This car is from Goa, and was in Bombay for restoration. Its a beautifully styled car, and I know of only more of this bodystyle in Delhi, to be restored. I have heard though that Sikkim still had a few rare later Mercedes till not too long back, we can always hope more will turn up.

Incidentally there is a gorgeous convertible version in Mumbai, and I think another convertible in Pune pending restoration.

Vijay Mallya has a convertible version. I did see a 250S saloon in Sikkim back in 1995

But is this car a coupe? Could just as well be a more common 108 saloon.

This 1960 Mercedes-Benz Ponton () has been advertized for sale in Calicut (aka Kozhikode!). This car has been put up for sale prior as well-IIRC.

the only Benz Ponton with Right hand drive running perfect on road under diesel in India
Unfortunately- BML 8988 is another Ponton- which incidentally looks quite similar.

'Neways, more can be followed here: http://olx.in/item/1960-mercedes-ben...e-IDLgWcw.html

Only bit- the price. Ouch!

from my point of view , one could buy a 1939, a 1964, a 1969, a 1975, a w126 & over half a dozen w123s from OLX right now , with some cash to spare, within the same princely budget !
