Yes, you are correct - it is an amphibious vehicle. Believe it is a DUKW (called "duck"). Widely used by the Allies in WWII, but needs more research. Still used in the U.S. for river tours.

I have posted pictures of this car earlier. It is a Wanderer on display at the Netaji Bhawan, a museum, the home of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose in Kolkata. The picture postcard title says that this "car was used by Netaji to escape from Calcutta to Gomoh" in January 1941 (during night hours). The car is kept in a glass enclosure and photography is allowed here, as it is housed in the compound of the museum. Within the building photography is not allowed.
