Any idea which car is this? Looked similar to a Vauxhall Velox from certain angles.

I saw this at a workshop in Kapashera (New Delhi).

Studebaker - around 1953. Could be 1956 but can't judge the wrap around glass.

Yes, its lines seem similar to the Raymond Loewy designed Champion, tho' the bottom of the grill, with its split intake, is missing.

This is an interesting story. This particular Buick Skylark is from the 1970s if I a not wrong. It was first spotted by Team BHPian Rosso Corsa around 8 years ago lying abandoned in an open ground area in South Mumbai along with a Toyota Crown and Mercedes. In around 2013, I recollect seeing the same car near my house at Dadar, Shivaji Park parked alongside the Volkswagen Transporter which is still there. Apparently the car then went to Pune somepoint in 2016 I am guessing. It is now in a pitiable state. Here are some recent pics of the car I found on a Facebook page.
Does anyone know what the story behind this car is?

These pics are from when the car was in South Mumbai. Pic Credits:- Team BHPian- Rosso Corsa. Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of the car when it was near my place.

These are the recent images of the car. The car is literally a mess now. Sad that no one saved it when they could.

This is a 1960 picture from photographer Runo Ravander, don't think this car survived :(

Interesting to see the Dodge and Chevrolet emblems, perhaps parts of 2 cars.
