Interesting picture! Where did you get it from? There seems to be a mismatch between the persons shown and the vehicle in the pic. The picture seems to be from the post 1969 era.

I just learnt that the Dodge van MYB 9544 & Mark I ambassador car MER 359 are still unsold and for e-auction on EPROC website by 14-11-2014 . Contact the office Sri BMD Kumar 09480684069 for all details and clarifications , and participate therein within last date and pay EMD etc as per their policy.

I am not sure how this van really looks. I have never seen her.

"item 71 or 73???(note the discrepancy) auction number BBMP/2014-15/AUCTION5-73, minimum Rs 90000 500 90000, starts 03/09/2014 16:30:00, ends 03/09/2014 16:35:00, extension 4 Minutes,

I've added a document file below the picture for fellow TBHP member's reference. because I hope a TBHPian restores the same !!

How rare are these and what are such vans worth ?

Bombay Municipality, picture ca. 1930. The truck looks older, with solid tyres.

Maybe the "BOM-36" registration is a clue ?

A Bombay WWI ambulance, circa 1915.

Looks like a Siddeley Deasy or Renault. Hyland was a significant player in the India auto scene.
