011 (Dashboard Pictures of Vintage and Classic Cars) , hence thought it was a 1936 ford V8. The wheel maybe from an early fiat, my two cents worth.

regards,

Srinand.

It's a Ford V8. Same car has been discussed on the same thread earlier :

I know of 3 hot rod'ed or soon to be rod'ed Fords in Blr. One was a Ford model CX tourer with 118NE engine, drivetrain and wheels, now sold on outside Blr, I believe (I have pics somewhere). Two other Ford model Y sedans await their turn for a rod-resto.
Not sure if you are referring to any of these cars. Is the car you speak of a Ford V8 or a model Y / CX ?

Dont think it a Fiat Balilla but stand corrected if it is. I will also vote for the Ford. The rims scream Ford. Fiats never had this design of Rims. Ford Did so unless this is adorning wrong rims, i think its a Ford too.

Doc had a Ford V-8 or B tourer which was beyonf help. for which he bought a V-8 sedan for merging 2 cars. Project was not taken up, cars deteriorated, I don't know the present status.
Ford Y were such terrible cars that they are the first to get the treatment. One day these will also be rare.

Two fire tenders rotting at Nagpur here. These can be identified as an imported Bedford and a Dodge/ Fargo.

Kasli : I am not sure where these are parked. But its evident that these are government owned and must be lying just like that, pending all official formalities to be completed for their disposal.

That Bedford has got such an Aura surrounding it. It seems that he is just waiting there looking forward to a Rescue .

Skip, is the old Bedford's photograph inverted, by any chance? I'm asking because of the LHD configuration. Or is it not a Bedford?

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

Attachment 282419

The pick up has been dieselised, though still seems worth restoring. Not for sale.
Hi Karl,
Would you know of something similar for sale (Willys Pickup). I would love to restore one of those. There's one on classifieds for sale but that is WAY over my budget.
Cheers
