Packard for sure. The Grebel lamp mounted in the centre might shed a clue on whether this car has been photographed before.

As per wikipedia
Quote:
Mohanpur State was a small princely state belonging to the Mahi Kantha Agency of the Bombay Presidency , It was centered on Mohanpur town in present-day Sabarkantha district of Gujarat State, and included 52 villages.
In the picture below Thakore Saheb Shri Harnath Singhji can be seen with Auwa family( his wife was from Auwa) for Shikar at Mohanpur , the car seems to be a 1936 Buick.

It does look very similar to the Berar Packard. The centre Grebel seems to have gone on a diet.

Similar also the Bhogilal Packard, likely not the Datia car.

Pictures taken in Delhi 1912, at the back of the photo is mentioned " Gopalrao Nimbalkar" , he could be from the Phaltan State, or maybe he was the photographer.

The car is almost certainly a 1910 / 1911 Darracq. A similar one (1910) is shown above.

The Rajas of Phaltan did have the "Nimbalkar" surname.
