A very good looking car (I can't think of another in this bodystyle). I think the car is ex-Rampur.

This beautiful 1966 Buick Wildcat (7L engine) is ready to pounce in Bangalore. The engine sounds wonderful.

The beauty of Papu Ramaswamy's restorations is that it is never over the top and the cars run very well.

Let me tell you that if the car was for sale, it will never be openly announced. As you participate more in the V & C section, you will notice that unless specifically mentioned, the car is never for sale.

More information on Classics available for sale can be found here

Likely to be the same, since the Bombay car is also ex Rampur. Nice catch!
