We'll forgive you for thinking it to be a french car, There is a Panhard which is near identical in the design of its front.

Does anyone know if any Dyna survives in India?
In the 1980's I had seen one in Bhopal, visible standing on a main road. Bright orange in colour.
Next I saw that car in Mumbai, in the compound of WIAA at Churchgate, supposed to belong to one of the automobile engineers working there. The engine was out, on a workbench and attempts were made at repairs. Later I heard, but cannot confirm, that she was sent to chor bazar.
I was told somewhere down the line that the car had belonged to the Maharaja of Mysore.

Cheers harit
