Shyam am seeing 1983 Lamby's being quoted for some Rs 25K.That they say is reasonable. One friend was moving in a UP registered Lamby (URA ---) in Maharashtra. He never paid the OTT here for years. And he would joke that if he's caught he would tell the police to keep the scooter as it would resell for Rs 1 K then in the 1990's but OTT would cost something like Rs 2 K plus.

Add to that the growing demand for these scooters in the UK market, lots of them were exported some years ago, not sure if the trend is still continuing.

Anjan, there is something wrong here. If your friend has the docs of URA and their taxes are upto date, then there is nothing to worry about. All he has to do is to show the cops that taxes are paid in UP, and with a cup of tea promise to send it back.

BTW, these scooters including Vijai's have gone out of India in container loads, so there is bound to be a shortage as demand picks up. Increase in demand means incr..................

A real steal. I do not know what has made Indrojit decide the price. I would suggest him to sell it to only true blue Yezdi enthusiasts- he knows many and not to speculators. Would have loved to own the bike but me too facing parking problems with so many of them with me now.

The bike belongs to a friend who has given it to me. I have no interest in bikes or scooters other wise would have kept it.

please see this ad for ponton mercedes

VINTAGE MERCEDES 1959 190D SUPERB RUNNING CONDITION - Mumbai: Cars in Mumbai at Quikr Mumbai

it looks like the prices of pontons are coming down slowly but surely.
at present I have seen at least 4 different pontons for sale in INDIA all below 6lakhs
I am sure likewise the prices of other mass produced collectible cars will also come to reasonable levels but buyers will have to be patient and play the waiting game

just heard that a VW microbus got sold last week in chennai for Rs.82000 !!!

And no wonder about its quoted price.

When Beetles are quoted at an Astronomical price of 15 lacs, why not a vaxhaul

AFAIK vauxhall never made roadster sports cars(correct me if my info is wrong) in the 50's .this looks like a hot rod
also where are beetles quoted at 15lakhs.recently a restored beetle in kerala was sold for rs.2.85lakhs

I understand that this car was originally in Kerala then went to Chennai and from there came to Bangalore. At this price the seller should have documentation to prove that this is not a rodded car. Vaxhauls made 12/4 and 18/6 engines in the 1950's. The car is supposed to sport a 1500 CC engine. It will be interesting to get more information on this car. If it is original, then a very rare car but price is still a question mark!

Cheers

Yes, i searched all around for such a Vauxhall, never found one like this, so in all probability its a Hot rod(Mix and match)

Though it looks good, but the price has a Missing " . " inbetween 2 numbers

And about that 15 lacs Beetle, A restorer and tuner at Bangalore (Kalasipalya - Market Road) by name Vinay A. He has this Orange Super Beetle, which was originally Red and in great condition from Chennai. Came to Bangalore at a price of 4.35 lacs, One simple paint job and few fittings has catapulted the price 4 folds

At such cases the valuation of a classic / vintage goes for a BIG TOSS

As an Indian rod, not bad. I like the way they have incorporated the "flutes" on the bonnet. And that too in chrome. This was a trademark of all Vauxhalls, from the earliest to the last in India, the Contessa. Good job, but highly misrepresented. And valuation, oh boy, ambitious.
