Here is a beautifully restored 1937 Austin 10 four door Tourer. Rare four door body style in India. The car was restored by BHPian, Ravi Kapur.

I saw the Hudson and Packard at Sofitel BKC last week. The Hudson is a regular during the Vintage Car Meets. I have had a chance to see it in Pune as well during a vintage & classic car rally last year.

This is probably the only GTR Egoist Edition in India. Initially owned by Sachin Tendulkar, it is now a part of a bhpian's garage.

Sourced from FB this beautiful 1957 Chevrolet Belair Convertible.

What a desirable car with its big fins and convertible body style.

I am not aware of if there is another car of this body style in India.

Guys, which vintage car is this?? The person(in Blazer) was drunk, and was talking all nonsense about the car. He said its Morris. When I further asked Minor?? He said Minor or Major I don't know in an angry tone

Don't think its a Bel Air dash belongs from a 210, the below is an authentic Bel Air Dash

It looks like a Morris eight from the early fourties.

No Wasif, what you are saying partly correct. The dash is correct for a Fisher bodied car. In 1957, out of the 47562 convertible coupe cars manufactured, only 2434 cars were Fisher bodied

Here is the Fisher Bodied car's dash as per brochure

This Oldsmobile has been in a family in Rajasthan from new, sadly the owner now wants to replace the engine with that of a Tavera, though he has been told and warned against doing the same.

Hope good sense prevails.

Yes indeed hope good sense prevails. Change of engine from petrol to diesel is not permitted. Secondly he can exchange this car with an excellent condition Travera or the likes and save himself of all the hassle and enjoy airconditioned comfort n reliablity of a modern car.

As much as I would like to keep an old car as original as possible, I would not mind having a old shell with a modern engine and drivetrain and use it as a daily driver. If only I could afford one...
