1900s Vintage Classic Cars Will Roll On Odisha Roads If Keonjhar King Has His Way

Keonjhar: Even while the government has passed a rule to scrap central and state government-owned vehicles older than 15 years, King Dhananjay Narayan Bhanjdeo of Odisha’s Keonjhar has started repairing vintage vehicles which were owned by his ancestors.

Dhananjay initiated the effort in the hope to get the wheels of the 1900s registered and set them rolling under the vintage policy of the state government.

The King of Keonjhar owns more than 100 luxury cars, jeeps, and bikes including a 1939 Ujjali car, a 1942 Ford GPW, a 1953 Morris Minor, Dodge, Plymouth, Ambassador, Standard Herald, Chevrolet, Austin, a 1960 Jawa, Royal Enfield, Norton, and Yamaha RD 350.

The vehicles were bought during the various reigns. As these vehicles have become obsolete and are not allowed to ply the roads currently. Hence, the wheels have been stored in the Keonjhar palace for generations now.

“We welcome the vintage policy of the state government. This will enable the registration of old vehicles following which we can run these vehicles during the festival,” the King told the media.
