Ahead of the wagon seems to be a 1954 Dodge (side trim indicates) or else could be a Desoto/Plymouth from the same stable

Meanwhile, just came across this 1965 Tamil movie with a nice Fiat Topolino in one scene. Incidentally, the same movie has been playing on TV now and could see a couple of other cars in it too, a Ford Prefect and a Herald! Unfortunately didn't get to click proper pics. and not able to find the entire movie online! If anyone has a link to it, please share.

The Packard (NTRs) had spent sometime in Madras(chennai) where it was registered and lost its original Hyderabad plates.Then it was brought back to Hyderabad around 1976 and its got the current ADR plates

Austin Healey from the movie Minor Babu (1973 ?). I cannot say if it is a 100-6 or a 3000.

The registration seems to be MYO-6932. Interestingly, the car is Left Hand Drive.

A Plymouth Valiant (?) from Puthiya Velicham, a 1979 Malayalam movie. These are the highest quality screenshots I could manage (the registration number seems to be MDB 4378)

From the film Dil Deke Dekho (1959) starring Shammi Kapoor and Asha Parekh. The song "raahi mil gaye rahon mein," is crooned by Mohammed Rafi. Incidentally, it was the first film both for Asha Parekh (released on her 17th birthday) and the lady music director Usha Khanna. Rajendra Nath is seen trailing the Willys (LHD) jeep in a Plymouth Savoy (RHD) with a two tone colour. The director was Ram Mukherjee (who passed away on 22/10/2017) , father of actor Rani Mukherjee.
