on the contrary karl, the entire car can be rebuilt,but at a price, because everything is availible for a bugatti.
jrd had a type 35!! about 20 bugattis came to india, if mr bhogilal has one then there are at least four left in india,as there is a brescia in delhi,the jodhpur junk,and the mallya car. i have heard rumors of a petit royale saloon, but have seen no evidence of it over the years, same with rumors of a duesenberg and a cadillac V12.
also, karl, the holker duesenberg is not an ssj, its an sjn, the long wheelbase chassis!!

awini the jodhpur once apon a time bugatti can be easyly built you do get all the parts for it. my father had asked these gentleman if they wanted to sell the car and they had refused. at that point my father had inquired and it was all available.
i too have heard of the duesenberg and the cadillac v12 but have had no luck in finding them. checked with all big collectors and with some of the royal households too. the cadillac was rumoured to be part of the nizam of hyderabads collection. dont know how true it is.

Gawd Delhi has a treasure trove of these classics man. I already want almost all of them What can I do if Im so greedy!!!
Ishan I distinctly saw two-three MB jeeps in the back ground of the two Buicks you posted...... details bhaijaan!! Hum Desperate hain Jaani (Raaj Kumar's tone).
Speedy, nice to see a pic of you after so much time brother. Kya pose hai with the faux Leapord skin steering cover. That classic Lincoln is worth dying for man. I mean the one which was posted earlier. Ishan is the Olds for sale.

Firstly, I make the following post not as any expert but as a fellow enthusiast. The Catalina throughout its life never came in any other engine but an eight. The earlier were Flat eights and the later ones V-8 except in and from 1977 In an effort to lighten weight and improve gas mileage, the company in 1977 plonked in an entry level, standard V-6 (and optional V-8s)borrowed from the Buick. The wagons still came only with V-8.
The earlier Catalinas were available only with V-8s which were of two types, the 235 hp and thebored out and more powerful 283 hp. This distinction was so that the lower hp engine couldrun on Regular fuel.

Speedy, go to the post you want to add and right click on the post number (on the top right hand side of each post..permalink ####.).
Select copy link from drop down options you get when you right click. Then go to the place you want to add this link to and right slick again and select paste. your job is done. The link will appear and when one clicks on the link he/she will be directed to the post you want them to see.

Thanks V 16 , that's what I thought , the Pontiac had a straight 8 or a V 8 till the early sixties .

Jay D that answers your question , the person trying to sell this car does not seem to be above board . The warning was for the new entrants to beware if this car turns up in Delhi.
(Most of the cars from Lucknow seem to find a market in Delhi & Chandigarh)
and No I do not know the price being asked for this car.
