I found them close to Hassan in Karnataka (I can't give you more details). I enquired if they were ready to sell any of them at a price - seems like vintage lovers have to be disappointed again.

wow rockster thats a great find. have to agree with the kingsway suburban being quite rare and if well kept would look like the picture posted by Jayd. i guess another car that we need to be dissapointed about, since the owners will not sell but let the car rott away.
could you talk to them to atleast restore it or store it decently and try to preserve it.
