More FB Pictures from the Bangalore Bygone

The famous Nilgiris Store still proudly stands on Brigade Road, next the Rex Theater.

Based on the movie running in Rex, it is estimated that the picture is from 1969-70.

Just an observation, in the first pic all vehicles are standing and a wrong angle to the street marking, this must be a "posed" pic. And Coke was sold with Milk Nice fleet they had.

Check the car encircled in the pic below once more, it will be a W108.

On Marine Drive there was some digging and this poor Hudson missed to notice the mound and crashed right into the repair site. The encircled towers still stand today, somewhere near the signal opposite the girls hostel. The "Caution" sign may not have been illuminated, whatever the cause, the car crashed badly.

A friend of mine from the US has identified this car as a 1929 Essex Challenger Phaeton

Quote:
Introduced as a lower-priced companion to the parent Hudson marque in 1919, the Essex soon became synonymous with both high performance and reliability when an example averaged over 60mph for 50 hours in December 1919, a stunt which the company followed up by a successful four-car transcontinental trek in 1920. Essex pioneered low-cost closed coachwork in the United States, its four-seater sedan being only slightly more expensive than the tourer in 1922, and marginally cheaper by 1925. Essex's big news for 1924 was the switch from four to six cylinders. The new sidevalve power unit started life at an unusually small - for the United States – 130ci in capacity, before being enlarged to 144.5ci part way through the year. Renamed 'Super Six' for 1927, the Essex gained a larger (153.5ci) and more powerful engine that year and four-wheel Bendix mechanical brakes the year after. Stylistically, the Essex looked broadly similar to its Hudson parent, albeit on a smaller scale.

In 1929, the Super Six was renamed the 'Challenger' and tweaked with a beltline that continued around the entire length of the car and a larger radiator shell. To promote the new car, Essex dealers and distributors staged a number of tests in March of '29, calling the event 'National Challenge Week'. Among the many trials was a fuel consumption test in which a Challenger drove 30.5 miles through New York City on 1.5 gallons of gas—no small feat by the standards of then or now!
