Wow really neat. Did this originally come with tank pads? Im not sure if any of the Enfield India ones came with it. When you in coimbatore try and get the original footrest rubbers. They are slightly smaller in diameter. Also the rear shox. Would be great if u get the ignition switch back on the toolbox and change the bendpipe. Here is my 1980 bullet with almost 99% stock parts from when it was bought. I added the battery box and changed the carb.

Wow! This is beautiful. I remember seeing an Ambassador in Bangalore, cannot recall but I think it had a two-port Villiers engine, probably the 147 cc. I have a friend here who ones one of these too.

@ Girish Hello Girish,
Sorry, I was not at station, when you contacted to meet at my garage ( work shop)
Maru told that, you bought a pair of Knee pads for GTS ( bit seasoned stuff !!!).
And now, why you people are bothering too much about Bobby TAIL lights...............hey its nothing but Rajdoot Ranger's Tail light
Just ask the two wheeler parts retailars, for Rajdoot Ranger tail light ( Do not say Bobby bike tail light !!!) at least they wud have the top Lens portion, the bottom can be fabricated.

Hi girish.

I was just looking through this thread and was taken with the cars in teh background of your Austin 10 pictures.

Where were these pictures taken and what cars were there. I can see a 40's Chrysler and some other interesting machines.

Please do tell.

Hi Wasif,

That photo was taken in 2003, in one of my friends friend Farm house in/near Nagpur, there were couple of Austin 7's, Austin 10, an singer (sold to Delhi), dodge, chysler, plymouth and lot more lying around in the farm.
But now as per my friend that guy sold all as a lot (did not mentioned to whom)

At that time, I was new (still new) to this FEVER, so did not bothered much to get more information. Now regretting.....

May be Anjan can help ?

regards

Hi Wasif,
All these cars were sold to Delhi a couple of years ago. Nothing left from that lot, only an austin 7. If you look carefully at Randeeps post, you will see some cars that came from there, including the Renault. Perhaps you can check with Delhiwallas.
A Rolls was later purchased, it just won the concourse prize in Nagpur, see the nagpur Rally thread.

harit as always you are right! I too was trying to get an Austin or two from this lot - a 1946 Austin 8 and a 1938 Austin 10 were on my radar. Suddenly, one fine day the whole lot was gone to the capital.Guess they bartered and got the 1936 Rolls Phantom II.But harit this Rolls' restoration job is not done to the finest details.

Actually I made a mistake. 3 to 4 cars, among them a MG saloon and a Humber went to Lucknow, an Austin and Morris to Goa and I took an Adler.

The RR PII was in Mumbai, being restored in Opera House. This was the first vintage car that I saw under restoration. A Sardar carpenter was working on her. Somewhere in between the project was abandoned, and then someone put all together. A few parts were missing. Finally she was painted black entered in a rally in Mumbai.
When sold on to Nagpur, they found that she was not working properly. One mechanic again opened up the engine, not much success. Then finally she was given to Shirish who sorted out all. I do not know how many know about Shirish, but he is a wizzard. Though sitting in Nagpur, he can do any Jag, even the temperamental V12. He is also an expert on off road vehicles.
