Saw this rusting in peace in front of an old house, whose state appeared to be an extension of the car.

That said, this one isn't from the 'Sixties. It looks relatively recent.

The registration is Bombay, the late 'Seventies.
Couldn't it have been re-registered in the late seventies after moving from another state ?.

Of course, yes.

It is possible. A look at the RC will help matters. But looking how haphazardly the numbers have been painted, I'll doubt if any valid FC Certificate & RC books are present/updated.

An Oldsmobile . The interesting observation by me is that from so many cars of this model more and more are appearing in the south. This is certainly number 14 that I have seen or come to know of in the last couple of years. In different state of health. Any more pics ?

Cheers

Had been spotted by John Milne some years ago at the same spot. However this car is destined to die a slow death.

Sadly, the car isn't for sale. The same person, supposedly, also owns a 'spoke wheeled old car'. Both the cars are rusting away, but still, he's adamant on not selling them. :(
