A few months ago, I spotted this rotting classic outside the Merc service center in Parel. Can anyone figure out what this is?

That looks to be a 1954 Dodge / DeSoto / Plymouth convertible

are these somewhere in Kolkata.. If so, and if still they are there,will find time some day to go and see them in person..

Always loved the Ambassador and the Premier / Fiat 1100s

Hi retrogrease,

Was going through your post. Interestingly my car an Ambassador 1968 model, has the same colour shade. The pictures are in another thread, link below:

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/post-...allery-72.html (Landmaster And Ambassador Picture Gallery)

This colour shade "Aero Blue" was original from the HM factory.. and not aftermaket.. very few numbers were produced in this shade. Appears this was not a popular shade and perhaps was discontinued.

What is the current condition of the car. Has it been restored..?

Our dear Kartik was only 45 years old when he passed away this May'22.

He is still being missed and we think of him regularly.

There is a thread announcing his demise. Link (Kartikeya Lunia passes away | We knew him as BHPian KartikeyaL)

Thanks
