Found out about the Debonair.
As i had said, the transmission is crashed. Dont know exactly what is the problem. He wants to sell it at 1 lac. If someone is genuinely interested ill take the trouble of negotiating

I believe the Debonair was sold only in Japan. So you guys know where you might have to source parts from.

So how did it find its way into India then?
Could have been imported by a NRI returning from Japan. How convenient that all cars in Japan are RHD.

Letting my imagination run wild, it might as well have been a Japanese consulate car which got scrapped in the open market, when no longer wanted. No offense to anybody.

Or it could have been brought by a Japanese ex-pat working here, who would have chosen not to take it back on leaving India and thus it got sold here?

Default To reduce the size of the pictures

Hi,

Use a freeware called JPEG optimiser to reduce the size and post them. It handles jpeg/jpg, bmp and tiff files.

Please read "How to upload photographs" in the ANNOUNCEMENTS section - there is a post in that thread specifically about easy ways to resize images before uploading.

The car on the left is a 47-48 Morris 8, and on the right is an Austin (10?) from around that period, possibly earlier too.

Car on the left is Morris 8 E series produced between 1938 to 1948
and Austin 10 seems to be of 40's I am not sure. I have Morris 8 E (1948)
and I am looking for front grille, my car grille is damaged.

If my memory serves me right, I recall more pics. of the same cars being posted here by someone else long ago. 'could be made out that they both are far too gone- atleast bodily- to restore.

At the left is a Morris 8 from 1948, and the right one is an Austin 10 of very close vintage. My Grand uncle had a Wolseley 8 of 1948, similar in body to the Morris except that it had external (not flush) headlights, and a different (typically Wolseley) grille. I have pleasant memories of riding this baby in my school days, and she would cause quite a stir wherever we went.
My Dad bought the car later, and we had her for a few years, before - I don't know what happened !
I still have the Wolseley's R.C. book preserved for posterity !!!

Incidentally my grandfather at IIT Powai used to drive a similar Wolseley. BMY 6*** I forget at the moment. No pics unfortunately. It was sold to a driving school back in the 70s itself. Congress biggie Jairam Ramesh (who lived next door) learned to drive on that car.
