Both the Lincoln and the '49 Pontiac are great looking examples of the period - American post-war to the late 40s. They bring out the massive proportions, grace and strength very well.

Here is a beautiful 1954 Chevrolet BelAir coupe from the provenance of Oel & Kaimarah Raj. Oel has the famous Frog Temple

The car remains with the family and is now being restored in Lucknow. Complete history of the car including documents of its original registration from New Jersey, US, is there with the family. Currently sports a UP number, UP31 A 9595

Yes it is.

However what is incorrect is the registration number.

A very handsome car , Jehangir in the background to ensure she runs as she was meant to

Posting Karl's pictures from the Cartier thread here, there are couple of more coupes which might qualify for this thread, but I have not posted them, over to experts.

Congratulations Shivraj88. The car looks a million bucks Happy motoring!

Was this a period colour scheme?

Cheers

The colors are period Cadillac El Centro Green and Fair Oaks green, it appears more golden yellow in the sun and greener in the shade!

However I took the liberty of inverting the lower and upper shades. I preferred the way it looked and the larger expanse of the lighter color is easier on the driver in the Delhi heat (a learning from my my very dark blue Dearborn '34 Ford)

The strictly accurate configuration on a scale model below
