you are right Stanher. I saw the saloon version of this car some two decades back.Nice to see one again.
Below text and picture Source Wikipedia
Also introduced in September 1954, and with a body identical to that of the A40 Cambridge, was the the A50 Cambridge which used a new 1.5 L (1489 cc)B-series four-cylinder engine with single Zenith carburettor which was good for 50 hp (37 kW). It sold better and remained in production through to 1957 with nearly 115,000 made.
As with its predecessor the A40 Somerset, the A50 Cambridge was built under license by Nissan in Japan; the arrangement ended in 1959.

Karl, that interests me. MHN what? Our family friends owned a similar car, BYJ 1187. A Nagpur car for sure. But MHN will be indicating a re-registration for this Austin.
Another MHN registered, older Austin 10 here.

Anjanji, I stumbled onto your this post now.Have you noticed the wrong configuration of the wipers in this picture. LHD wipers on RHD car. So PAL was not alone in committing this type of sin.

This car was always black then a pale green. Now I am shocked to see the car in this condition as this car was near Air India building and the current snap has been taken at willingdon club . Cheers
