some of the cars on that thread are beyond doing anything about and some can be turned into projects.

a car that can be restored should be restored perfectly giveing the cars their due respect they deserve.

  2. Plymouths that were badged as Dodges. (example Dodge Kingsway Deluxe was an export badging of Plymouth Savoy. There was never any Dodge Kingsway Deluxe its home in the USA)
And I suspect there were also Plymouths that were badged as DeSoto for export. They are different from the genuine US DeSotos.

Important landmarks in the history of PREMIER:
  • Pioneered the manufacture of commercial vehicles of well known brands, Dodge, Fargo for use by the Defence Department of Government of India. The first such vehicle was rolled out at Kurla works on 15th March, 1947
  • Pioneered the assembly of popular and well known passengers cars like Dodge, Desotos and Plymouth at Kurla works
Source: Premier Limited

According to some other website, in 1947 two vehicles were built at the Kurla plant, under several brand names - a Plymouth car and a Dodge truck, the car was sold as DeSoto, Plymouth and Dodge and the truck as Dodge, Fargo and DeSoto. Fargo was the brand for trucks sold by Plymouth dealers.

How come its gone so bad in a coupla months??!
Or is it being done up? The tail-lamps look they've been taken off rather than being damaged.

shocked are you stanher. this is what can happen in a few months if you dont care about the car. the tail light sure does look like it has been taken off but you never know. by the way the car is for sale.

i think the message must have already gone to his ears. i had told my brother and gogi bhai to inform him.
same here have my hands full at the moment. have just taken one and have three more to go. then i stop buying for a while unless something exceptionally tempting comes up. going to concentrate on restoreing the cars.
