Any idea which car this is, and where is it now?

Cheers harit
I suppose it was 9LC, the Jodhpur, Bikaner and Idar (?) car. BYA would have been what is now Gujarat.

Here it is at Pebble Beach, entered by Michael Kadoorie.

There seems to be another copy on EBay.

Default Bollywood and Tampa Fl?

Does anyone know anyone going to Bollywood Awards in Tampa, FL, my home town?

I am toying with the idea of taking my car to it. But it would be expensive and I would want to be wanted before doing it.

It is one of the eight identical cars by 5 coachbuilers supplied for the Delhi Durbar in 1911. The key word is "identical" - so there is no way to say exactly which one!

"Durbar Cars" Landaulettes - Barker: 1664, 1667, 1669 (Bhopal), 1670; Hooper: 1672; Thrupp & Maberly: 1674; H.J.Mulliner: 1677; Arthur Mulliner: 1679

Presently the car has not been in running condition for couple of years, And i have been invited to get this Beauty running on the road.

Pavan Kadam, I didn't know you are into restorations. I have also been part of a couple of restorations of RRs, though mostly as a researcher. My friend used to do the actual restoration job. Presently, a 1927 20hp has been completed.

Now that we have a better image, any more chance of identifying this Sanghi car?

Classic Rolls Royces in India-rolls-h.jpg

We know for sure it is not

- the red and black Patiala / Modi Phantom II 74GY (USL 1638).
- the dark green and black Sanghi / Darbhanga Phantom I 43 EF (BRG 63 / MBI 112)
- the Grey and black Himmatlal/Nagpur Phantom II 98MY (MMD 2567)

In more recent pictures we see the car retains the same colour scheme.

Happy sluething.

PII Chassis 134GY is the consensus among experts. Originally Scottish Motor Show 1930, then Earl of Bradford, then Lord Brabourne and Patiala.

Car matches picture in the Derby Phantoms.
