Oh man! Now that's a beautiful car. Is this the same one that was featured in bs motoring a while back? The stude coupes of this era were truly beautiful. Too bad they screwed up the saloon designs after 1957.

Man do I love Pune.
This is the city to live for all automaniacs.
Any info where we can see this beauty in flesh(or rather metal)?

I believe the owner stays somewhere on DP road as I had spotted this beauty once there & Karl too had confirmed this.

The car is in Mint condition

I can ask my contact in J -V motors where this car was present for 2 weeks for coloring job. It is way longgggg. I was stunned looking at this beauty and the way owner has maintained it.

Indeed. She's been in the family from new, and is the genuine item, a Golden hawk - supercharged no less! She is used once a week without fail, I regularly see her on the road, and what a sight she is!

The BSMotoring car I think was a Power Hawk, red colour with a CP regn.

I dont know the owner personally, so it wouldn't be right to divulge the location. Just stand on DP road on a Saturday morning till you see it.

i think the car your talking off Karl was the Flight Hawk belonging to Captain B. i have not seen the edition but red and CP registration number gets one car to mind.

Certainly the same car, my mistake if it is a Flight Hawk. Would you have any pics?
