The car I think belongs to Kashyap in Delhi, and I think was advertised for sale, in case you are feeling nostalgic.
Karl, thanks for the additional pics

Even if "nostalgia" is willing the "pocket" is not

Best Regards & Drive Safe

Report & Pics: 21 Gun Salute Vintage Car Rally, 2017-jind-packard-110-1940-not-120-1939-frt-3q-l-21-gun-2017.jpg

I have seen this car listed as a "1936" and "1939".

Going by the round "110" badge on the side of the bonnet; and the unique bumper over riders with built in reflectors, I think it is a "1940" model.

Could someone confirm if it is ex-Jind or ex-Nabha please ?

The car is a 1940 Packard 110 convertible coupe. These are the six cylinder cars. In 1941 the headlights moved into the fenders

I was at the Stuttgart Retro Classics today and happened to come across this fine example, bearing this proud entry badge
