Came across this Indian DeSoto on the DeSoto Club website. Any idea where this is?

This is the MYC registered DeSoto which came from Chikmagalur to Bangalore and was sold on to Hyderabad. In Bangalore, her colour scheme changed to light blue and white.

There is a DeSoto parked in the compound of a building on Carmichael Rd, I pass it every daw when walking my dog. Does it belong to one of the BHP members?

The owners of Kelagur Coffee and Tea Estates, in Chikmagalur district in Karnataka owned a Desoto - the colur was greenish, if i remember right. I remember going to Bangalore in it as a child. Someone in that organisation may have details. I searched this website out:
