Wow!! What a great find! It's not everyday that you come across such a complete Car with original leather interiors. Apart from a handle and one of the meters everything seems in place.
Would make a great candidate for a sympathetic restoration

I know those cars and were shown to me about six months back by the famous "Saleem" of FIAT car parts fame. He had quoted 3.5L for Standard.
Austin was loaded with junk but seems to be lighter now.
If your photos are recent then the Mumbai rains have indeed cleaned the Standard all so well.

Raab rakha.

It appears to be a Lambretta Cento, made by SIL in the '80s. Very few survive though.

Spotted these 3 cars at a workshop at the outskirts of Jaipur, it will be very difficult for these cars to be on the road for many reasons.

This I think is a Standard, but not sure could be an Austin, someone can throw light on it , engine is out of the car.

This is a modified Herald (?), notice the Headlamp area, the roof also has been modified. The car has ownership issues.

This Rover P2 has just arrived in Jaipur from Delhi, no papers, no engine, no grill . Can be a donor car for Body parts though !!
