msabbasi, thank you for your comprehensive explanation earlier of the initials 'AA'.

If any photographs exist of B94KM in the Nawab's archives I would be very interested to see them.

Incidentally, HH is usually referred to as 'the Nawab', sometimes as 'the Ameer' (and in the Tatler article above as 'the Maharajah', but I assume that's a mistake). Is one more 'correct' than the other?

A good question. Certainly Maharajah is not correct. However both Nawab and Amir are used in correspondence and literature relating to His Highness.

In 1740 The correct title was Nawab Amir (http://www.worldstatesmen.org/Pakist...tml#Bahawalpur). The grandfather (1866 - 1899) of His Highness was titled Nawab Amir Sir Sadiq Muhammad Khan Abbasi IV Bahadur. While His Highness's father (1899 - 1907) had the title, Al-Haj Nawab Muhammad Bahawal Khan Abbasi V Bahadur. His Highness (1907 - 1966) had the title, Al-Haj Nawab Sir Sadiq Muhammad Khan Abbasi V Bahadur. The dates mentioned are the years of rule.

In real terms we find that His Highness is addressed as both Amir and Nawab in various places. I would say that both are correct. I would lean towards Nawab to be more correct.

With regards to a picture of B49KM, perhaps others can help.

travancore, thank you for posting the classified ad for B94KM. I would be very interested to know when this was published, and in which publication.

msabbasi, thank you too for your further explanation regarding His Highness's title.

I found it, thank you. it was from Frank Dale's advertisement in the March 1966 issue of Motorsport Magazine. Helpfully, the Motorsport archive is available online:
