I love such cars. Well done, reliable to use and very practical. I wonder how many Fleetmaster convertibles exist in India. Perhaps 2 or three?
I myself have a Fleetmaster 2 door coupe, she travelled from Pune to Indore to Nashik (me) where she is being done.

When I got the car the mechanicals were missing. By chance a Fleetmaster got scrapped a few months ago in Chorbazar. I picked up all these and now the car is getting ready.

Cheers Harit

Should be very handsome.

A friend always tells me of his relative's immaculate 2 door Chevy of the same era at Khushroo baug which was vandalised and then scrapped out of frustration many years back.

WOW Thats a post war 1.5 Liter Jaguar Sedan almost identical to the one I have even down to the colour scheme on it.

Do post some close ups of the car with engine snaps and interiors. Also look in the boot lid for a hinged cover that houses the tools in purpose built, felt trimmed individual compartments, more like jewels stored in a jewel box !

Any idea history on this car and its owners would be much anticipated.

A very similar car, with a similar colour scheme was found in a property in Indore by a builder who had purchased the same. This car came to Mumbai, and I believe has been sold on. Likely to be the same car.

we will have to wait till RAC posts some detailed pics. i cannot go inside the private property (see the black car inside the parking lot). i don't have any details on the car.

I think RAC spotted me clicking pics - but sadly i am a stranger to him. Never met him in person. If he is reading this post - I loved the SWB Jeep.

Hi,

The 49 Jaguar is parked elsewhere, hopefully Sanjay can post some photos and even start a new thread on it.

The Lancia will be at the Tolly Car Show and i will post some more detailed shots. I would suggest you send an email to Sanjay for details & history of this car.

John
