I think we have a positive identification - what say?
What motorcycle is in the background?

There was a red convertible in Mumbai, came from either MP or Bengal. Entered in a rally in the 1980's. Resided in Simla House Malabar Hill. After some time they lost interest, she rotted there and went to Chor Bazar. A genuine convertible just as pictured above. Sad.

Harit do you know what series cars these were? cause I could not find reference to them on the internet. They seem to be super rare internationally. Not one picture of a matching car abroad. I am curious. Maybe we should move this discussion to the Rover thread!

The Cars are lying in the MCD impound , " resourceful " people have been able to source parts from the vehicles lying there all for a "fee" there is 60s american car lying there which has steadily lost parts , and now is barely a shell.
