The white car is a 1940 Packard 110 (six cylinder) convertible coupe

The blue and silver car is a 1934 Packard Eight (not the super eight) tourer

The golden car is a (not very sure but can establish if we study a clearer picture) 1930 Packard 740 Tourer

That is a double exposed photo, showing a Mercedes and a Buick. I dont see a Packard. The cars are/were (?) part of Lalaji's phenomenal collection in Delhi.

PNC is a 6 cylinder Packard which was subsequently lying in a workshop in Delhi partly dismantled. There were other cars like a Chevy Monte Carlo, Ford Galaxie, Adler, London Talbot unfortunately chopped and some more. Then she was restored in yellow and sold. I believe that there is a Nabha connection.
The others are a lovely bunch, wonder where they have disappeared.

Cheers harit

The lovely 1938 Packard Super Eight, 16th series, model 1605, body type: convertible sedan, body number: 1143, formerly owned by Nawab Dawood Jung Bahadur, later bought by a businessman at Siddiamber bazaar, then owned by the sixth Nizam and eventually bought by NTR. Here NTR is seen using the car for a parade when he was CM

Sadly the car lost its original engine when NTR dieselised it. Now it has a small six cylinder Dodge engine.

The original colour of the car apparently was ivory with the radiator grill shell in full chrome too. Now its a dark green

Name:  Dawood Packard.jpg

Nice Packard, for long time I was hearing about NTR's Packard, but sorry to hear it lost its original engine.

Curious to see and hear about your restored Packard (open top), any news about it. Also would love to see your Chevy restoration update
if possible.

We are in the last stages of the restoration. Once the car is done will get permission from the owner and post a comprehensive record of work carried out. Its come out very well. Have driven it twice on the road and the mechanicals are probably very close to what one would expect from a new Chevy
