Guess what! I remember that article or a similar one of that period very well.
Guess who is on the right of Mr. Mallya, on the left when you look at the picture? Nitin Dossa!
And if I remember correctly, Dossa mentioned how this was a proud moment for India or Indian motoring, or something to that effect.

Very right harit, you've recognized him. To Mr Mallya's left is Mr Mohinder (Chubi) Lalwani.

Thats a write up in Indian Auto from April 1993. As late as 1993, someone in Delhi was using a 1967 Herald with a gas conversion kit.

I remember that banged up Beetle incident which happened in Worli, unfortunately the driver a Parsi lady died in that. There were two ladies in the car which was probably blue. Another car had cut in front and the lady lost control.

Oops sorry, did not know the relationship.

This appeared in the DNA.
The Beetle is not Kasli's because of the roof.
That modded Hindusthan is probably the Goa car.
That Chevy looks like DKG's restoration. Wonder where these pictures came from, so random.

Cheers harit

Sorry to hear that. I distinctly remember seeing this image as a kid. The Beetle appears to be a pre-57 Oval window car.

The Beetle again appears to be Oval window, and with those wheel trims I would say it is from a Bandra collection. The Chevy is definitely not the car from DKG's thread, but probably a RJ registered car that attended a Bombay event a few years back.

The accident happened in 1970's.
The Chevy appears to have no engine, the picture is from the time it was undergoing restoration, wherever that was.

I think there is an error here, this cannot be one of the first PAL cars. This DeSoto is around 1949/50, they started in 1946/47.

Quite factual.Indeed none of us were born then! And we do have older Dodges, a generation older than these sold in India by PAL.
