Came across this lovely picture obviously after a party fresh from their hunt. Though the snap is stamped & reads Africa Hunting but we all know " there are no Tigers in Africa "

What car is that ?

Cheers

Just some observations. The car is RHD, so it may have come from Australia. Model would suit.
But why did the Presidents fleet ever have a Ford? Nothing against the car, but normally one always saw upper end cars like Mercs, BMW's, Cadillacs etc. The car has a very ordinary design. But good spotting.

A Fiat 126, or Polski Fiat 126P. Once quite a lot were seen, now few are left, most have rotted away.

Presidential fleet has been well documented. There have been left over Rolls , Packards from the British period. then we have, on these very pages, seen the various Caddies, 50s Chryslers, followed by MBs, both 300, 600 and the stretch Pullman. then came the armored BMW and so on. There has never been a mention of a ' Ford Fairlane'. This car, though a stretch model, is a very ' Plaine Jane, no sign of armor or bullet proof glass. Eventhe interior appears to be of a very shoddy kind. I feel very doubtful it would have passed the selection for a ride fit for our chief executive. Incidentally , no Ford emblem or Fairlane clue to be seen. Harit has observed rightly that being RHD, it's origin could be Australia. But have you seen what magnificent stretch limos are in use in that country ?
