Came across this '59 on a Facebook group:

Looks pretty clean

What is really funny (appalling rather) is that the owner has parked it in the centre of the road to click the photographs

Is this the same car which was in Karnataka in Auto India . A fabulous car then and still looks like today . That is if it's the same car - it was the same shade and if not mistaken with a one inch whitewall and had stock interiors . If I remember right different type of wheel caps

Will dig those snaps . Any idea who owns it today

Cheers

This car is in Jaipur with the Roshan Motor collection, owned by Mr. Harcharan Laiker, he owns more than 20 vintage and classic cars. I don't know anything else about the history of this car.

Noticed another odd thing: the LEFT in the left hand drive is flipped. Wonder why?
At first glance, thought the picture was flipped

It certainly is a 1959, and an absolute treasure in its condition. The backwards "L" gives it ambiance. Stateside it would likely bring 25000 to 40000 $US, depending on engine and drive train. Were it a tri-power 409 it would jump to over 100000 $US.

Interesting no doubt. But how is it connected with any car, vintage or otherwise?

It may be having an automobile engine an aircooled one,say a VW engine.
This photo maybe of the 70's and not 50's.
the real intention of the post seems to be something else
