This is not an ambulance Imperial. This is a goods carrier. This is in very good condition i must say. I used to have one of these, which i sold and there is one more in Delhi. Ishaan had posted pictures of it too.

Hey ram! Not at all! There are quite a few Citroen cars in India, infact there is one Citroen DS right here in apna Hyderabad!

It'd also come for the 15th august rally last year (or rather 2007)

There are at least two vans in Bombay as well.

Is the van still in active service?

Hey she looks sooo cute. I've always been a HUGE fan of Citroens, I had made a cardboard model of this very vehicle when I was in school.
Any remote chance of her being for sale ??

No, it belongs to a Mr.Y.J.Rao, an avid classic car collector in Hyderabad. Karl had posted an online article about him as well.
I believe it was originally an embassy car in Madras. The rest of the antecedent is rather sketchy.

So can you tell us more about Rangwala's car? I suppose that would make it the 3rd DS in Hyderabad, assuming the other silver one is not Rangwala's.
