Spot on, ID 290 is indeed the Edwards America. Shes quite stunning, isnt she? The last of the Delahayes and Talbot Lagos curiously sported very similar lines.

So which is the model year?

By Indian standards, if an Esteem was built in 2005 and sold from a showroom in 2007, it would show up on the RTO records as a 2007 model, right?

OT: When I was a primary schoolboy (ca. 1963), at Dadar TT circle was a three-gala toystore run by a Parsi gentleman. It was called "New Colony Stores" and they had aluminium die-cast 1/43 scale models of Toyopet Crown and Datsun Bluebird cars.


ID:286 is a 1958 Toyopet Crown RS-L

Ah right you are, -GS-!

ID:291 is a 1953 Holden 48-215.
Spare-parts shops started to call it the FX after the new model FG came out.

This was Australia's first car, made in Australia for Australia. The car was launched in 1948 and continued till 1955.

Originally intended to be a Chevrolet for the US market, it was found too small and underpowered to catch American fancy.
It was a stripper -- A car with no chrome, no heater, no passenger side sunvisor, no wind-up windows, no turn indicators and only a single tail light above the number plate.

Options available were a radio, rear venetian blind, passenger side sun-visor, locking petrol cap and a heavy duty oil bath aircleaner. It came in only four colors: Greenish Grey, Blue, Cream and Black.

It had a monocoque body branded as Aerobilt. The engine was a 2,161 cc straight six OHV mill with aluminium pistons. It put out 60 bhp and drove a 3-speed manual gearbox.

ID 292

NSU Prinz

design rights were taken to Russia and produced as the Zaphorozet..or something like that.

aircooled , rear engine, well made.

Company went under when they came out with the brilliant but flawed Ro80 and were taken over by audi and later dissolved

Correction - the Russians copied the car, never bought the rights to it
