The "Killer" Car That Godse Rode

The car that Nathuram Godse reportedly rode to Birla Bhawan on January 30, 1948, to assassinate Mahatma Gandhi, is now owned by Pervez Sidduiqi, a vintage car collector. The 1930, six cylinder, 40 bhp Studebaker runs on both manual and automatic transmission, and has a top speed of 160 kmph. It was originally bought by a king.

As per Sidduiqui, the car was in police custody till 1978, when it was auctioned. He bought it in 1999 from Kamaal Motors Bareilly, where he saw it parked in the garage. After it was repaired, Sidduiqui not only took part in various vintage car shows and rallies but has also taken it on trips to Shimla and Jaipur. On the road, it is a head turner.

The car has been aptly named “Killer”.
