We had one of these when I was a small kid. Will scan and post a picture later. Pity, we could not hold on to it :-(

Default Anyone here seen a 1946 Austin 10 with BYF 5046 Plates?

I owned this car in the late seventies, and was curious if anyone here has seen it. It was sold to a family in Ahmedabad around 1981. At the time, the car was fully original and was painted Black.

If you know or have seen this car, please do let me know.

Thanks

BYF would be a Poona registration number series, from circa 1947ish to the first half of 1954.

Well, I dunno about BYF 5046 but I have BYF 5042 here, as a 1947 Mercury in Poona:

Yes, it was a Pune car! It belonged to the Wadia family in Koregaon Park. Love the Mercury! The two cars must have been registered on the same day. Mine was a 1946 Austin 10 saloon.
