Lovely pictures Indrojit, and indeed a superb lineup of vintage beauties. Nice to see some UP registered cars.
BTW what sort of rubber is used as a tyre on that Morris fire truck. I don't think that they are proper tyres although they are in better shape than Lucknow's Merryweather fire engine which is still running on worn out rubbers getting thin at every rally.
If possible, do share some info on the winner cars.

Thanks Farhan for sharing these lovely pics, and thanks Indrojit for posting all.

Nice to see a couple of new cars. Who can shed light on the powder blue Rolls? Is she a known Indian car or a more recent import? Dare I comment that a couple of other seemingly fresh restorations are looking glaringly out of line - a shame.

If you look at car no. 157, Its jeep made by FIAT. Now did fiat ever make jeeps and what were they commissioned for ? Was it for the Italian army ? Any more details and info on this as well ?

All the car's look great. The light blue Rolls Royce is very pretty and looks like a Gurney Nutting bodied drop head cabriolet. The blue Dodge looks like a chop top 4 door. For interest for my Merc, what brand white wall tyres are the 2 Mercs sporting? Mr. Seth's Lagonda has a very similar dash to contemporary Alvis's. Great pics Indrojit.

Prithvi

The RR (UK 04 K 0010) looks very nice. Waiting to read about its history from the experts

Like the Studebaker (DLV 10) looks nice. the pre-war Studebaker were always pretty cars. This seems to be a 6 Cyl.

The Pontiac (DEC 5331) body style is quite rare. I guess there are not many rumble seat(doctors coupe) cars of the late 30's surviving in India. Most of the Doctor's Coupe were of the pre 30's largely the Fords. The car seems to be a 1937/38

The snaps from the Rallies in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkatta always makes us in South feel like poor cousins. The cars in South are not much of a match.

Unfortunately in Bangalore we do not get to do rallies as the Police Commissioner has made it clear that he is not interested in Vintage Car Rallies as he feels his staff are already too stressed with the current Bangalore Traffic

Thanks Indro for the pictures.

Cheers
