Well, these are 5.60-13 AFA I can make out- it even says so on the rear tyre. But yes the rear right tyre if I remember right looks like it was painted rather than original.

The front one looks genuine though.

Besides, he himself admits it isn't much as far as originality is concerned.

He was more or less persuaded into buying it, and the previous owner too was desperate to dispose of it and so it was bought rather reasonable (by today's standards)- 35k.
He doesn't really want to make any big profit on selling it either. He'll be happy (and relieved) if it goes to someone more interested in it.
Incidentally, I happened to see the same car parked at a local mechanic/dealer's hardly a month ago. I did presume it was for sale then....but didn't bother to ask.

It is a hyd'bad regn. but was in Vijayawada for a while, where it was done up by the previous owner ('seemed to have done some political campaign work for 'Praja Rajyam' party while it was there!) and then driven back to hyd'bad to be sold.
Unfortunately he couldn't take the car out for now as his garage shutter had been hit by a water-tanker so it opens only half-way up. So these are the best pics. I could manage!
It's mechanically fit, and with papers, although he said the regn./fitness is to be renewed.
Anyone interested can pm me.

Incidentally, if anyone here does buy it, I'd like you to part with just those white-wall tyres- atleast the front ones!!
Is this the same car? Any idea if the roof is still available?

Nope sorry, this is not the same car! You can tell by the numbers itself!

This car incidentally, is owned by an Ashley Thomas in Cochin, pics. sent by a friend who was then in Bangalore.
I remember Karl telling me it's a '62 Herald although the bonnet vent design tells otherwise.

A fully done up herald would anyways cost around 1-2 lacs.

Saw one in a total scrap condition, heavily modded at 75k

If you go through Stanher's post it is mentioned that the current owner bought it for 35k and doesnt want to make money on the deal. So my guess would be around 35k.

R-109 1991 300SL-24 RHD. Was not in great nick and was begging for a lot of care and restoration. Now it can be safely said that the beauty is in very good condition. I dont know how people let these great marques get to this condition.

Sorry but this beauty technically neither "is" nor "was" (although certainly "would be" over a period of time!) a classic, gogi bhai!

Anyways, to those of you who were interested in the 2 Fiat 500C that are for sale here, I'm glad to let you know that today, my mech. was able to persuade the garage owner into permitting me to take pics. of the cars and post them online.
So, here they are, and I hope they help you better in making a decision:

this is the one without RC, looks suitable for a parts donor. He said the person from whom he'd bought it never submitted the RC to him after selling the car. So it remained that way:

Classic Cars available for purchase-img_2157.jpg

Classic Cars available for purchase-img_2158.jpg

Classic Cars available for purchase-img_2159.jpg

And this is the semi-restored car with the RC. Incidentally, it has quite a history, said to've originally been owned by the Nizam's sister, then passing on to a Police official, before this garage owner bought it. Perhaps DKG would know of this car then?
All the major missing parts/panels (barring I think the seats) are stored on a loft inside the garage, including the original rims with tyres.

The rebuilt engine of one of the cars.

As I've mentioned in my post, he is ready to give it away at the same price he bought it for.
If you're keen on going for this, I'll pm you the owner's contact no.
