Restoring this car, if ever, would be a tricky process
Another view of the same car, was discussed earlier here

On display at Jungle Home Resorts, Turiya, Seoni dist (M.P.). It's a mid 1950's Standard Vanguard Phase II. This car was earlier clicked by me in a workshop, while undergoing repairs and painting work.

Sadly, while the Standard Vanguard Phase III was in production, the new car manufacturing policy, heralding the licence raj of the government was unvieled. The Vanguard Phase III's production came to an abrupt halt. They also stopped production of the Standard Super 8. The Standard Super 10 continued in production.

HM was licenced to make a mid- sized car and they continued with the Landmaster (the Studebakers were discontinued). PAL was permitted to manufacture one small car where they preferred the Fiat Millecento (the Fiat 500 and the Chrysler brands were discontinued) and Standard Motor Products of India Ltd was also told to make one small car. Mahindra and Mahindra was permitted to make an all terrain vehicle. The latter also got licence to make a Station Wagon bodied utility vehicle. Thus the Willys Station Wagon was born and the Willys jeeps continued to be produced.

Some newspapers in Jaipur had pictures and a story about a vintage car rally there yesterday.


Any idea? Any pictures from attendees?
