Lovely car. In my college days I had access to a similar car which I took to college a couple of times. Easy to drive, and when you have such a car you don't need to buy a Nano. But always make sure your brakes are OK.
Is there any history to the car, and do you have pictures of the car before restoration started?

Cheers harit

The car was bought from Lucknow and before that was in Ayodhya ,
the registration changed from UPX to USJ some time in the 1950's.

I still have to do some research and find out about the first owner.

couple of pictures of the car before restoration.

I believe not many Pre war Morris Minors OHC cars have survived in India.


Cheers
Kartik

Nice car! And nice resto too!

BTW, a question- how and why did the regn. change when both places are of the same state??

Yours is the 4th ohc Minor I know of in India, there are two in Ahmedabad, and one in Delhi, plus other sv Minors

KartikeyaL 9th February 2012 11:56

The car was first owned by Raja Saheb of Ayodhya and then passed on to Shri V.N. Mishra, IPS (Retd.), who re-registered the car in lucknow sometimes in late forties , early fiftees , so the car lost the UPX number and got the USJ no.

The car then remained in ownership of shri V.n Mishra and then was acquired by me last year. I am trying to get some old documents from Shri Mishra , hopefully some old pictures too.

regards
Kartik

Hi,

The clubs in UK would be very interested to know about any pre-war Morris minors in India (1928-34) , do you have any more details about the OHC minors in Ahmedabad and Delhi, some pictures if possible would be great.

Thanks
Kartik
