This Packard Clipper from Bangalore, was in long term ownership with one family. The KVCCC Members were hoping that one of us would get an opportunity to buy it. Unfortunately for us and before anyone could realize this car was sold on to MH.

This could be a preservation class car.

Thanks again to Shrivardhan Kanoria for these gems.

Quote:
Another blast from the past - 1934 Packard Super 8 - bought by my father, Sri Shashi Kumar Kanoria, in the 1970s directly from the Maharaja of Nawalgarh, Rajasthan. He serviced the car and drove it down to Calcutta. Back then the roads from the interiors of Rajasthan, were not even motor able, which he negotiated, along with the highway drive all the way to Calcutta.

The sole reason for letting go of this beauty in the 1980's was that he wasnt particularly fond of cars post 1930 (which he later repented)

Ever heard of Aimila Automobile Company in Bombay? I always thought that it was only Dadajee. Maybe someone knows how to ask the source for more info.

Cheers harit
