I think I know this car which you are talking about, it is a MM LOWITE TOURER with a classic car enthusiast near THIRUVALLA.
If you are interested in that, pm me for details of the owner.

Hi Foby.sebastian,

Thanks for sharing nice pictures of Morris 8 E, lot of Morris cars were spotted recently, seems this model was popular car of its times. Seems this Morris was in use and most of the original things were in place.

One Black Hillman also seen in the background.
