Came to that Vauxhall is close to my home.But my friend who took its pics said it is in sad state,fully covered with dust.Seems like owner after restoring had put it to rust again.

Yesterday i spotted an old car which was passing by in front of my house. It had red body and black fenders, slim tall grille, right hand drive, smaller than a morris minor. And i think it's even older than a morris. The wheels were pretty thin. The registration was MSY ****

Anyone seen this car? I couldn't see the make or the model name, and i'm not good enough to tell the vintages from their shape.

Those wheels & tyres look like they come off a Mahindra 540.

Which car is it?
I'm too bad at identifying the classics.

Hi
Am Xoticars from Chennai. Was curious about the Riley RM cars in Trivandrum. I have one myself, and it is being restored right now. Just had a coat of paint. No pics at the moment. These your cars? My email is xoticars@yahoo.com. I am in Trivandrum shortly infact. I am from Kannur originally.
