It is one of the better cars from one of your favourite brand, I am surprised you didn't recognise it.

And where was it headed, did you follow it. If it is going to the scrapper its a shame as its such a nice car wits that sweet Twin Cam and styling by Boano

The first thought that came to my mind was 124 coupe or some Jap coupe, but not too sure. Gogi too said the same thing when we saw the pictures. Guess since it was stripped it didn't quite click.

Looking at the way it is being towed (front wheels secured), I doubt it is going to the scrappers. Maybe moving from one garage to another, who knows.

It is indeed a Fiat 124 coupe, most probably a 72-73 (MMB was a 1976-77 number if i remember right)

It is an early 50's Chevy, somewhere in Bombay I'm told.

This used to be a 46-48 Ford Super/Deluxe (?). Vintageman had posted pics earlier, when some portions of the sides and top were still in place. I think engine too.

Someone is looking for a dash, if anything can be salvaged (frame too).

The engine is still in place . Don"t think that we can salvage the dash.

Good basis for a rod, make your own body, drop in another engine, all the while waste your time doing nonsense..........
