Yup, that car too was from Nagpur, but it was a different vehicle.

Anjan, do share more pictures from this and other rallies.

That is most definately not a Standard from any angle!! It is an altered/modded Amby. See the grille line.

Not a Standard, and certainly not an Amby as well. Possibly something like an Opel. They were quite popular in Goa.

This original 1958 Standard Super 10 is being restored by fellow team BHPian collector. We are looking forward to more pictures and little history on the car.
