Greetings,

A pictorial book is being compiled on the vintage & classic automobiles of the Nizams and their Princes, due for release around Cartier event in Feb 2017, coninciding with the Golden Jubilee of the present Nizam Mukarram Jah's coronation in 1967.

May I request for kind support in the form of information, inputs, photos and records of all things Hyderabad (automobile related - like photos, invoices, period adverts etc). You can share via email or mobile.

Pls PM to assist.

Thanks

The "body" as preserved (on the left).
The "soul" has departed; and been reincarnated, as we have seen.

No, this is the Jaipur Phantom II - Chassis 89MW. A colour version below:

The car in the Bhogilal collection is the ex-Mandi State 20/25, Chassis GKT41.

There were 3 cars with a very similar design by Hooper - the Khairpur PII (Chassis 44MY) and the two cars mentioned above.

See the R-R thread for more on the Bhogilal car

Good coverage KartikeyaL.

An envelope mailed back en-route from Assam. "CENSORED" since WWII was still on.
