Nope, those are the original steel wheels, but of an unusual design. Called Pilote wheels I believe.

Thats a 1934 Traction Avant. The inverted V strips on the radiator grill was missing.

Is this the same car that was in the workshop at Vellayambalam (next to lane to Jawahar Nagar) for the longest time ?

Why are the windhield wiper locations on the two cars so different - French built vs British ?

I suppose you do have some(?!) "MS/MD" reg'd cars in Kerala?

Besides, the white Amby beside the Baby Hindustan has a KL regn. so likely these are in Kerala?

These cars are located in Velmurugan Farm by the side of NH 47 near Palakkad (Pampampallam P.O). There are quite a few of these Indian classics along with few Jeeps and a few mint condition Indo-Jap 100 cc bikes from the eighties

I do not think that there is any tax exemption for Vintages and Classics in Kerela.

However, I may be proven wrong.

I have seen one Baby Hindustan parked for sale at Palakkad , It was noted on the sellers note that it is tax exempeted because of vintage. But it was a Tamil Nadu registered car.

It was also noted that it had vintage club membership.

Do we have any Vintage clubs in Kerala ?

In Tamil Nadu there is a provision which allows MVD to give tax exemption to vintage and classic cars.But this is subject to certain conditions and is not a ''blanket'' exemption.

The Newest addition to Kerala. This Austin in the middle showed up for one of my friends marriage at Thrissur.

I was informed that it was sold from Dindigual(Tamil Nadu)
