He's had it since the 60's. Its in a garage in Chamlija. Once when I met him I asked if I could see the car as I always had heard of it from dad and he very kindly offered to show me the car. So when I went over I was actually surprised when he came to the garages himself and showed me the car. I had my camera and his permission to photograph it but since it was just the two of us talking it felt rude to make him wait while I photographed the car, so we just kept talking about this car and his Landrovers and I missed a chance to take pictures !

Did Rashid Bhai finally gt the Healy done ?
I doubt it. I remember when I first saw it it was complete, nice red and was shocked to see it completely stripped years later. He seemed disappointed in the mechanic who stripped it with a promise to rebuild everything and I guess let him down. I hope nothing gets misplaced

Well, I do have just one picture of it, before the dust had been wiped off. But I wouldn't post it on a public forum. My apologies.

The one in Bangalore is not red. It's silver too. I'm sure there are a few more around, perhaps not in Bangalore.

There is already a lengthy discussion on Mercedes SLs in India, lets continue it there?

I believe the Kolkata car must be the one that originally belonged to Viraj Narain Bhup Bahadur, the last Maharaj of Cooch Behar. He was a good friend of my dad's. The car was then bought by Rishi Kumar who subsequently sold it off.

Any new pics of the car?

Regards
Prithvi

The correct name of the Maharaja (minus the salutation) would be Virajendra Narain Bhup Bahadur - just a small detail, no offence!

Well two cars have really caught my eye here.

Can it be possible to have some more information on the Lancia Flaminia Touring posted by wasif and the Lancia Flaminia Sports Zagato posted by Faster789.

Are they still in India and in what condition? The Zagato looks to be a brand new car in the picture posted, a genuine 210 Km/hr car. A real gem and rare even when new they command fantastic prices now.

And just for the record Prince Aly Khan, son of The Aga Khan III died in an accident in France while driving his new Lancia Flaminia Touring.
