Sweet pictures Ishan! I loved thd MKII more than the pink ElDorado but then again - I have an affinity for classic Jags like none other!

I am guessing that this is the garage that will be restoring your Charger in the future!

with a heavy heart, i have to agree...while it would make a great classic if in decent condition, this car looks too gone bodily to salvage....you will go bonkers trying to get it right, and spend way way too much in the process...unless you can afford to throw around some spare change running into many lakhs and really really want a white elephant like this, stay away...and flick the (incomplete) hood ornament and run!

i see traces of a Goa regn...that would explain the corrosion i suppose...goa had a surprisingly large number of caddys at one point...

You bet!! *drool*
If I could get my hands on that I could say "eat your heart out Elvis" (he had a '54 caddy but in pink too! )

I guess there are VERY FEW of these in India.

Is this one a convertible btw?

There are no proper pics. of it either.
I'm told his car had a sun-roof as well.....I suspect this one does too, hence the sheeet over the roof, under the carrier.....?
The person who bought my dad's car bought it only for using it to get some monthly petrol allowance at his office....he just dumped the car in his yard & I heard that within some time it had a tree growing through it, eventually ended up being sold piece by piece!!

No, it was the Zigma-CT, an SUV tread sold about a decade back.

No, the Jags/Perfect & DeVille are at another garage in Noida and there's not much restoration work going on on them. If I am correct about whose garage it is, he doesn't have a very good reputation among autophiles & if I post the name here most of the oldies would recognise him.

The one restoring the Eldorado (and currently working on my VTEC) will be the one restoring my Charger yes! He also has a few more beauties parked inside including a nice '60's Rolls, wait for some more pictures by tonight.

I know that she's in real bad shape as can be seen clearly in the pictures & told my friend so. But he wants a car on which he HAS to work since he wants the pain & resultant pleasure of restoring a car. Anyways like I said earlier can anyone help me source one? Not looking at this car since I know it's beyong salvageable.

No this one is a hard top IIRC. Will confirm once again today.
