Default Hanomags in India

First ,it is located not in the southern tip of India ,which is Pygmalion Point !!.
here is the above car advertised for sale

http://thiruvananthapuram.olx.in/vin...-iid-594110325

This car belonged to CARE a charitable organisation and was later owned by a person near Secretariat and was in long term ownership of a garage owner in Panavila junction.About a decade ago the present owner bought this car and has been advertised for sale previously.Most vintage car enthusiasts here know about this car .

Default Hanomag Pics - from 23 years ago

With the hope that these pictures will be an impetus for some one to rescue her from her current state, I am reposting them here (Originally I had posted them in the Trivandrum Vintage Car Rally thread).

But I feel the expectation seem to be too unrealistic for any serious collector to be interested - but then again I am not an expert to even make this observation

Best Regards & Drive Safe

Default Re: Hanomags in India

The back definitely resembles an early bug , Somehow was this design related VW Beetle’s design made for Hitler ?
