I agree with Stanher...I too thought the Cranbrook was only offered by Plymouth...the equivalent Dodge of the time was probably the Kingsway.

i thought so too till i saw pictures of this car. maybe dodge badged the car a cranbrook for other markets. all search results point to the plymouth cranbrook and not dodge cranbrook.

Heres the 46 Dodge at the 2006 Bombay rally. She seems quite nice to me.

Yes the blue one is a Dodge Kingsway sedan and not a Cranbrook. Dodge never made a Cranbrook and only Plymouth came as a CranbrookThe guy is looking to sell these.. and fast. Any offer above 1.75 for the Blue dodge is acceptable but if one really wants it i could ask for 1.5-1.6 though i doubt it a lot. The red one is not for sale as yet as the papers have not arrived. Last he wanted for it was 4.5 lakhs which is absurd. He also wanted 2.75 for the kingsway but i think time has taught him not to be so unreasonable. The car will go in a few days so anyone interested, do let me know fast.

Note: pic. taken with permission hence not blanking out the regn.

hey nice finds stanher. the kingway and this baby austin look real nice. the other two austins one of which you can see in the picture is also a convertible and looks restorable to me. does the owner plan to restore it or use them as a donor car.
there are two baby austins convertibles here in delhi being restored.

Speedy & AMATMO, the garage folks said the one just behind this one is to be restored.....the 3rd one behind that looked junked beyond restoration....but we can never say....who knows!
Those 2 look like ideal candidates for a 'modified vintage' as discussed in that thread.....
