Our family had a two door one. Brilliant car.
I'm trying to hunt for our old car pics and if i find them, i'll attach them
In the meanwhile, i'm attaching one from the net.
Price of the car would depend on its condition.
I'll talk to my dad (who's driven the car for 15years) for a detailed report and post it later.

APX 3702 was bought from Dominator by my cousin. I drove it to Mysore from where he drove it to Ooty. The car was very original, but the engine was a little tired. The car is now in Kochi. Regrettably, my cousing replaced the engine with a Herald unit. I have a two door low light car, 1950 model; I'll post the photos. Incidentally, about 3000 cars were imported in CKD condition and assembled in Madras by Addisons and Co, in the hope that they would get a licence for manufacture. However, the licence was granted to Hindustan motors, who manufactured the high-light 4 door later version, (the Morris 1000 in the UK), as the Baby Hindustan in India.

a minor correction, all baby hindustans didnt come with 948 cc engines.
the first few years it came with OHV-803 cc A-series engines.
