FINTAIL Lovely. BTW, "BYH" is a Poona registration of the very late Fifties and early Sixties ,is it not?
And are those headlamp units Lucas 700s? They do seem to look so.All in all, an IMMACULATELY maintained car.

newcoolgadgets Beautiful car, and very well maintained. I remember seeing one regularly in my school days, in this exact paint scheme in Nagpur. I specially like the last pic. It has that old world charm...the rusted gate, the courtyard, the uncrowded neighborhood...and the Pennant standing ready for duty. Oh! the good old life! 13th June 2010
