White car is an Austin 10 and the bottom car is a Vauxhall, could be a 10 or 12 !

Are these cars still in Hyderabad ?

Yes, both are in Hyderabad now. The Austin owned by Sulaiman Ali Khan has just stepped on the road after restoration. But i guess its a 12x4 Tourer not a 10 Tourer, isn't it so? The other one is Vauxhall 12 owned by Shujath Ali Khan.

Just wondered if you know of any more Austin 12x4 Tourers in Hyderabad? In particular a cowled radiator Austin like this, its quite a rare one i feel.
And please do comment on its present look i.e., post restoration.

Information and comments on the Vauxhall 12 are most welcome. Cheers!

The Vauxhall, if I'm not mistaken, is a Nagpur (BYJ) regn. and has been a regular at the Deccan Heritage rallies here.

There were a few of these 10/4's in Hyderabad. One green/ black one comes to mind that an antique dealer called Asim owned on Road bo 6 Banjara hills, was not in the best condition though.

There used to be one with an architect called Adesh Chandra, it was their fathers car that htey started to restore but didn't complete.

A few more in Secunderabad and if I remember correct a few in various garages in Old City area. It was a very popular car in Hyderabad.

My own 1930 Austin Burnham 12/4 was originally a Hyderabad Car APX 2766. But it was brought to Chennai in the seventies or eighties

AND your series 1 Morris 8 is from AP too...maybe not Hyderabad.

Your 12/4 is a much earlier and more classy example though !

Stanher, did your Austin participate at the Chowmohalla event in 2009? or you no longer have the car with you?

The Austin 12x4 Tourer (pictured) in such immaculate would be worth how much?

The Morris 8 (pictured) was lying tucked away in an oil mill in Shah Ali Banda near Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad.

The Nagpur Vauxhall 12 i have learned was once owned by the secretary of the ex-President of India, Dr.Rajendra Prasad.

Cheers!
