Default Classics in Panchgani.

A friend of mine just came back from Panchgani, Mount View Hotel to be precise and there is a treasure trove of cars lying there!! Here are a few pictures. I love the Mercedes. Gogi, very restorable isnt it?

Its a W110, maybe a 190D. Very restorable if the owner wants to restore it. Otherwise, junk

That was posted by mistake. It may not be a classic, but it sure is a LEGEND.


Mods Please move this thread into the classics section. I put it here by mistake!!

Nice finds cyrus, but most of these would be eligible for the Rust in pieces section. The fiat looks too buggered up, while the fintail looks restorable. Can someone tell me what is the Red tourer??

Lots of fresh air for the rats that apparently ravaged the upholstery??

I doubt shutting the doors would make a difference!

The merc is a 1964... 190D. The indicator lights are the same as on the old TATA trucks. The 200D had the indicator lights under the headlights.

I would love to restore this car. Is it up for grabs ?

I really doubt it is a Citroen. It has the characteristic side coachlines of a 1927 Chevy.

A Hillman used to lie abandoned at Panchgani. Wonder what happened to it?

Default Chevrolet

This car was earlier in Pachmarhi and shared a garage with a Buick tourer now in a collection in Delhi.
