Somebody guess this large viridian green land yacht with the suicide doors.



Granted, the marque is too easy as is the model, but the model-year is also important.

ID 195, amongst my all time favorites, the 1946 Chrysler...produced till 48...
the regular 4 door body style was available with spitfire 6 cylinder 114 hp in the royal and windsor, and spitfire 8 cylinder 135 hp with the new yorker bodystyle...actually the 8 cylinder cars were slightly wider, with very few body panels interchangable (including grille and fenders), but looked identical! fitted with fluid drive, they were semi automatic..the new yorker also featuerd uprated suspension and brake components, along with a different wheel rim design, though the whole range featured smaller 15 inch wheels for the first time.

My picture is of a 1947 Chrysler New-Yorker.





The Chrysler Airflow was a completely different car from a decade before it.

Produced from 1934 to 1937, the 1937 Chrysler Airflow had a chrome "waterfall" grille with trim that flowed forward and downward in an arc.
The almost flush headlamps flanked the grille and the rear wheels had fender skirt-spats.



This radical departure in design from the expectations of the post-Depression 1930s car buyers, made the car very unpopular.

well ajmat, ram is right and as you can see, the air flow is a dynamically and drastically different car.

The Chrysler in question was made with two engines with same bodies with some notable and not so notable differences in the outside trim and interior trim and fittings. the main being the six or eight cyl engines.
the six cyl engined cars were caled the chrysler WINDSOR and the ones with an eight cyl were called NEW YORKER.
there was also a limousine seven seater version available in both with a centre partition and all.

What is this white car?

It's too easy to broadly identify just the make and decade of manufacture.
So, do clearly identify make, model and year.

What was unusual about this car's engine and gearbox?

ID:197 is a standard Herald convertible (by Triumph). It brings a smile to my face too.
Also a popular shaadi car today.

My dad's first car was a Herald coupe in the 70s. The rear wheels were always tilted as she ran down the road. Finally one day the rear axle collapsed in a busy intersection of Bangalore.

Spot on, Karl !
It is indeed a 1968 Triumph GT6 Mark-1

The GT6 was similar to its poorer cousin the 4-cylinder Triumph Spitfire roadster, but it had a pushrod 6 cylinder 2-litre engine and a coupe hardtop body.

No factory Spitfire ever had anything bigger than a 4-cylinder.
[except the Battle of Britain Supermarine Spitfire, with its 2,050 BHP supercharged Rolls-Royce Merlin V-12]

The GT6's 1,998 cc engine breathed through twin Zenith-Stromberg carburetors, developed 95 BHP @ 6000 rpm and propelled the car to 171 km/h. It wore 155R13 radials on ultra lightweight 13-inch wire wheels.
Like our Standard Herald or an E-type Jaguar of its time, the entire front cowl flipped over forwards, affording easy access to the engine.
