That is a Triumph Roadster either a 1.8 or the 2.0. These cars are the start of the TR series.

The unique item on these cars was the rumble saet at the rear which has its own windscreen that can be lifted up which makes the car a dual cowl type.

The engine block on the 1.8 is the same as was used on the Jag 1.5 Sedans and the 2.0 was common with the Vanguard

There are a few in Bombay and I know of atleast two in Hyderabad one of which is a single owner car in silver which is regularly driven.

BTW I just enlarged the pic and noted the yellow orange car on the left of the Triumph. What car is it. Looks like a rear engined car like a DAF or a Imp. Overall it looks like an Anglia but those vents on the rear are something not seen on Anglias.
