I think these Dodges/Plymouths/DeSotos came only in LHD form even when sold new locally in India.

Only the 1954 Dodge/Plymouth/Desoto Convertibles were LHD as these were imported. The sedans were RHD as they were assembled/manufactured here

Correct, that is what I meant to say, forgot to specify cabrios.

Were RHDs sold in any other markets?

That is what it looks like. Though there is a cross bar with badge - Buick ? This was a picture taken "with pride" from an earlier posting.

The R-R looks like a Hooper PI ?

The picture appears to be touched up. The windscreens of both cars seem too highlighted, esp that of the one in the back. The bumper looks like a double blade? Popular with American cars? I don't think Bentleys would have that.

Here is an excerpt regarding a new photo exhibition at the Salarjung Museum. Has anyone seen this ?

"The collection will also include photographs of Salar Jung with his prized Bentley and other cars"

Excellent - can't say I can identify the car though. Possibly a Chrysler?

And I'm not sure if both the pictures are of the same car - the number plate above the taillight is missing in the second picture.

The one in the first picture looks like a 1933 Cadillac.

Thanks for these nostalgic pictures. The two cars below must be the same Cadillac.
