Presumably you were playing this for the laughs, because the picture on display in Carwale does seem to be a convertible.

What a pity about the slaughtered engine.

Default High price

Karl,
the desoto is in good shape. and seems fully original.
But requires cosmetic restoration.
I think 3-3.5 lakhs would be the maximum one can pay for it.
By the way ananth, what is your friend's budget ?
Hope he doesnt expect to get these big American classics for a song!~~~

This Austin was for sale in Hyderabad 2 years ago, when I took the picture.Probably it is still available.
Parked next to the car is my immaculate, RE 700 Constellation, which was eventually sold to Bangalore.

Speaking of plymouths, I'd posted about this '55 plymouth earlier in rust in pieces thread.
Now 'been thinking of asking a little advice here. This car's been junking away in the same garage where I'm getting my pennant & herald done up, and is currently on sale as they are finding it difficult with it taking up so much space.
It had an accident with a little right frontal damage and had thus originally come here to get that fixed ('cant take any pics. from the front for now.)
They'd done the tinkering and also some patchwork on the doors (as can be seen) but the owners had some family dispute so lost interest in the car and left it lying there since year 2000!
He says its got the RC (showed me a xerox of it) but its obviously not clear/needs renewal.
Most unfortunate thing is its been dieselised with a Perkins P4 engine! which is however not present in the car right now, I'm told the owners had it taken out before sending the car here.
The owners dont really care about quoting any price on the car but the mechanic incharge there is quoting 1.5 lacs for it! , claiming that he'd declined an offer for 50k from someone else.

He says he's got all the parts missing from it (barring the headlamp rings) lying with him. But obviously needs a thorouggh restoration!

How much do you feel I should offer if its worth taking at all? And how good a chance of finding an original plymouth engine for this car (which is only then I'd take the car!)

Chettan! Are u planning to get the car for yourself?? I must say, the car needs a loot of work, and many parts are missing, The interior looks like a bomb went off in it!!! Does he have the meters dash etc with him?? If not, u'll have a hard time doing it up, Also the engine in not going to be easy to find. All said and done, 1.5 is waaaay too much for the car, id say something around 50-75 k. Even 75 i feel is too much considering the scale of work that has to be done!

Yuor right chettA! Maybe I'll just 'up' that other guy's 50k offer a litttLe bit by say 55, then max. 60...?

Let's see. I didnt make any offer to him so far, 'dont want him to think I'm too interested in the car! 'just told him I'll find out about an original engine first, then consider the car.

Stanher the car is not worth 1.5 lacs for sure. i would say with the amount of work required and the dieselised engine the car would be in the 50 to 60 k range. i have a feeling half the money would be pocketed by the garage person itself. getting the original engine would be pain to source. first find the engine and then make him an offer.
