Thanks sidman, Yes I did read that article in the links you gave. Which is why I was asking what wouldve happened of the last surviving sister.
She seemed to be so attached to the house that was a gift from her father so wondering if she is still.....you know! And if she still feels the same about the house which now seems vacant, and of course the car as well! :sigh: my heart goes out to both!

SirAleck this LandRover is obviously not cared for and needs a caretaker like you.
Be rest assured you will find no rust on her as the body is all Aluminum. Please inform us of the good news that you have succeeded in taking her under your caring wing.

i dont really know which car it is ...
i'm seeing this car in the same place same position from the last 8 years at a local garage in borivli...i asked him whos the owner

he said "arre lonavala ka party hai,Nahi bechega,tumhare jaisa 50 collector log aake gaya,"

but the car looks 70's style...
there was no naming etc on the car
check out the kind of rear view mirrors
and the paint is 2 tone and orignal
the interiors are awesome leather seats and leather steering wheel
the car next to it is another rusting beauty

Guru's please throw some light on this car

Default 1979 Mitsubishi Debonair 2600 Executive SE A33

This is a 1979 Mitsubishi Debonair 2600 Executive SE A33.

The Debonair was Mitsubishi's flagship executive sedan in the Japanese domestic market from 1964 through 1999, spanning three different generations of design. As big as a Toyota Crown or Datsun/Nissan Cedric, it was more exclusive than either of them.

Early Debonairs were powered by the twin-carb Mitsubishi 1,991cc, KE64 6-cylinder engine, which developed 105 bhp @ 5000 rpm.

This specimen appears to be a 1979 model with the 2600 cc 4-cylinder Saturn engine.

Bang on Ram. This car is standing in Chotu's Garage at Borivilli. Where I had givrn my W116 for repairs when i had just bought it. This car is devoid of papers and was in mint condition. I have driven it for a week or so till i realised it had no papers. It was settled for rs 75,000/- Sadly due to some problem between the actual owner and the dealer, this car is rotting where it is today. Believe me when I say it was mint. You could drive it from here to London.
Sad real sad.

Possibility no 1: Well i presume that like many deals its a deal gone sour. This car must be an advance payment (in a probable exchange deal) which may have gone sour for various reasons. I feel that the car has been forfeited fro want of completion of the deal and hence no papers. Notice no number plates.
Possibility number 2: My sources tell me that the transmission was spoilt but was subsequently made. Maybe the paper issue has been solved but the payment to the garage is yet outstanding so the car just stands there. I can find out as i know the owner (supposed) of the car who is a crook. Lets see maybe the car can be got for a good deal but im not interested. Ill try and get info for you Jubin.

I've seen a car rusting around Orbit Hospital after Dahisar Check Naka. Looks like a Merc front, but not sure what exactly was the model. Does anyone else know the details?
