The Yellow Heckflosse is a touch me not until you get it almost free.

The contours have been buggered to kingdom come and you will have to do a full ground up restoration project on it.. Then the issue of getting an engine and parts. Body parts you better forget, they are almost extict in India and as expensive as gold out of the country and that goes for the rubbers etc.
My tip: let both of them be until offered free.
The Heckflosse seems to have badly degraded. It was in such a pristine condition at one point of time with period accessories and decals.

Hey, but the gansta' marks remain. It still has those bullet hole stickers.

If there is one thing I can pick up from the car, it would be the steering wheel.

This Heckflosse is a classic example of a mixed breeding experiment gone wrong!!
It's got parts from everything and everywhere.
1. The minute ones first i.e. the chains hanging onto the front bumper and the pair of swords+shields on the grille which remind you of a truck!!

2. The extra lights, bullet mark stickers, very sad looking mirrors on the right and left fenders and those unnecessary eagles(?) on the bonnet make this look like a cab.

3. The hub caps would've suited any random car at least 4 decades younger, but never this!!!

4. Those are Maruti Omni ORVMs if I'm not mistaken.

EPIC FAIL!!!

Looks like the thread is diverted away discussing the originality of a vehicle.

I think we can discuss it in different thread.

Here is one Norton Dominator for sale in Mumbai.

I have had several instances where he has not been able to show the car he claimed he had to sell to name a few - Toyota Landcruiser (still advertised till recently) several Merc's. He has even cheated a friend - Sold him a flood damaged 1987 300D claiming it was a good car for a high amount- poor chap was complaining to me that Kersi misrepresented facts and sold him the car at absorbitant price of 4.5 lacs - I had seen the cars and she needed a lot of work not worth more than 2.5 lacs. The guy was crying struggling to sell her finally.

He was bragging to me once that he does rally cars and hotrods and was talking down to show he is a somebody frankly did not understand why typical 70/80's filmy arrogance I am this and that but no action = gasspot. He also got rude when you asked why his prices were way above market he got angry! Last I checked if you are dealer it is okay for customer to get angry you always maintain a cool as you want to make transactions not break relationship. He lacks phone manners

He is an old school dealer unlike guys like i.e suren a fellow member on tbh
