A Daimler used in the wedding of the Maharaja of Bikaner, Karni Singh. Any more information available on the car?

Sharing with permission from Shri Pallab Roy, who shared these pictures from Cossimbazar Rajbari, the Chevrolet belonged to his grand father.

This image was recently shared on a local facebook, by a gent associated with the Pierce Arrow club if I remember right

How rich were the Maharajas before Independence! Cars of the Maharajas-pierce.jpg

It talks about a well appointed Pierce Arrow replicating one that was built for the Shah. The poster in the back mentions a Maharaja connection - any chance that is genuine or just an ignorant PR gimmick?

I clearly remember this image (or a similar one) appearing in an old issue of the Indian Automobile Journal (or was it Car and Bike) written by Manvendra Barwani. Will dig it out. Eventually!

Great Snap

The car is definitely an English Car with the look of the rear wheels and rear glass on the Hood

The registration looks American. Most likely a visit by the Indian Polo Team.
