PII Maharaja

Thanks-Henkl
I believe the first picture is of a Continental II and it is I think an ex Maharajah car, possibly Bikaner. This picture was taken at a Louis Vuitton show in New York if I recall what I had seen and read about this picture once on the net. This same show had featured a freaked out copper bodied RR buffed to a gloss. Totally wild looking

Welcome to TBHP Karim. We had the pleasure of seeing pictures and videos of your Ghost being truck recovered, the restoration, and later being driven on the road. Lovely car and great work done. Thanks for sharing pictures/videos of your car and your restoration efforts with all

Hi Karim, they are all screenshots taken from the 2 Youtube films I have given the links for underneath the images. There is a magnificent close up of the car driving past but its moving too fast to get a clear screenshot.

Very rare photos and thank you for sharing them with us, it is so rare to have a Rolls Royce owner/restorer actually participate in this thread. Do you have any details of the photographs?
The fourth one is a bit squashed, how about this?

As to which of the Bahawalpur cars they are, maybe PI 92YC or PI 45WR 2nd body?
Over to park Ward and Travencore

Henk, Re. 105MW & "Hathoura" I couldn't find him. However I've found Krishna Pratap Sahi, Ruler of Hathwa Raj (also spelt Hutwa) in the State of Bihar.
