Great Microbus Spitfire. Congratulations. Looks all there.
Myself looking for one. Looks like a mid seventies. Looking forward to a thread dedicated to its restoration.

Spitfire,

Thats a great Baywindow bus.

But thats supposed to be 1969-1970.

Anyways i am close to get hold of one similar to this.

Good to have company.

Will let you know once i get it home.

Is this in mumbai?
No RJ, the car does not belong to me & is not in Mumbai either. She belongs to someone in Delhi & was restored at the garage that I use to service my cars.

Might I voice my humble opinion? The modern wheels would look alot better on your 61 Impala rather than the Biscayne.
Karl, the Biscayne is now in your town!! its at Davis for restoration and paint etc. You may go and have a look whenever! and give me some personal tips and opinion on what needs to be done and colour i should opt for etc.

It has been abandoned by the owner at the Garage which carried out the restoration for dispute over the bill. Thats where I come in
Lets see, Im trying to get this one but seems a little difficult and unlikely now.
