A 1972 Premier President that I spotted in Kolkata a few days ago. The car, as will be evident is not very original.
The paintwork (Bayers Blue) is from the late 1980's or early 1990's, when the car must have been much cared for by its owner. Maruti 800's, Omnis and Premier Padminis were quite popular in this colour shade during the late 1980's and early 1990's..

This car along with 2 other beetles were up for sale in Kollam in Kerala.
The OLX ad for these were also mentioned in the classics available thread in this forum.
Black impala is originally from Coimbatore and was owned by the family of the ExMP From Nilgiris.The car was bought by the present owner in Kollam for Rs.80000/- in 2004.The price demanded for the car when it was advertised for sale a few weeks back was Rs.800000/-.This figure is known to all those who had responded to the advt.I dont know what price it got sold for.
I seriously doubt the 21000 miles .it has definitely done much more than that because if my info is correct it was used regularly in its heydays
Also Does this car have an original valid RC?

Yes, That Pista Green Beetle was in Coimbatore , came to Bangalore in 2011, again this year Feb went to Mr Rahim at Kollam. And finally bought over by my friend Ravi last month, currently a daily driver.

His yellow Beetle is coming down here for a Restoration as Mr Rahim has decided against selling the car.

And definitely we have not paid 8 lacs on that Impala, its come at a good price, and yes it indeed has documents but needs updation for the last 6 years. Will keep you guys posted once the car lands here, its on transit

Spotted this 1946 DESOTO on the sea link a few minutes back. Was headed towards town and I think this car was for a while in Bandra, khar area.

Cheers

I was taken to see the pillarless ChevyImpalaa by a broker a few mnths ago and price demanded was six and a half lacs . There was also a Dodge Kingsway for sale there then. But broker had mentioned the Impalaa do not have papers.

Well , sorry to disappoint you, there were NO BROKERS involved in the whole process, it was Me, my friend ( Beetle owner) and, My friend ( buyer ) to take it smoothly . The papers are intact and the price is much lower than what u had quoted. There was no bargain, one simple visit by my friend is all what it took to convince the gentleman to hand it over.

A Decade ago, yes, it was in Coimbatore, before moving to Kollam - Kerala and now finally here in my city for the rest of its life.

And background work has started to get this ELEPHANT as reliable as a daily runner

Must be an old Bombay car with its BM registration. Also feel the car must have surfaced recently from hibernation now as it has probably not been seen in the rally circuits or referred to here on teambhp.

I would often see the car at Bandra, though never saw it move. Earlier pics are seen at this link.

Sir, Why should me be disappointed? When the broker took me to see the car it was not advertised for sale anywhere including the net . Then the papers was not available. Wish you good luck in getting the TN papers of the car

That is not a 1946 Desoto. The 1946 Desoto has the front mudguard running into the door - so also the Dodge. It will be much longer and with fluid drive. That is a 1946 Plymouth with the grill from a Desota. Mohaan
