And I also see in the comments that Kadam's Bus getting restored is for sale at 3 lakhs, with or without papers. What makes you want to sell it?
Never sold anything whatever i have or had or going to have in the near future, and will never do so.

But what atrocious price for a Baywindow is that guy quoting for, just maroed one comment for the sake of it

I understand that a bus is rare to find, but so were Beetles rare some point of time, but now you can find a Beetle for sale every week everywhere.

The VW bus is also available in India and is hid in so many remote parts of India, one fine day it'll come out sure, but not beyond a lac for a running Bus.

Agree with Pavan here. Thats an atrocious price, fancy paint scheme or not. I own a Bay window too, i got a running one for less then a lac.

PS: I dont know anymore for sale

Hi immyshaikh,
I think you should pick it up without delay.
Although in Delhi, a lot of 280 W126'S are around for sale, for lesser money, but they are below average in condition, some even qualify to be called shabby. A W126 in good fettle is an absolute dream boat and i think the premium paid for a good example would be worth every penny.
I had a nice example of a W126 500 SEL myself, which i sold to a gentleman in Hyderabad, a
decision I repent on in hindsight..
Cheers

i did buy it yesterday, but only to help this small time dealer who was in need of cash and the only asset he had was this car. (genuine guy, know him for sometime now)

First i thought i would use her for a while and then decide, however i'm more of a american mucle (looking for one) kind of person and decided to sell her

but i guess that wont stop me from enjoying the shere power and comfort of the inline 6 till she is around huh!!!

thanks for all your help, will post some pics as soon as i have her all shiny and clean

oh and my other car is a custom 1960 fiat 1500 OSCA (Spyder) - not for sale EVER!!!

This was offered to me a few years ago. Probably Mr. Harit would be able to throw more light on its present existence ?

This car was either in Coimbatore or somewhere in Kerala ? The pictures were sent at that time as it was for sale . Not sure about its present exsistence ?

How I wish it were offered to me instead!

Spitfires are quite rare here. I like the early models such as this one.

If wishes were horses, we could ride them ??

Stop dreaming and come to reality.

Some of us old timers, had the best of bikes and cars offered at prices which at the time sounded absurd or we never bought it for various reasons. It is an endless debate.
