Why unknown? He wants to sell a Beetle, picture taken in 2005, and he is in the photo, so when you come across him just call out It would have helped if he had removed his glares.
I think OLX should go through ads, to avoid such nonsense. After all, it will affect credibility.

The Beetle pictured in the ad was spotted in Goa earlier this year (not Pune as the ad would suggest)

An ad for a MORRIS minor with a strange description
http://palakkad.olx.in/moris-1952-10...-iid-502849392
if he meant 10 Hp engine then there was no 10hp engine in Morris minors in 1952

This would be an early model going by the bonnet vent and position of the bootlid badge.

Seems almost entirely intact on the outside. 'wonder if it has the rare, original dash intact.

Nice number too.

Price too seems ok compared to what is being quoted for lesser examples today! But for whatever price it is worth buying, considering that Heralds are now rare in Madras itself, I hope this finds a better home rather than ending up as a 'jaanavasam' (baraat) car there!

I would say price quoted is Not Absurd as one can see in majority of net ads

There is a 1990 Toyota Cressida XL station wagon for sale. Not a classic exactly, presume it can be classified as a modern classic. The car seems in good working condition. Can be a purposeful daily runner-

Yes, that was what I had said as well, in another way!

I wonder if any of our folks had enquired about this car incidentally? I know from personal experience that the Herald does have a sizeable fan following as of now!

The Humber was a more upmarket brand of the Rootes Group that also had the Sunbeam and Talbot car and the Commer truck marques under its umbrella.
The steering, gear lever and the horn button are also quite typical of the then Rootes Group designs.

The above featured Minx featured for comparison is very original and even sports its original leather upholstery!
