This was called an "Estate Wagon" either by Willys or mahindra, depending when it was made. It was a common issue for PWD / ministers/ Excecutive and Superintending Engineers/Goverment officers, etc.

Its Registered as a Ford 1930 with 24.03 BHP (KLT 736). As you said nice one for restoration.

Foby, where is this one ? I hope its with some serious collector or restorer and not with some one who hoarding it hopping to make a "kill" "some day"

Best Regards & Drive Safe
