While the colour doesn't suit me, the car looks great! Kudos to your friend. I'm in the throws of picking colours myself and it is a painful process.

Foby,

Nice pics of a restoration done well. Put up a few pics of the interiors as well if you can. As Amit said colours are very periodic and nice

Only suggestion - please tell your friend to get 'white walled tyers' - it would enhance looks of the car beyond mesures.

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Foby,

Is this one from Guruvayur - or is this some other bike ?

Also on the Changanaserry Plymouth tell your friend that White Wall inserts may be avaialable for the tyres in India itself. - Pavan Kadam from Bangalore may be able to help him in that regard

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe
