Recently came across this old photo.

Name:  Avon Old.jpg

The car is most probably a Standard Avon. Nothing more is known about this car. Can anyone make out the buildings in the background? Seem to be industrial.

There is a likelihood that it is the Pune car below, photo courtesy Karl.

However, the hinges of the door do not match.
In the old photo, the door is a suicide door. In the color photo the door is hinged at the pillar.
Checked all the other Standard Avon's in India, both versions are seen.
Unless there has been an alteration, this car may be an unknown one.

Have a looksy.

Cheers harit

Could be this car as the doors are suicide style

I don't know its previous history and condition . So Fenders could have been altered etc.

Cheers
