Spotted a Standard Companion at a garage in Mysore. The car is supposed to be a petrol and has been stowed for quite a while now as the "water body" is unavailable. Hope it doesn't end up in the 'Rust in peace' thread! :(

Looks like quite a clean car with most of the stuff intact!

Water pump readily available on Ebay UK, can be posted to India:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STANDARD-8...item3a9e367578

Only thing is, owner must be willing to pay for it all!

If otherwise, then twill indeed end up one fine day in the RIP thread as you mention!

Looks real good, wot?

From this link: http://humster3d.com/360-view/?id=83479

I'd posted an old pic of the Gazel here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...ml#post3674081 (Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars)

P.S : I really love the Gazel.


Thanks!

A mk1 Standard Herald for sale in Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu. Going by the way the rear seat's been propped up, it seems to have been in use as "baraat" car for hire! Needs a LOT of work atleast bodily as can be seen!
Hope the owner has retained the roof!

Happened to find these pics. of a Standard Gazel mk2 photo'd in Goa by an Andrew Bone, circa October 1994, which is relatively recent- wonder if it still exists!

This may have been posted before. Anyways, there are at least two objects to get Stanher excited.

Was the Super 8/10 van locally made ?

I doubt it; the construction looks too refined!

There was what was known as a "6 CWT" van:

Though not too commonly seen. But 'doubt any survive here today!

Where is this picture taken? I see it almost everyday but cannot recollect of any rust on the right side door. It is very well maintained.
