As you will be knowing, these are relatively rare in India. There was a similar car in or around Hyderabad many years ago. No idea where she is now. And cars did migrate to other states, so this car could still be alive elsewhere under another registration. Perhaps one could go to the RTO and check.

In the 1969 blockbuster Aradhana, actor Rajesh Khanna is seen driving around in a grey Willys CJ3B registered SKM 701.

But how come the difference in the foglights (single vs. double) and shape of the numberplate too?
