.i know dt has two haflingers,is the vv car ex golf links? there used to be one here with a tibetian fellow who has since moved out,he also had a vw variant fastback and a lovely mark I range rover still with its V8 engine.
awini when was the last you saw the fintail wagon would like to see it. where is this ndmc impound located will go there to take pictures.
Golf links used to have some beutiful vintage cars at one point, but most have dissapeared now. my aunts family also owned some but sold them at dirt prices. i wish i was older then i would have taken them.
DT cars are not with him they are with another person now and am trying to get one for scooby uncle. the guy does not seem to be in town thats wht i have been told each time i call his place. so i guess i would just drop in at his place without an appointment.

like i said... saw them upto the mid nineties, the auto union,haflinger and jeep were with a guy called inder dewan, who had a workshop next to swamy's under the def col flyover, he had a small indian too, either a cub or a pony, definately not a chief. he also had a la salle, which he sold to salloo chowdhry in calcutta(the ex mandi car he took for the great american race)

thank you awini, will go there and find out what happened to the cars and the indian. i want an indian cheif as i like the design but in this case if i can get my hands on a pony i dont mind . i had seen a cheif for sale in bombay and in pune for sale. the one in bombay had alot of parts that were not original and the guy was asking an ubsurd amount. the pune bike was dismantled and put in a carton on the loft. the old gentleman could not make up his mind price wise. so i left both the bikes.

Default Morris Minor 1000

I saw this car for sale with a car dealer today and he is expecting 3 lakhs for it. He claims that this is a 1952 model, Goa registered and has up to date docs. Let me know if any one is interested,

Car has new tyres, interiors and newly painted.

so many cars are from goa but when it comes to counting cars in Goa they are relatively few with so many of them leaving
ahh...anyway atleast its in good condition
if we look at no. of goan cars outside goa it will be greater than no. of cars in goa itself

BTW morri minor for that price doesnt sound right cause a VW beetle of 1960 costs around 2 lacs in more or less the same condition(if i am not wrongvw beetle was premium compared to morris but then again ,since the morris is 1952 i dont know how reasonable the deal is ?)

personally i feel 3 lacs is too much for it

U are right amato, that is waay too much for a morris.But the car looks to be in showroom condition and morris 1000 in this condition is quite rare. But one question guys, was the morris 1000 available in 1952? I thought it was launced mauc later. Coz all the '52 cars i've seen are the side valve ones with the vertical grille slats.

amatmo .

srisha i think three lacs for a morris minor is too high priced. you would find cars in better condition for cheaper prices.

Minor 1000 was launched in 1956.

Quote:
The car was again updated in 1956 when the engine was increased in capacity to 0.9 L (948 cc/57 in³). The two piece split windscreen was replaced with a curved one-piece one and the rear window enlarged. At the same time the semaphore-style trafficators were replaced by the more modern flashing direction indicators then becoming the norm for the UK market.
The Minor 1000 gained an even larger engine, 1.1 L (1098 cc/67 in³) in 1962. It could now reach 77 mph (124 km/h), yet consumption was down to 6.2 L/100 km (38 mpg). Other modifications included a new dashboard layout (a lidded glove box on the passenger side, an open cubby hole in front of the driver), a different heater, plus new, larger tail/flasher and front side/flasher lamps.
1956–1962 - 948 cc
1962–1971 - 1098 cc
