its been there for at least 5 to 7 years, that's how long iv been seeing it there, does have an engine but lots missing on it. also missing the glass winding mechanism, etc. be very sure you get legal ownership if you do pick it up. these cars are sold by ndmc as scrap and not to be put back on the road.everyone around knows this car , its no secret, there have to be some issues, that's why nobody has picked it up yet. if i remember, it used to be silver and had a maharashtra registration, i might have a pic of this car taken in about 1987/88 when it was last known to be on road, pic was taken in golf links

yes awini from the looks of the car i knoew it had to be standing there for more than 6 years atleast. in this time frame i dont think anything can be a secret. if i could find it not being from delhi and not being told by anyone i am sure you and the other collectors would know about it. i understand that there has to be something seriously wrong that no one has bought it till now.
if the car is a golf links car then i know who to catch, i think i used to see the car when i would come here for holidays to my aunts place.
please do post pictures of the car if you can find them.
also saw a yellow MG b in golf links but since it was in a cover i did not take pictures.
