This very poor 56 is up for grabs in Pune at a ridiculous price.

Karl, forget the car but try and convince the owner to "get rid" of those original tail-lamps and rims, it'll be to our advantage!

And after you two have left anything for scavenging, may I have the rest of the car please??

Seriously, these cars are now getting rarer and rarer to find and the day is not far when these precious beauties will be highly priced.But to pay a king's ransom for it today is out of the question.

I see this as a very poorly put together car with bits from here and there. Someone ought to tell the sellers not to look at the world through rose coloured glasses and as someone mentioned earlier, the prices of most cars have come steeply down, the ones that were also raised to heights they didnt deserve.

So wait on and im sure you will get a lot of cars on the market, mostly being sold by those who bought them for style quotient.

If its not too late to post this, a friend called me up this morning and told me about this '48 Dodge fluid drive for sale here.

Classic Cars available for purchase-img_0325.jpg

This car was originally black, and I'd taken more pics. of it then, including the interior (no engine bay pics. though) but unfortunately I seem to have lost them from my PC during formatting! So this is the only pic. of it I have after it was done up. It seemed to be all original barring 2 missing hubcaps on the left, which it has in this pic. (or maybe those were the right ones switched sides! 'didnt pay much attention to it in this rally.)
The same person also has a fully restored '64-65 beetle in black also for sale. He's expecting a total of 8 lacs (both cars combined)
If anyone's keen I'll try and get more details, even pics. through my friend.

Yes I did read that its going to happen soon (someone mentioned an 'economic doom', however that takes place!) but didnt know its happened already!

Still, have they really come down that drastically, even in case of cars like these??
If so then I see quite a few openings for myself to own one of those good ol' yank tanks!

Gogi Sir and Karl Master, what should be a fair price for this '48 fluid drive?
Seems like I'd like to own one, since we had one in the family from '52 to '57 when we sold it and upgraded to a '56 Kingsway. My Grandfather did 2 all India road trips in the Fluid drive in that period!! Why we sold her off, well my Grandfather never used a car for more than 5 years! so we did not retain any old car.

Well the car still looks a little shabby, and I dont approve of the paint scheme at all, so I would say the car still has expense in it, mechanicals nonwithstanding. At the same time, the way prices are shooting its difficult to turn down this car if you are looking for one. I'd think 5 odd lakhs? Purely my guess, assuming it is mechanically fit.

There was a fairly nice maroon 1947/8 car in Dadar, BMX number, though I dont recall if it was fluid drive. It was for sale for a while, and Im told finally did get sold.

You must be having old photos of the family cars? Do share them with us.

5lakhs is a wee bit too much .3-4 lakhs is a good price in the current economic situation. recently a 1950 studebaker champion in good running condition got sold for Rs.310000/-
Prices of commodities,company shares and currency is plummeting,classics are to follow!!!

4 lacs is what the owner is said to have expected (which means he expects 4 lacs for the beetle he also has for sale!!)

Although I'm not qualified enough with pre 50s yank tanks, IMHO to be fair it should come to a lac or 2 less than this, although its upto scooby to decide what he feels is right to pay for it.
