Default Unidentified beauty outside Mumbai Samachar Office !!!

Spotted this beauty parked outside "Mumbai Samachar" newspaper office, Fort when me & TBHPian rutwij (Rutwij Mamtora) has gone to Gift Centre to buy few scale models. Seems to be a re-registered car.
Is this car is owned by Mumbai Samachar owner, Hormusji Cama who also has several other vintage beauties ???
(Experts, please identify the car, I haven't been able to recognize it.)

The car is a boldly styled Armstrong Siddeley tourer. An Engligh car, she did participate in a rally in Bombay a few years back.

Default BYJ 1514 - Austin 6 (1936 (?))

While I was on my way to Supercar Rally yesterday morning, I was waiting outside RR showroom, Atria Mall for my friend to pick me up; seen this 1936 (?) Austin 6; very beautifully maintained car. The owner met someone in RR showroom & then drove the car towards Tardeo.
The car was very silent, very well maintained & started in first key turn.

Hey that is the famous Mr. S.S. Dabholkar, with his showroom condition Austin Six. He's a regular at the VCCCI rallies, always cheerful and full of enthusiasm, he claims: "Car and owner, both the same age, both in mint condition !"

Should be the one belonging to Marespand's father, a Parsi priest. This is among the or even the best Morris 8 in the country, I believe.

The Morris 8 posted above is not the one owned by the Dadachanjis.
The one in the picture hereunder is. Note the positioning of the regn plate under the rear bumper.
