1935 Buick Series 90, Model 90L, 7-passenger “purdah” Limousine
Purdah was essential in Indian royalty, be it Hindus or Muslims. The ladies of Awadh were highly social, attending marriages and ceremonies amongst other members of their ilk. Buicks provided this luxury like very few other marquees in a market where Purdah was an essential feature of luxury and privacy and a source of entertainment and mobility to connect. The Ayodhya Buick in the Titus collection is a rare surviving specimen that was specially customised for the purpose.
