The best Austin 7 which i have ever seen, almost all the parts are in placing and they work.
This must be the 1933KLV Austin from Trivandrum,
Although I agree it is a very original example,I strongly doubt the claim of original paint. This has been advertised off and on for sale at ludicrous prices.

His other car is KLT, anyway we are both saying about the same car.
It is rumoured that he advertises not with the intention to sell, but to find out the biggest quote he gets

Thank you sir, for i read that there's a Vintage club in Cochin & so hopefully can expect more of similar events. I'm a bit sad that i did not know about a 'drive' event happening in the city (i'm in a small border Kl-Tn town for work), my father would've loved seeing them up close. Please post info on such events here if you could in advance, & yes more pics of the past event.

But can this be a classic case of, "Beauty is only skin deep"?

Need more details regards KLK/923. Particularly about what is UNDER the hood.

A creamy straight six, or a rattly in-line four.

I DO hope that it is the former.

Cheers!

Yes its is a straight six under the hood ... the restoration took almost two years and was done in the owner's house . Overall an excellent job
