More Photos of an Indian Selby
One of only 4 surviving Standard Selbys
My regular Correspondent in India, Karl Bhote writes:
On my recent trip to Delhi I met Mr. Dimpy Kapoor who has a few vintage and classic cars, including this Standard. He tells me he bought it in the 80s from a mechanic in Jaipur, and it has been a consistent prize winner in all the events in Delhi for many years, and regularly does trips covering a couple of hundered kms.
Here are more photos of the Selby.
Its good to see this car and it's owner. The Selby was coachbuilt by Avon on the 9Hp chassis, but catalogued as a Standard. I have featured this car, one of only 4 known surviving examples of this model, before, but its good to have a full colour feature on it, which will no doubt assist anyone who is restoring a Selby
I am always keen to feature Standards that are being used and restored in India, so please keep sending them to me.
