On a lighter note, finding a Buick convertible outside this collection any where else in the country would be very rare.

Amazing condition and thanks manishk123 for sharing

Cheers

Check post #162, picture # 2. Its a side profile. Number not visible. A page down in the thread and Karl thinks it could be Mr. Vakils.

Guys,The Vakeel buicks are great, but why ignore Rasool in amchi navi mumbai?His buicks amongst other beauties are mind blowing, but being an extremely modest and low profile chap should not make enthuisasts forget him

Since this thread has been inactive in a while, thought I'd chip in. I traveled to New Delhi on the 1st. week of February this year to attend a friend's wedding and this Buick (don't know the the model but it said "8" on one side of the front grill so must be a straight eight and was a huge 4 door convertible from the mid-late 30's) was the car for the Baarat. It's owned by a friend of my friend's who got married. Sorry for the poor shot, too much dancing,revelry and a mobile camera
