Incidentally this great car sold for just USD 55,000/- at the MECUM auction in August 2019.

From a video shared by a friend, I have been able to take pictures of the Mysore 1926 New Phantom Hooper Cabriolet de Vile Chassis # 110YC

One can clearly see the colour is green with blue mudguards

Seen here sporting Mysore 3

Looks like the 1927 GRJ1 Eng. No. W8E Barker Tourer, originally imported by Nawab of Sachin state, has found its way back to Pune after a brief stint in Delhi.

Screenshot taken from the current owner's Instagram profile.

The Rolls Royce with the Scalloped mudguards is currently in the UK with Mr. Fasal. He recently completed the restoration of that car. I believe it is a car from the garage of the maharaja of Patiala.

What is perhaps the first serious Rolls-Royce accident in India (ca March, 1910). The car involved is a 1908 Silver Ghost (Chassis 60738). The owner, Mr.W.A .Beardsell was a prominent Madras businessman in the late 19th / early 20th century. The attached press reports detail the supernatural causes of the accident(s) near Anderson Bridge 😜

Some superb shots of a superb 20HP - 71A6 for Gwalior, and shortly after that Hyderabad (did Gwalior take delivery?)
