since this thread is for disintegrating classics, i dunno if this would be of interest to any of you to take on as a project and restore her?saw an Opel Cadett, late 60's for sale in Goa, its going for 10k currently, if you need to check it out have a look on ebay.co.in. the bids are on.thanks

Thats definitely an Isuzu Gemini coupe from the late 70's. It was also made under the Holden name. But since its a LHD it could be an American Model. But its an Isuzu for sure. Cant go wrong on that typical jap shape. Ram our resident expert on Jap cars would be able to shed a detailed spotlight on it i'm sure.

it's definately a offshoot of the kadett...isuzu gemini definately was....i would definately pick this up...its got potential to be a really funky car paint it a 70's yellow or a orange and you've got got yourself a looker......i would have preferred a fast back version though...what say gogi...speedy is this car for sale??

the car stands alone with no one to take resposibility for it. i did inquire around the place but no one seems to know anything about the car or where it came from. so to the best of my knowledge i dont know if it is for sale or not.

not heavy duty amatmo just normal. i know the blue isuzu has been left on the road with no one claiming the car. the yellow ford has an owner but has no left or moved from the spot in over 2 months.
the isuzu has maruti wheelcaps and the ford has a maruti steering wheel. both have a maruti connection.

i know it is restorable amol. hardly and car made that we cant restore. remember i am possible (immposible). except for the shape of the ford i do not like anything. the same owner has a mercedes and a chevy both the cars are in excellent condition and always in a cover and parked in the shade inside the house. this one stands outside. if you are looking at a reasonable down to earth price for this if the owner does agree to sell her, then you are dreaming.

This is definately a Ford Capri, actually a Type-I Capri with a 1.6 litre engine trying hard to emulate a type-II 3.0 V6 with quad lamps and faux grille and bumpers from the Contessa I presume. The original came with rectangular lamps and was a ticker to drive. My dad owned one, a 1972 1.6 GT. The quad lamps came in as a face change in 1975 though a lot of older gen cars have had their face lifts and heart transplants but i seriously doubt this is one of them. Even the rear lights from the Sumo are pathetic. This is a LHD so if it is a V6 then it must be a Ghia Bodied car with an automatic transmission as most were sold in this configuration. The original 3.0 litre would also have a spoiler on the rear boot. Please note the exhaust pipe and the rear numebr plate lights from the Maruti 800??
