A fantastic thread with potential to turn into a great collection place for old material. Can we have people contributing old print ads (from magazines) as well here.

Cheers

Way cool indeed...but reserved these original AC'd tanks were only for the rich and famous back then..."An AC in the car? Bah. What next, a swimming pool?"

JayD, can we restrict ourselves to Indian car brochures only please? If we just get all the vintage and classic car manuals from around the world, this thread will get nothing but cluttered.

I made the following scans from a July 1923 issue of National geographic magazine. The binding made scanning a tad difficult, especially since the magazeine is now so brittle.

DKG and Ananth- I initially intended to scan only the Packard and Essex for you, but then figured I might as well do them all.

The way we are all so wonderfully collaborating to build these archives I have no doubt that TBHP is on its way to becoming a must visit site for any budding vintage automobile enthusiast. The rich spread of information and pictures on display here makes this such an educational experience.

India has seen a great deal in her years and our efforts to document what transpired on her shores in terms of her automotive history is truly a real treasure and by the day is growing in its value as a knowledge resource.

In time I can see such an archive becoming as relevant and historically valuable as the many automobiles that still grace India.

Great effort gentlemen. cheers: to all.

PS: I would like to also take this opportunity to request all who are contributing to give credit to the original authors whose lives I'm sure were spent on researching data on various marques. Let the source receive its due. None of us were around during the period we are covering and all our data is second hand. So its only appropriate that we give the original source the credit, be it a book or a relative or friend who shared info selflessly.

Does anyone have an old Matador brochure? I don't need to buy it, but I would love to see some pictures.

Autolit had these for sale a long time ago. Apparently dated to 1969. This is the earlier style of Matador and Viking, they later got rectangular headlights and a plastic grille lined up with them. The ambulance number plate reads BT 1968 which I assume is Bajaj Tempo 1968, which somewhat verifies the date.

Old Hindi movie buffs will remember the Ambulance famously featured in the Amitabh starrer "Trishul" where he roams around with the Ambulance anticipating the bad guys he would beat up!
