Welcome to the forum.

Where is the restoration happening ? In Trivandrum or Bangalore ? Please start a separate thread on the restoration and put up lots of pictures. Its a lovely car actually - from pictures it looks like a Third Generation Cornet - 1955-56 ?

I am posting the picture from Hemmigs Motors site - something for you to aspire for or standardise on

All the Best & Drive/Ride Safe

That's a Dodge Kingsway 1956-57 assembled in India. Or max a Special Deluxe

All the best and enjoy the car. Have you got all the glasses rubbers etc.

Cheers

I'm glad to see that this car has survived. Here are pics of your car in 2008.

Hey Congrats!! I used to see this almost on a daily basis and was hoping someone would give her a new home...It was just thrown on the roadside for a long time. Do you know that place has closed down and looks like demolition work will start soon? He also had a Hillman, Landmaster etc..
Hope you will turn her into a stunner!!

The ones available here are only the 2 wheel drive ones and all have diesel engines fitted. Rates would vary depending on body condition but would mostly be in the area of 40,000 to 75,000

I'll be there again in a couple of weeks.
I'll ask what is the status of it.
But it really looks too far gone now.

'been seeing this high-bonnet Willys (CJ 3B?) sitting outside a garage for a atleast a year. Looks quite decent, maybe hasnt found takers yet due to being an out-of-state regn.
