Yes, you are correct - it is an amphibious vehicle. Believe it is a DUKW (called "duck"). Widely used by the Allies in WWII, but needs more research. Still used in the U.S. for river tours.

I have posted pictures of this car earlier. It is a Wanderer on display at the Netaji Bhawan, a museum, the home of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose in Kolkata. The picture postcard title says that this "car was used by Netaji to escape from Calcutta to Gomoh" in January 1941 (during night hours). The car is kept in a glass enclosure and photography is allowed here, as it is housed in the compound of the museum. Within the building photography is not allowed.

Here is a Ford Fairlane with some interesting history. Appears to be in the Indian Airforce Museum, Delhi.

If I have to talk about odds, I was not suppose to be in Ernakulam yday.
Then I was not suppose to take that specific taxi to airport but hopped into it.
Then that taxi was not suppose to break-down on the road but it does - and it does next to this Hyundai 2nd hand car dealer.

Observation on the Austin 12 - A very well maintained car and well displayed. However, a serious shortfall - the headlight lenses are both misaligned taking away the impact of the otherwise great condition.

This nice little (supposedly running) AUSTIN was caught by a friend at Haveli-Murthal (Chandigarh-Delhi highway) on 27th Apr.

The wiper looks ODD.

Thanks Night_Fury.

Appreciate that though you are not in the vintage scene, you have posted these cars on display with the correct description. This increases the readability of the posts significantly.

One of the owner's is currently visiting Bangalore and over dinner he was mentioning about this display. So it is great to see these pictures. Something to chat about this morning with him!

Thanks
