Nice find Shreeram. The car is standing 100 meters away from Kothrud Bus Depot. Just out of Bhusari colony.

Default SPOTTED: But what Car?

Seen this at Ulsoor,

The car is very original and unique, but could not make out what make this is.

As per my guess it looks like a Plymouth.

Car's supposedly up for sale, mech at that workshop was quoting anything upto 75k for this gem guys,

Anybody game for this.Has got all original fittings and engine intact.




This will be a great guess.

While I am not able to identify this car, and I believe a fellow TBHPian will soon do that, butttt if all attempts fail please take a close look at the logo that's in the front grill and compare it here:
Cartype : AAV logo

Nothing but trial-n-error...

The second one is a Merc (prior 1970, most probably 1962~1967).

Hi!!! nice find pavan! The first one is a 1956-57 dodge kingsway. The second one is a mercedes 190/190D from 1961-67. I feel its a 190 and not a 200, as it has indicators on the front wing.


Can u get more details on the kingsway pls?

Default Barn Find Literally

BARN FIND IN MUMBAI

These just came up..... a friend now has woken up after 15 years of pestering to either restore these cars or sell them..(no guesses to whom)
Jokes apart, but atlast, hes woken up. After hearing what each will cost to restore, I hope he'll not want to go back to sleep...and before someone asks... No they are not for sale
















And outside the Barn...







...that was my W123, not part of the barn...







Pssst... Please keep a watch as some one is bound to ask,if they are for sale or not.

Those cars are really beautiful and Im sure they would look even better once done. I doubt if all 4 are going to be restored though.

IIRC that's a Heckflosse, our fellow members V-16 & Vcash both own one of these but of course, they are in much better nick.
