Very likely the same Cadillac.

Looks like "JAIPUR-8" was a low bonnet Jeep. And also a Hillman 16 hiding in the shadows ?

The family had a lot of jeeps and one of them which was used by Rajmata Gayatri devi and now owned by her grandson Devraj singh has just been restored by Rajputana jeeps.

Here is another picture thanks to Getty images,
Maharani Gayatri Devi with Maharani Cooch Behar ( who was her sister in law)
