An early (1961-62) Standard Herald mk1 with more or less everything intact, and very clean body too! A shame that such a car was left out on the roadside to rot! That too even in this day and age!
Already a few parts have been nicked off of it too!

Standards at the Delhi Durbar
Your link doesn't work anymore, here is the link from the standard register

http://www.standardregister.co.uk/id13.html

here is a picture of HM King George V in conversation with his Chauffeur William Charles Vincent.

Quote:
Mr Vincent was employed by the Standard Motor Company so it would appear that as well as supplying all the cars for the Delhi Durbar, the Standard Motor Company also supplied the drivers. Following the visit, HM The King, presented Mr Vincent with a number of gifts including a ceremonial Kukri set carved to depict the King on the tiger shoot and a set of gold cufflinks from Garrards.
All the standard cars supplied for the Delhi Durbar had this special Bonnet mascot fitted to all cars.

What nostalgic pics!
ORWO Films was a big deal when we were growing up in the 1970's. Always Black and White and mostly 35mm reels.

Those Standard vans which are depicted in these pics were a common sight in Madras and Coimbatore as also Anamallais and Munnar when we were small - they used to be used mostly as commercial vehicles, somewhat in the manner that the Tata Magic and Mahindra covered mini vans are these days. After that Standard Van, in my memory there were only those huge old Matador vans for many years, until the Maruti 800 Van came along...

Looks like some place up north, going by the Hindi signs and attire of the men. The herald's a Standard Herald mk2.
