Not sure where to put these or if they are good enough quality to post. From a shadi procession in the 1920s from the same old film as posted in the RR thread. Unfortunately spoilt by some off putting advertising watermark.

I'll try to dig up more info on the car formerly owned by Wali-ud Dowla in this thread. However to date the most solid information I've gathered is from DKG(thank you again). They are our relatives but I never tried to figure out the model or history of the cars from them. Unfortunately Wali-ud Dowla's daughter(the one I am closest to) has fallen ill recently, so my prayers are with her to recover. If so, the next time I sit with her, I'll see what she can tell me, or see if she can dig up some old records possibly. Don't get your hopes up, but I'll see what I can do.

Who knows.

It appears to be left hand drive, plus the wheels are strange. Doubt it could be based on a Herald, the dimensions just dont add up.

It could very well be a vintage toy car. Some were made to a size where even an adult could drive them. I saw a toy Lanchester with the Jamsahib. From the way the car is made it looks too homespun, quite possible a one off toy car? Perhaps Harit would know

During my trip to Germany, I sighted this car near Frankfurt in a relaxed, Sunday evening traffic. It moved away till I took its picture and so the rear part is seen. The car has a canvas hood and looks quite cute.
This is a thread pertaining to Unidentified vintage and classic cars in India, so rather than put up a new thread I thought of posting the car's picture here which was taken with an analog camera.
Which car could it be?
