May not be a Rootes Group design. Possibly a mid to late 40s Armstrong Siddeley

Thanks bulletboy- it is indeed the Armstrong Siddeley Whitley that had a 2309 cc, six-cylinder saloon.The car was made between 1949-1954.

There was a wonderful example with the Maharajah of Jodhpur and was being restored at Jaipur . It's current whereabouts are not known to me but remember catching a glimpse of it somewhere in a boutique hotel in Jodhpur in 2010

I found this vintage beauty on the way I walk to work [Here in the Netherlands].
I do not have any further details of this particular car.
However I have to admit that there are lot more vintage cars and bikes which are in running condition here in Netherlands than what I could see in India. I recently visited a garage for some minor repairs for my car, while talking to the mechanic I came to know that many of the vintage cars run healthy even after 7-8 L or sometimes even at 10 L KMs. The key reason I could make out is that these cars are well maintained and they never had to face rough roads as we would face in India or in most developing nations. These cars have low routine depreciation because they run on smooth environment. So most of the parts remain healthy and do not break. I could realize the same sense of observation just by looking at second hand markets where most of the cars look next to brand new when odo shows more than 1-2 L KMs.

I found a very interesting article on RT today.

Quote:
'WWII traffic' drowned in Belgian moss for 70 year.

The haunted atmosphere of Chatillon Car Graveyard, one of the largest such cemeteries on the planet, serves as a powerful magnet for tourists and photographers.

Time has erased details of how exactly the graveyard appeared, but many believe it to be a legacy of World War II.

It is believed that the motors were left behind by US soldiers stationed in Belgium during the war.

When the war was over and the troops had to return home, they allegedly decided to hide their automobiles in the forest, as they could not afford to ship them all the way to the US.

The soldiers were hoping to come back collect their cars someday; they parked them nicely, hidden among the trees

Looks like an old Renault. The Netherlands has a very healthy and active classic car scene. Lots of clubs, lots of tours, several specialized magazines and lot of specialized workshops that can look after your treasure. But then again, many classic car owners do maintenance themselves.

Hope you are enjoying my home country!

Here's a fabulous collection of black and white pictures of U.S. Route 30 in 1948, taken by LIFE photographer Allan Grant.

Not a good sight. But definitely a good learning & reference resource for many restorations.
