Not sure if this deserves to be here. For starters, its fibre glass, so it can't really 'rust in piece'. And then, I'm not sure if it is, or will ever be a 'classic'.
So, Karl, pls do the needful.

Dunno what Karl decides, but surely we can accommodate one "corrode in piece" car on the thread?

This is the Sipani Dolphin (two door), the best out of all jewels the company created over the years. A very nice car and worth restoring if it had everything.

A person there said that the owner has rejected many a lucrative offer and intends to donate the car to the Dharmasthala museum. There may yet be hope for this Standard.

Well he better do that soon! Else it may not be possible to take in one piece to the museum anymore!

The lenses certainly aren't. This is what the original tail lenses looked like:

Yes! This was what I meant when I said Amby-ish twin pod lights!
Were the ones I spotted an accessory, perchance?

I doubt that too. They're some kind of custom-fit alteration.

Oh! I thought they looked too neat, what with the hump at the centre, to be a jugaad. But what do I know..?
