A Taxi in Goa.
Any guesses which marque is this? Maybe a Pontiac 1955?

Re: Old automotive pictures from Portuguese India

Another Goa pic.
This is in Panjim, my guess is that this is near to Tourist Hotel in Panjim, at the Mandovi River bank.
The car appears to be a Simca.
The location appears to be a fuel filling station, we see oiul drums and an old globe type of pump.
A fuel station on the footpath? Maybe someone will remember this and comment. There was anyway a petrol pump in the vicinity, somewhere dividing the road. I have a pic of that for later.

Cheers harit

No chance of it being an early Ambassador (launched in 1958 if I remember), could it? The rear screen profile not being very clear, I'm not too sure!
