Any idea if its in original paint or been redone at some point.

Some interior pictures would be a treat !
Thanks wasif for liking the pictures. I am posting more here.The paint scheme may be original, but I am sure the car is repainted. But no chrome plating or other coating on non painted shiny surfaces have been done. Its all original there.

KPS, thanks for identifying the car. Unless I would have gone through picture examples on the net, it would have been tough for me to identify the exact model.

I request that such cars are photo documented for their originality to help future enthusiast to restore their cars and use such snaps and connections for all references . This should be done for all cars in such condition.

Cheers and thank you

If it was painted it must have been pretty long ago and a well executed job as it has aged so gracefully.

Any idea what is the mileage on the car and when it was last run ? Does the engine run.

Plymouth was one of the makes that shifted to hydraulic brakes much earlier than others and the hydraulic lines can be seen on this car.

There was a late twenties Plymouth Tourer in Hyderabad that also had hydraulic brakes but the engine was replaced with a Perkins Diesel and it killed the car...to heavy for the springs ! Wonder what happened to it

The ADV tyres shows Feb97 as date of manufacture, hence I would guess the car would be last used around that time considering the condition of the tyres

In fact Zapp was telling us that the 1928 Graham Paige was one of the first cars with the hydraulic brakes. These were external brakes (Clasp type). Plymouth's started production in 1928 hence we could guess that they had hydraulic brakes from the beginning. I need to check the brakes in the Model Q the first Plymouth which came in 1928

I do not think that any 4 cylinder from Hyderabad (6 cylinder from 1933) has ever been posted here

Yes Wasif, the car is done up very well and looks very original. Believe this one competed with the Ford Model A, its contemporary,in the market then. WGU should be a registration from somewhere outside Kolkata.I was told that the car is in running condition. During my next visit, I will try and get a feel of its mileage with more pictures of course.
The fact about Plymouth pioneering hydraulic brakes is news to me. The Austin 7 never had these even till the mid 1930's, I believe.

Unless it had a stroke of luck, it would have in all probability been eventually killed at Afzulgunj!
'wonder why they Perkins-ised a 20s Plymouth though, normally only the more common 50s ones were.

Even the A40 of the late 1940s continued with mechanical brakes, albeit only in the rear.

This piece appeared in the Mumbai Samachar. It loosely translates to talking about a Fiat on display at an art and design exhibition at Bandra Kurla Complex, supposedly covered in gold leaf. If somebody can put up a better translation it would be appreciated.

Some cars and bikes were on display on Sunday 29 January 2012 at 'Mechathlon 2012' - we can see BHPian Girish's lovely Flying Standard cabrio and Austin tourer.

I assume this was in Mangalore?

In what is probably a first for India, Royal Enfield plans to set up a corporate museum in Chennai. A great move, perfectly suited to the brand.

This belonged to the owners father. He had two of these and they were used to transport cakes, hotdogs etc from his bakery to his outlet

This was reclamation.

Glad to see the wagon ready and being used. It was being painted for ages at Pali.
