The car is indeed being restored, I was shown photos of it being transported. No idea who owns it though. I hope he is reading this.

A rotting Standard 20 spotted in Kolkata - the body has just collapsed,telescopically, but note the seats that are in place, indicating that the platform/ chassis are crooning "all is well" .

Tyres still seem to hold air, possible that the collapse is a result of some dump truck dumping the debris that can be seen under the steering, besides and in front of the van.

This appears to be the later version called the 'Micro'. The bodyshells on this model always seemed cheap and flimsy to me, and were apparently prone to the tinworm!
Yet there used to be many of these around in Hyd. when I was growing up, and of course Madras. None to be seen even there now.

Is this a classic? Nobody seems to have collected these vans, and I have not seen one in any collection, but then I have not seen all collections. Anything old need not be a classic. Just wondering.

I think one should pick them up before people start asking silly money for them

Apparently, the Chevy is now up for sale (as per a post of fb). https://www.facebook.com/AbmKaleemAutomobiles

Hope it's ok to post this information here; if it helps the seller. I was interested in the car earlier, but not any longer.

It seems the chatter has made the administrator of the page delete the photograph listing

Haha, not surprising; these guys and their curious ways!! Shivraj, could you please share what else was said there, since I'd logged off after my comment on the page on fb and didn't read what ensued. Maybe PM me, email or call, since continuing on the discussion here might be considered OT by the admins here.

'happened to find these cars sitting at a local dealership/workshop-a 60s Austin A40 Farina, '56 Plymouth and 2 other cars beside it not visible clearly (a pre-war Vauxhall and what looks like a '50s Fiat 1100)
No idea about the story behind them. Hopefully they are WIP!

Wow that's more like a Barn find.
Be ready for many queries on these beauties.
Can see Fiat with missing windshield, open door and NO paint

Just one request. Is it possible to get individual car's photos?

Raab rakha.
