Wow Karlos,

She has come out really well. I love the color, understated yet elegant. What an awesome work done by Srivardhan & his team. Must say the attention to detail is mind blowing.

All the custom cast bits look like originals. But the manual really steal the show. What a car. +1 for restoring her to it's former glory.

Most welcome. The 'autojumble' season starts here in a few months so I will check back for anything you still need if I go to any!

Great progress. My '61 Austin Cambridge will go off to have some bodywork done soon and the fresh paint has inspired me!

I got a hold of this neat ad of a Phase 3 Vanguard from a Times of India Annual, interestingly a 1959 issue - I assumed earlier that 58 was the last year.

Look who it is

She looks amazing, particularly the interiors! I missed this year's vintage rally so had to satisfy myself with the thread.

I stay a few blocks away from the original owner and have seen the car from my younger days. She now looks stunning!
