A very well maintained vintage Jaguar, don't know exactly which model it is, I guess is Daimler version. It's being parked at Hotel Imprerial at Delhi.

That's a 48-50 Mark V. Headlights are possibly not stock.

Citroƫn Traction Avant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

RHD model, therefore probably made in Slough, England, for British fans (there's whole web-sites and an active market in buying and selling these gorgeous gals.

Kerala license (I think; KRL is Kerala, innit?), otherwise I'd have pointed you towards a Team-BHP member who is the only person I know who owns one.

Heart-achingly beautiful. Ahead of its time, like so many Citroen vehicles. Read all about it on the URL given. There used to be a number of them in Calcutta 35 years ago, in cracking good condition. Naturally, none left now - tempus fugit, and all that.

Guys, this car was spotted by my friend here in Thane.It was getting hooked to a tow truck when my friend passed by the car. I have never seen this car in our city so have no idea who it belongs to, but i got a feeling that this car was there at this years Haig rally. Gogi, Karl, Amol. guys any idea who it belongs to and which model is this exactly. Is it a Chevy Woody ?

This contraption is a Woody made by International Harvester (subject to correction). A very unique car in India, possibly the only one, I was surprised to see SAAB wheel caps on the car at the Haig rally. It belongs to none other than our very own Harit, I shall wait for him to tell us more about it.

Thanks for the details Karl, no doubt Harit will be able to tell us more about it.

This appears to be a 1941 KB-1 International "woody" station wagon. Very, very rare and worth at least $US 15000 as is. Good find.
