Are those sidemount covers original ? Is that a blind on the rear of th passenger seat ?

Any idea if these are the original shades of colour and interior that came originally on this car. Also the woodwork looks like it has been polished, what this how the car came ?
Hi Wasif,

The workshop where the car was being furbished had poor light and the photographs even with flash did not come out well. You may recollect we have discussed this car before

Mail of the Dharmadhikhari himself
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1949891-post98.html

See the posts on Car # 34 will give you the details the car in full. Only mistake I had made was the date of acquisition which is now cleared in the earlier mail

The side mounts are original.

The side glass on the rear seat has a mechanical curtain which has not been fitted as yet. The small back glass has a blind.

The car was originally fully black. The new colour of the car and matching upholstery has been added on restoration.

The wood work has been polished.

Very clean car

Cheers

Captured by a friend of mine during his recent trip to Dharmasthala. This belongs to the Manjusha, the museum at Dharmasthala.

This beautiful car has some wonderful history. It was used by Gandhiji for his tour of Karnataka and Tamilnadu in 1929. The museum possesses a certificate given to Gandhiji on using this car. This car was got from Pondicherry in 1970.

There appears to be a confirmation from this picture taken in 1976, showing what looks like the same car. The foot note in Kannada describes that this car was used by Gandhiji when he toured Karnataka
