Must be a very big car considering a scooter easily fits the engine bay, could be a 8 cylinder.

Must have been a majestic car in its prime.

It looks like an pre 35 Chevrolet . Could just be a Buick also. I cannot pin point the inside garnish moulding on the front door. Which fits over the side inner panel

I wonder where the engine of this car is?

Maybe the blacked out no. on the scooter lying in the engine bay will give an answer to the second question about the whereabouts of this car.

Kasli, well done, really. Been wondering how you spot the most obscure, tiniest details and figure out the larger picture. I suppose this can come when one has deep knowledge on a wide variety of marques of the classic gen. Thanks for figuring out, I was really keen to know what car it was myself.

On another note, hypothetically speaking, since the engine is there and it's a great looking model, can this particular car qualify for a restoration?

This car with a group of people would have been in India. What car could this have been? A clue maybe found on the hubcaps, I compared with Buick and would like to hear opinions.

Cheers harit
