Are you sure that car no 1 is a Caddy? I think that this was a product of a unique co-operation between GM and Chrysler, car a Caddy and tailights from a 1947 Dodge/DeSoto.
WBA is today white, lives in Delhi and a part of the Choudhurie collection. This was a restoration by Kanoria, and came to Mumbai for an IARC event which was held in the parking lot of the turf club. The car was restored in Calcutta, driven to Delhi for an event and then came to Mumbai. The gentleman driving was a relative of Mr. Kanoria. This was around 1983, and I distinctively remember considering this to be one of the best restoration jobs I had ever seen in India at that time.

This piece of junk has been made as presentable as possible, it was worse before.
Many parts are missing. Just wait till you hear the expected price.

The price I would pay here for even as a parts car would get me a show winning car in the US. No way ! and imports of the wanted parts with duty are far cheaper than the current going prices
