A half a million dollar engine???

Add 5% inflation to that, it is over 55 Million USD now!!!

Wikipedia says:
In 1915, Briscoe offered what he called "The First French Car at an American Price." Briscoe claimed that the auto had been designed by a French design studio. It featured a single headlamp in the front, faired into the radiator shell. The auto was priced at US$750.00 but this price did not include a top, windshield, or starter.

The GTS175 was more popularly known as the "Bobby" as it figured in that movie! I had recently seen one of these bikes still running in Chennai!

Here is an ad for the newly launched Premier President - however the illustration still shows some features from the preceding Delight model.

The first few Presidents sold were indeed rebadged Delights. Some one I knew got the first of "Presidents" sold in Trivandrum and remember this as I went around his older car a 71 delight and made comparison and told the owner about it. The speedo meter console was different was one thing I distinctly remember.

So PAL must have just used a old printing plate with not types for the new name.

expensive! can be bought much cheaper on ebay UK, but postage will kill you and you will end up paying a similar price. unless someone carries it in for you.

This Hindustan Trekker brochure probably dates to 1979.

Does anyone remember exactly when these were launched? Also interesting to read that options included 2 petrol engines - the conventional 1489 and also the more powerful 1760cc version.

Interesting that the oil burner has both lower H.P. and Torque, than the petrol engines, though at a lower RPM.

This Fiat ad was posted on Facebook, showing the new Delight models. I assume this dates to around 1965.

Hello Anjan,

Do you happen to have a owner's manual/brochure/Spec sheet of the LML Vespa XE from the 1980s?
