dear renjit,
Sorry to say that you have been misinformed regarding the cars.He has neither a FORD T model nor a Rolls (leave alone 30's model).What he has is a BEAUFORD(1978 model RR Kit car) and a FORD A model which originally belonged to a doctor in ALWAYE.
He has got a Baroda registered austin7 also.Most of his cars are having diesel engines(especially the american cars like chevrolet,DODGE etc)
If my info is correct there is only one FORD T in Kerala and that is in Trivandrum

Yep, i second what ajay says here, the claimed Rolls is a Beauford Kit car which i believe has an isuzu 1800 engine or something. The Ford is a model A, and he does not have any Muscle cars. He has a dodge kingsway and a plymouth Savoy IIRC. Both are diesels.

You cannot get a Kit car in INDIA as far as I know.These were available in UK,USA etc. This particular beauford belonged to a European based in Coonoor and the present owner bought it for a ridiculous price of Rs.8lakhs in 2001 .Beaufords dont have much value as per my info.

Foby,
This is not the only Landmaster Woody Traveller in Trivandrum,leave alone Kerala.
and aniruddh, this just has the body everything else is changed(engine,steering,dash).
There is a fully original,genuine Landmaster woody in Kerala, but whether the owner will sell it,one has to enquire.

The car mentioned here is a CHEVROLET HEARSEWAGON which was originally from Trichur ,now owned by a KSRTC driver and is located in the suburbs of Trivandrum.All the stuff he has claimed about in TV is a pack of "'white lies''(sportswagon, California rally winner", only one in INDIA,etc).He bought this car for Rs.70000/- from a Timber dealer in 2008 .

if you mean,the engine, I am not sure,but in all probabilty it could have been dieselised,because the owner has no love lost for originality

I agree with you, the owner has no love for originality.
Does he also have an Morris and a Austin ?

The interior are so much intact including handles and door stopper etc. The rear seats can be folded inside a compartment so entire rear portion can be used for recreation purpose......good designed car though. Sorry no pictures taken at that time.

he has an AUSTIN A40,no Morris.
You are partially correct regarding the foldable seats but the purpose is not at all ''RECREATION'' ....
i repeat,it is a ""HEARSEWAGON"" and the tail gate is not opening type and the rear glass can be winded fully down.
