yes ID 561 is Enfield 8000

The Enfield 8000 was designed from the ground-up to be an electric car. It was produced by Enfield Automotive of London (England) in the mid-1960s. These were 2-door, 4-seater cars with a reported range of 39 to 90 km per charge (depending on driving conditions) and a maximum speed of 64 km/h. The curb weight of the vehicle was 975 kg. It used a tubular steel chassis/frame and aluminum body panels. The motor was connected to a single-speed differential. Reversing the car was accomplished by reversing the drive motor by means of a forward/reverse electric switch on the dashboard. An on-board charger charged both the traction batteries and the accessory battery from any 240-volt, 13-amp outlet (common in Europe). Approximately 70 were purchased by the Electricity Council (England) in 1966 and supplied to electric utilities in England and Wales to demonstrate the practicality of electric cars. Early versions were fitted with 8 x 12-volt traction batteries and a single 12-volt accessory battery. The traction batteries were set up in parallel pairs, with the pairs connected in series to provide 48 volts. Problems with unequal charging and discharging of the parallel pairs resulted in the use of 8 x 6-volt batteries wired as a single series string (still producing 48 volts) being used in later versions of the car. The basic vehicles used a combination of battery switching (12, 24 and 48 volt settings) and field control on the motor to provide speed control.

Possibly part of the 59 Pontiac line up, but I can't pinpoint what exactly.

Yup ID:564 is a 1961 Olds Cutlass Sport Coupe.
The interior was very new for a car back then having bucket seats for a column shift. It had a four-barrel carb and the V-8 (The Rockette Engine) was good enough for 185 hp. It came with a standard auto but an optional four speed manual was available.

Default ID:564; 1961 Oldsmobile Cutlass F85

Hey Karl, Ojas and Gogi:
Great to see you guys again. Been a long time.

Bingo Ojas! you're spot on. ID:564 is a 1961 Oldsmobile Cutlass F85.

1961 was the first year for GM's new A-body compact unibody platform.
Somewhat boxy as amit V8 describes it.

Based on this platform, were the Olds Cutlass and her sisters, the Buick Special, rear-engined Chevrolet Corvair and front-engined (but Corvair-based) Pontiac Tempest.

There's a fresh & lovely Corvair, driven by Mumtaz with Rajesh Khanna riding shotgun, in the movie "Aap ki Kasam (1974)"

The Olds F-85 Cutlass was the only A-body to use a floor-shift automatic transmission.

It came as a two-door sedan, a four-door sedan and as a 4-door station wagon. It used the new Oldsmobile/Buick Rockette aluminum 215 cid V8 [3,532 cc]. This mill developed 155 bhp and 285 Newton-metres of torque with a Rochester 2-barrel carburetor. An optional 4-barrel carb upped power to 185 bhp.

Interestingly, the world's first turbocharged vehicle ever offered for sale, was the 1962 Olds Cutlass Turbo Jetfire with the turbo-supercharged small V8.
