My mistake.

The car is a replica Austin 1 built on an old maruti 800 platform. It was built at a workshop by referring to a photo in a magazine.

YES THE BLACK ONE IS A 1963 FORD FAIRLANE, COMPACT, THESE WERE SOLD NEW IN AUSTRALIA, AND PROVED VERY POPULAR WITH THEIR SMALL BLOCK 260 V8. THESE WHERE AN INTERMEDIATE MODEL FILLING THE GAP BETWEEN THE SMALLER FALCON SERIES AND THE LARGER GALAXY/FAIRLANE 500 MODELS.

Its a 1929 Chevy tourer, belonging to the popular automobiles group. It used to be at their elamkulam branch till about 12 years back, disappeared for a while, and now reappeared at their hyundai used car showroom.
