The car was originally fitted with an HJ Mulliner Weymann body.  It was sold by Paddon Bros sometime between 1935 and 1937 when the Weymann body was taken off and the Wylder body was fitted.  Presumably the vertical radiator was fitted as well.

Wylder was bought by Alpe & Saunders in 1937 and ceased car coachbuilding, but carried on building hearses until the mid-sixties.  It was Wylders who built the body on GPK33, the Indian car in Fasal's book that had a list of extras as long as your arm.
