I recall seeing a similar car in a similar colour combo around 12-15 years back in Kolkata and a deep purple AC Cobra. Was later sold out of Kolkata. Was the Healey ever in Kolkata, anyone knows?

Hi Srinand, that was not his question. This car is not the same from Kolkata, the Kolkata car went from Kolkata to Delhi to Rajasthan.

Cheers harit

Hi Sir,

Sorry for the miscommunication, i did not intend to answer any one post in particular just thought i would put up the link with the pictures of cars present in the other thread. As i quickly read through and there was a question, if there were front view pics and so on. My apologies once again if it has led to confusion or sounded irrelevant.

regards,

Srinand.

Friends, I am very excited to share with you some pics of this dream machine. It belongs to a good friend of mine in Bombay who has recently finished restoring this car, which was apparently in pretty bad shape when they got it 3 years back. I am also told that it's an ex-Jaipur royal family car.

It's a 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible, sometimes also referred to as the Coupe de ville convertible. Power windows, steering, top and seats. And of course automatic transmission. This was the most expensive Caddy in the Series 62 lineup in '49, the pillarless hardtop Coupe de ville was $26 cheaper.

Hope you all enjoy the pics.

Cheers

I bow to this!

A lot of modern cars are called beautiful, the Astons, the jags, but this?
That picture in profile with the top down, its "organically" beautiful.
(Anybody getting this?? )

Great car and A+ restoration job! Kudos to your friend Prithvi. Hope this gives an insight to what I expect you to do in the cars you restore.

Cheers

Something tells me at the back of my mind this car moved from Indore to Pune to???....
Such cars don't just pop out of the box. But I may still be wrong.

Yes it does have some lineage . Ex Barwani car

Same car in bad shape featured a while back. Nice restoration . Like combo sans the tan top it should have been black.the front parking light I have a doubt that's all as I think it's what came on the coupe nit convertible . Attached a snap of the other 49 of Mr bhogilal

Surfed the net to find out about this point. For this particular car, these side lamps are correct, as they are for most convertibles of 1949. It was only the early 1949 cars that had the type of lamps that you have shown in the 2 pics. I'm putting up 2 pics for reference.

As far as the top is concerned, been through a lot of images and haven't as yet come across a black car with a black top for this model. Most of the dark body colours seem to have tan tops.
