Default Mark I in Mumbai !

Spotted this mark one in a by-lane off Shivaji Park. Heartening to see a Herald in Mumbai, thought they'd all dried up ! Anyways, I don't think this car is of a very high.. er, standard. (Just couldn't resist this one !)
Look at what he has done to the rear window !! This one seems a daily runner, though.

Hey, interesting coincidence- I remember seeing pics. of this car before (although can't say if the same location or not) uploaded by another tbhpian (danlan I think)
Yeah, it sure is pretty sad man! Sure is one disfigured car!
Although, unless I look at those previous pics. I can't say if the rear side window was modded then itself. But truly worst of all is that bonnet!!
Infact, the original way it opens is all the more convenient, especially for mechanics! It's totally unnecessary to change it to this way!

Anyways, if cars like this end up in chor bazaar (I should shoot myself for saying this, I know!) I'd like to have all the side-pattis, door handles, boot hinges, roof badges and tail-lamp covers...:slurp:

OT: that choco-brown SS80 behind it reminds me of my own car (same colour!)

Thanks!
Not pulling the hills?
The first and second gears are so tall that the car would climb a tree.
Maybe the car lost compression or had slipping clutch then.

Uh, I take it that Thattukadai means food stalls (since thattu = plate in tamil)?? I have a very remote connection with Malyalam, through my mother-tongue tamil!

Stanher, always hungry for more Standards.
I saw few Standard 20 (Micro) used everyday near Coimbatore.
The rear is like a mini lorry and not like a van.
Will post photos soon.

Could not keep this with me:
A Standard 8 is up for sale at Madurai.
Let us see if it suits Mr Dabhar Behram's interest.
Hold on for a week.

I can't comment on Mr. Dhabar's interest but it certainly suits MY interest!

Any more details on the car?? Condition? Pics.??

Default An old warrior...

A Standard from Indiranagar, Blr...
Apologies for the sub-standard pics ;-)

I think the car was in running condition till less than a year? ago.

A couple of months and this car will be ready for the 'Rusting in peace' thread.
