karl got it you are right it is a citroen. the records had it written austin. what you see in the picture is all there is to the car nothing else.

Jayd the car is too small to be a corvair. the station wagon just has ariner or something on the back that too with a letter missing. i think it was a chevy.

thanks egangsta i thought it was a landmaster.

JayD it looks like a Fiat Abarth Coupe to me.....call for Karlos Singh Fiatwala....!!

The station-wagon is a Ford Taunus Turnier (German Ford)...the (T)URNIER lettering on the tailgate rang a bell & I at once googled using the name ('could find only pics. of 4-door turniers though):

And uh, speedy, the "Pontiac" I would say is actually a Plymouth Belvedere.....
Sad to see these cars though....but on the bright side, you've got a far more abundant supply of spares when you want them, unlike over here...!

Btw, the next time you go there, could you ask if he'd give you the side-patti off the herald (if its a scrap car)?? There is one left on the left rear wing, seen in your pic....thanks!

this is the ndmc lot i was talking about in an earlier post,the fiat was a coupe, hacked into a spyder at khan market years ago, the traction there was a complete car, it is slough built and had a wood dash etc, the only thing missing was the spare wheel. i tried buying it but the then owner refused to sell. look where it is now.. so was the case with the merc coupe.

yes awini it is at the same place. as you can see the cars have been ruined and everything has been stolen and sold to the local scrap guys. i spoke to the people there and they told me that they hold auctions once in two months and since the scrap guys have a strong sindicate it is better to buy the cars from them once they have taken it. there also is a 80's 280 s w126 that is there in pretty good shape till now LHD with everything except the rear badgeing which has been taken off.
the traction is missing the front and only the cabin part is left. the fiat only has the front with part of the rear intact. there also was a 115 which has plants all around and in it with no engine only body shell. could not take pictures of it
i am thinking of taking 4 of the cars from here. what is your take on this?
i have also been told of a 1960/70 daimler limo with partition glass that i would be going to see today.
