Solanki of Mumbai has one of around 1914.
There are many of the twenties. Tomorrow will start posting pics of Studebakers in India.
One collector in Lonavalla had 2, now 1, which he took to Australia for a rally.
Aapro Awini has one.
Guys, keep them coming, there are so many. And post war, there are dozens.

Cheers harit
Ok thats good news that there are four Erskines in India.

Default Studebakers in India

Have been using a Stude Commander for a while but is not making any sense. The V8's a guzzler and is now in need of a carburettor. Am on the look out for a FIAT Delight. Can anyone help me on these?

This 1955 Champion was part of a Pune collection, till she was sold to Delhi a few years back. I think she is yellow now.

I found this Nash as part of the Thakral collection in Delhi in an online article. Pretty unique.

Well looks like you guys in Pune are having fun. Is this Karl(Bhote)? If so am still looking for the Merc Heckflosse! But since getting one is so hard I thought would settle for the FIAT Delight. Will upload pics of my Stude Commander and Austin soon. Stay
