Really rare cars. One of a kind.

Let's not discuss this MORGAN,
It's a car that's best FORGOTTEN.
For within it's skin.
Lies something not quite AKIN,
At best, an aberration ,
Not quite a MORGAN.

Now let's discuss the AUSTIN,
Maybe it's skin is AUS tralian TIN,
At heart it's NOT,
Something that can be called HOT,
At best , a fabricator's CONCEPTION.

Found this video of Tutu Dhawan's (ex-Mahmudabad) Chevrolet Master Deluxe 1934. Not sure if it has been posted before.

I had posted a picture some time ago, but had no idea who's car it was or the history.

Great to see Chevy dedicating a section to its Indian history, though a closer look shows its probably not put together well enough. This page shows a DeSoto convertible (rare car btw!) being followed by what is probably a 47/48 Chrysler, being proclaimed as a Chevy. The Chrysler Corporation would've been their arch rival at the time.

The first picture I think could be the Nizam in one of his cars, certainly not a Chevy.

Also saw a La Salle "posing" as a Chevrolet...gave them the benefit of the doubt, as it was at least part of the Government Motors family
