Thats the Classic Malibu 1981 lying at Lingarajpuram, just off the railway track.

This car is a V8 with 4 speed Automatic Transmission and run only 16526 kms on odo. and to top it up its a single owner.

This particular piece is a police cab.

The rear door cannot be opened from inside. and is a LHD .

This car is up for grabs any one interested pls let me know.

Docs update but sad history behind it.

can the lock be changed?

police cab is something a collector can have, but if anybody wants to use it the police lock for the rear doors can be very inconvinient

why would anyone import such a car? does it have grills between the reear and the front seats too?

Some more of these classics.

This one is a 1969 Microbus, completely restored and just lying idle since 3 yrs.

Might get my hands on it sooner or later.

The other is a Oldsmobile, neat car but HUGE. resembles an elephant from all angles.

its a good one
guess the owner should do something about it or sell the car.

Seems to be a very early model, pre 62.

Thanks Karl for correcting me.

JayD that chrysler is not for sale. Belongs to a big time collector in Nandidurga Road.

There's one 1987 VW Golf RHD Diesel for Sale there, Neat car.

V-16 that VW is already half mine, So switch off from this

V-16 i've no idea why a Microbus is so damn difficult to get, when lots and lots of them are seen in old Kannada movies.
Wonder where they have gone?

cheers..

Thanks Stanher.

None in Gujri knows what a micro bus is.
they only say " ha saab woh gaadi, matador maafiq dikta suu"

Any ways this car is a dream. Found near lingarajapuram.

The owner seldom uses the car, but is a "PIECE"- the very original Traction Avant

Shyam,
Did you get a chance to find out if the owner is willing to sell the car?
