I was in Goa last week and chanced upon an opportunity to take a look at the Caddy and the Merc which belonged to the last Portuguese governor of Goa. The cars are in the possession of Goa state museum and will be soon placed there:

Where in Goa is this Raj Bhavan Cadillac located?

I would like to see it again and refresh my childhood fascination of watching her whiz past on DB Road

Nice pics cityvic - this is one unique looking Caddy. This car used to be parked at a Mumbai car dealer (Choksi) for a long time and I always admired it whenever I saw it. And then it suddenly disappeared :(

If you are sure it is the same car, it spends most of its time in Bandra, in the family since the 1960s. Its is regularly used, and works well (not too many Jags can say that!). It may not be concours, but in pretty good shape if I remember.

Picture is dated 1920.

Why wouldn't a true blooded Frenchman have gone in for a 45 CV Renault instead ?
