This is a TOYOTA FJ40. A CLASSIC 4WD in its own right.
A lot of the vehicles were brought in by the United Nations and USAid.

I'd say it's a 1970's Toyota Land Cruiser. Take a look at this page:

Vintage Toyota Land Cruisers - 1981 Land Cruiser

Thats a Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40
They were sent by the UN and came with the US Aid in the late 1960s and early 70s.

Quite a few are available in Bhopal, Kerala & Orissa.
