Spotted this Dodge Kingsway in Dombivali's Kandalpada area outside Tata Motors workshop in a very sorry State. Can't ask anyone about the car as it was Monday & workshop was closed.
On its rear seats, there are many Padmini spares including carburetors, side pattis, plastic wheel caps etc.
Here are the pics:

Saw this mid-1950s Plymouth (Savoy?) lying outside a breaker's shop in Bombay's chor bazaar last week. A pity, since the car looks to be in decent shape. Or (hopefully) it was being readied for a buyer. As it's right-hand drive, I expect this is one of the CKD models assembled by Premier Automobiles in India. Sorry about the low image quality -- as it was dark, I couldn't click any pics of the inside either. By the way, GTQ is from what state? Goa or Gujarat?

This car has been lying there for a couple of months at least - it is for sale, not scrap. It has been dieselised though.

GTQ I would think would be Gujarat.

That is a 1960,.. Bel Air most likely, with the chrome trim around the rear body panel.
Engines
283 2v 170 hp
283 4v 230 hp
348 4v only 250 hp
Although higher performance engines were available, these were the most common in four door sedans
