No It is not an original tourer
as said earlier all Morris minors had Trafficators till 1960
These are most likely indian make repro tail lamps.ITALIAN TORINO make tail lamps are a rarity.

Yes, its most likely a mid-90s Tercel.

I think Tercels and Starlets were the most commonly seen imports in north Kerala around the 2000-2005 timeframe. We used to see one of them almost every time we drove through Malappuram in those days.
