prem sir,
This Austin belongs to Jacob engineering works near Sreekaryam.Hope you remember them.
Dr.Ambadi did have a similar black Austin of England which was later with his son in law or so and was in their house in BELHAVEN gardens.
The other black car seems to be a FORD FAIRLANE LHD which has been under restoration for many years!!!

The car on the right certainly looks like a 1931 Dodge DH6 - with the lower bumper bar installed upside down.

It looks like the same 1935 DODGE from Mysore with a diesel engine which was advertised for sale a few years back.

This must be the dodge car which was there in a malayalam auto journal a few months ago. IIRC the car is in kottayam with a petrol bunk owner.

Its a Dodge Polara - I think it was a 1965 model. This was with one of the film producers from Calicut area. I forgot who it was. May be with the KTC group.

It is indeed a Dodge polara V8. Used to be with the KTC group, now in Cochin. A very very original car, and I think it's still in original paint. The current owner has neglected the car and now is in a very pathetic state.
