I assume this series of MYS was run much earlier. It returned somewhere in the 60s/70s but the older series would have been re-registered at the time. So both were valid for their time.

Raj Kapoor's first car was also the similar Olds 98 Convertible. Is this the same one ? It was featured in his film Barsaat (1949) and was parked at the R.K. Studios, Chembur, Mumbai for a long, long time.

This book is printed by TIL (Tractors India Limited). TIPL a subsidiary (now it being a separate entity) has been a Caterpillar Dealer for the last 72 years.

My connection with TIPL is my work. This book traces the history of TIL and has some nostalgic pictures -

The Book

Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars-imag5549.jpg

The founders of TIL (note the registration number of wheel tractor in the background).

Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars-imag5548.jpg

Alan Ramsay can be seen in the pictures (we all know him well)

He can be seen racing his Allard in this picture

Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars-imag5550.jpg

The picture of TIL Facility (Taratalla road) (Still existing) Cat Track Type tractors are seen with a Ford pickup in the back and Hindustan 14 on the side

Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars-imag5551.jpg

In front of the Victoria Memorial, Calcutta (Cat DW20 Wheel tractor and with Cat W20 trailer) for Central Waterways and Power Commission

Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars-imag5552.jpg

Cat Tractor passing the famous Howrah bridge. Note the Chevy trucks on side

Nostalgic automotive pictures including our family's cars-imag5554.jpg

Few more pictures from the book

Note the same Ford truck / pickup. Coles crane (for which TIL has a collaboration).

Now please tell me what is the big truck on right in this picture.

The cars seem to be an Adler and Chrysler products which should be of interest to Bulldogji.
