A Jawhar Studebaker coupe, right hand drive around 1946. Wonder if it survives.

How rich were the Maharajas before Independence! Cars of the Maharajas-nawanagar-mercedes-delhi-may-1946.jpg

Maharaja Digvijaisinhji of Nawanagar and a Mercedes. Delhi, May 1946.

Curiously for that date, it seems to have a regular license plate. Is this a known car ?
