The Landmaster with the morris engine looks rather good. and reasonable too, if anyone has the time space and money to save this car it would be great.
Landmaster came with side valve engine . If it has that engine then that car is really buyable.
Not a fan of german cars, but have heard from brokers that there are a coupel of beettles in same place where the car in the olx ad is

Anyway, this ad is quite old. I know this car very well and have even posted about it earlier, go through these posts and pics. and you will probably know why I'm not keen to pick it up at the price he is quoting for it:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...ml#post1366699 (Standard cars in India)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...ml#post1373402 (Standard cars in India)

Not going into much details in this thread but the guy had contacted me a year or so ago saying that he got someone ready to pay him 1.3L for this car on the spot and so wanted to ask me if I was interested in picking it up @ 20k more! 'told him I wasnt.
Then he called me up a month or two ago regarding some spares for old fiats...asked him about this car and he said he still did. Not surprised that it hasnt been sold!
I dont want to dwell any further on this car as it makes me feel quite sad (again if you've read my posts above, you will understand!)

And incidentally, I'm no longer looking for such cars either. I'd even sold my Pennant and my Companion (the latter is in good hands now, with a fellow tbhpian and good friend, and getting restored)

Though not a proper classic (or is it?), came across these advertisements.

Yes that's true, There are some vintage car keepers in that area, i know one of them is a dentist Dr.Philip, he had a Mercedes Benz W110 which I bought from him back in 2003, when he acquired a mint condition Mercedes Benz W111 (which he still has) and wanted more space.
I know he has a genuine beetle but I'm not sure if he would sell it because I know he took great effort and imported parts from the US and Germany to maintain its originally and quality .

Few landmaster's available for sale; http://www.olx.in/nf/search/landmaster. One of the ad say

"Hindusthan Landmaster fitted with toyota 1-C diesel engine same(5 1)gearbox, new amby grand rear differential, front disk breakes,new A/C compresser,tinted glass."

Interesting!

And I am sure this link will be useful to any Mark I restorers if they are looking for meter boards, bonnet, etc.,;

i once saw this car standing at a garage few years back. Its a properly executed restoration. didnt look like any corners were cut. the car looked showroom fresh no matter where you looked.

This ad is a BIG TIME SCAM

I received quite a few replies from the seller, and the whole ad was staged and is indirectly linked to a t-bhpían and a known dealer in Bangalore.

Would love to remain unquoted on the whole thing, but hilarious to witness a car sold which never existed and never was sold.

Sir, the intentions are very very clear, by the so called dealers. Bring down the market for the VW's, ( presently VW market have dried up ) which in-turn will facilitate them in buying cars at lower rates.

As and when these so called dealers want to reliquish their possession, they will again inflate the prices. Just playing around with the market.

And this is a perfect example of what Pavan Kadam is talking about.

This is of course a year-old ad now but...a fiat 1100 select available for an unbelievable price!!

Very original car too, had to be the best bargain ever! Unless this was something like that low-priced Beetle scam!

Actually the low priced beetle in no scam. I have the full pictures of the car. It was genuinely sold for a low price. The car was obviously not run for some time and in another few years would have gone into the ground. May be the owner did not pick up the demand for beetles. It does happen sometimes.

Cheers
