Definitely not a Ford Prefect. It seems to date from an earlier era- the 20s, the side fenders with the slot for the stepney tyre suggests its an American iron but open to correction.

I would suggest a mid thirties Vauxhall looking at the grill and tyre. If not Vauxhall, still a British car.
Definitely not a Prefect. Not an Oldsmobile.

. Fisher body.
Vauxhalls had flutes in the grill shell and that one laying in the car hasn't got them.
1934 Chev

I had another look at the grill and I'd definitley mid 1930's GM and most possibly OldsMobile.
This a 1934 Buick.

And Ta da !! 1934 Oldsmobile!.[:-)]

What a lovely shot.

The radiator grille appears to be lying inside the car, and things do add up to make it a GM car. Were sidemounts offered in the Olds?

These are very old pics, dating back to 2002. Yet they keep coming up for discussion on every automotive forum sometime or the other.

Here's a discussion on those pics, posted in 2007. You'll find all your answers here:

what are those mag rims doing there.None of the bikes offered by this company ever had those kind of wheels.Look very much like the silver Plus / Explorer wheels from enfield. i used to have a kawasaki RTZ on which I had swapped the wheels with those from a Fury with the disc brakes. Was able to go much faster than others and the heavier fury front end also improoved the ride comfort.

Wasif: I am not sure if they did release any of the bikes with those mags but they were surely going to offer the bikes with them. I have seen them on RKs and they do look lovely, and yes they are for the Yezdis.

True, the Yezdi factory went into liquidation all of a sudden, due to a death in the family. they may have been planning to introduce alloys then. Remember the Yezdi ads including a 175cc (was it?) in Indian Auto magazine back cover during the late 1980's? They were caught in a crossfire with the Japanese 100cc invasion in the mid 1980's.They lost their bearing. Much like Premier Automobiles with Maruti's entry. Whereas, the Bullet and the Ambassador have retained their individuality and have survived!

A shot in the dark, could this be a cadillac? my guess is based purely on the bonnet vents. Compare with the Pictures below (borrowed from the net & modified).

EDIT: Just saw post no.2134, apparently these type of vents were quite common

Those kind of vents also featured on the early 30's Auburn too. Cadillac repeated the vent pattern on the trailing edges of the front mudguards so i would say this is not one of their cars.

Maybe Harit has the answer.

I had a closer look at the 1934 Oldsmobile in post no.2134 & it is remarkably similar to the car in question.
The opening quarter glass, the raked radiator grill, the wheels... I think it is a match.
