This car was in discussion when we were talking about Horsch cars in India because of that distictive "H" on the radiator.

The Mahim car is an Austin. Recently done up, she's spotted regularly, running nippily in and around Dadar-Mahim.
She was a participant in the 2011 VCCCI rally.

The Hansa looks like its being done up at Swadi Automobiles. As the mechanic on the side looks from there. Any which way nice.

This car has a very long history, owned by the Powales who own a motor car workshop near Plaza cinema, the car was earlier maintained by Dilip Powale a national level waterpolo player who tragically passed away very early on. Now it is maintained by his brother. Incidentally these Powales are cousins of Mahesh Powale, who is an engine specialist in Shivaji Park.

The car was recently restored and put on the road after years of storage.

Are they the same folks who also had a 1940's Standard Sedan?

This is a Statesman WB made by GM Holden (Australia) in the early 80s, and not a Cadillac!! Nothing wrong with the front lights either!

This Hansa was owned for a long time in Delhi by a gentleman from Holland residing here. He had many other nice collectible cars in his collection, and would participate in The Statesman rally regularly. The current pics of the car in Bombay suggest recent restoration, but nowhere close to the car's original beauty, to my eyes. The over-black radiator grille (although it's not incorrect), with the contrived Hansa script is robbing it too, I feel.

By the way, check out some of these links to posts on this car and note the timelines, amongst other things:
