This is not a Ford for sure . Engine is a six cylinder . Guess could be a Chevy . Suggest go to the Pranlal Bhogilal link or thread . He has a rumble seat Chevy. Do check characteristics of this with that.

Cheers

Based on the rear shape and 6 cylinder engine, I would like to hazard a guess that this is a 1932 Chevrolet Coupe. From 1933, the rear shape was more tapered

Having established it is a coupe, but seeing what appears to be B pillars and the uneven copping at that back, I would guess this was a hard top coupe.

With the hard top, there were either 3 window or 5 window coupes. Typically the 3 window coupes have a longer door. Secondly the hole on the rear both sides further adds to the confusion, whether this is a hard or a soft top, as this was possibly based for the folding mechanism.

With the help of Google Baba, this is possibly a 1932 Chevrolet Confederate 3 Window Coupe. Very rare body style, if my guess is right

These 2 cars are dying the natural way, the black elegant was once an all original car, now just the air filter is original.

The white one has few more rare bits still on her.

Both not for sale, both have come here for restoration. But I am 100% sure they will end up being scrapped.

Some rare bits and bolts on the Select, left in open to rot. Not for sale, not for parts and we will not preserve these rare parts 😢

Find this Toyota abandoned in cellar at Gujarati Galli area, Hyderabad.

It is a LHD Toyota Camry (?).

It's a Toyota Cressida X60/70(?).

So Hyderabad and LHD, must have been a Gulf import.

(Sigh)

Ah. Those park bench bumpers are US regulation requirements. So a US import to the gulf states, and then a TR perhaps?

Couldn't say for sure.

The Cressida was the export model of the Mark II sold in Japan.
There were multiple styling variants for different markets.

For example the '81 Cressida (X60) we had in Riyadh had UK/Aussie/NZ, basically RHD market styling and interiors, but it was LHD and had US regulation thick bumpers.

At the same time, there was a USDM spec Cressida also on the GCC market, just like the one above with different front styling and interiors.

So in short the 80s Cressidas sold in GCC were a mishmash of different market spec features. Only common thing was the platform and the fact that all were Made in Japan.
