Saw these on the Gondal highway in Gujarat. While the Ford is supposedly still "work in progress" and the owner wants it running, the others are kinda dead with the modifications to the body and missing papers etc. Sad!

The Hillman Minx Phase IV and the Morris 8 appear to have been four door versions, that have been now converted as two door ones with chopped hoods !

Yes Indeed. The roof/hood are kept aside, but they look too tough to be saved.

An early bay window van, and I would say the splitscreen was a panel van and had windows cut into it at some point in it's life

The same car now, lying at a garage- where it was brought for restoration- for the last couple of years, spotted by a friend who clicked these pics.

Once considered as a symbol of 'sarkari prestige', these are now sadly rusting away outside the government office.

Some pics of cars lying in such a condition, owing to a myriad of ridiculous reasons better not be spoken of!

I have similar Vauxhall - Velox six cylinder car purchased from Bombay in 1950 by my Dad. Still the car is in good condition after 68 years now. Kindly let me know the details of RIP Vauxhall is it still there in Bombay.

Spotted just yesterday- a very original mk2 amby, except ironically for the engine, which is a diesel as per a friend who informed me that this car had come to an auto electrician there and continues to remain with him! Not sure why.

The only clue is that it is a pre- 1970 model, as the Mark II logos are on the front fenders and not on the luggage boot.
