Here is a lovely unique one - a 1930s Vauxhall Hearse, shot here in Pune in the 1990s

The car was subsequently sold and a platform fashioned for the rear end of the body. This is what it looked like some years back when for sale. It is now in a Pune collection.

In 1924 BOM 30 was registered to Mr. M G Myer, Apollo Bunder. I wonder of these numbers were reassigned at some point, or these lorries were sub-contracted from private owners.
