Ram,
I think you have mistaken this Belair with the concourse Belair which is part of the 3 classics owned by the same family .Those cars are still in concourse condition.
This belair is the only classic car in that garage and is located near the Railway station

It was originally a Herald that came to Trivandrum in this modified version in the late 1970s. It used to belong to some one with some filmi and Quilon Cashew connection, if I am not mistaken.

Default MG from Quilon

The famous MG-A from the Malayalam movie "TRISHNA".
Originally from a royal stable in Karnataka, it landed in Quilon in the mid seventies, went out of the state sometime in the early nineties.
Anyone know the present whereabouts of this KLU-112??
