Just got to see this.

A sad sight indeed! How could they drive it around in that state?!

'hope it was being driven to a workshop or something...it might still be restorable.

And 'hope it wasnt deliberately 'done up' this way for some movie!

Seen this old Dodge with a On Test plate in Marol yesterday. It looked like the car was actually being put to test during peak hours. The size of the car and the loud horn was enough for the tiny ricks to give it way

Does this belong to a Team-BHPian?

This lovely 1946 Dodge convertible has a convential three forward speed gearbox coupled with a fluid drive that works and I believe belongs to a gentleman in Panvel. It seems as if she is being checked out for the forthcoming rally.The owner I think is of the same vintage or older.

Default dodge - custom royal badge

which model is this? i spotted this car near the international airport heading towards bandra. the car was in mint condition and drove like a breeze. the guy driving it was oblivious to the world checking out the car. he just drove with a poker face.
MODS - i hope this is not against the forum rules

This is haritji's Dodge Custom Royal.I believe it should be a 1959 model. The car must pass the fitness standards set up by him to enter the Mumbai Rally thats round the corner.
Another example of this car is shown here.

Fitness failed, car not entered.

Whats wrong with the number? Lifetime tax paid in Mumbai
The model posted by Anjan is the same, but there are a few differences. I had only one ORVM, colour scheme on my car is original, no white on lower hald of side, and my car neve had a bonnet mascot.

Triumph yes but not a Mayflower at all- that was only two-door and had a different headlamp design. I think this one was known as the Renown.
