From the attire, the photo's clearly from the 70s, so the car must've been brand new then- or just a few years old.

Some contributions

1 - My maternal grandfather , in his younger days !
2 - Morris @ victoria memorial
3 - My paternal Grandpa - Car unidentified / pic says 1956 Delhi.
4 - Probably a Karachi Pic . looking at the registration , i have a few more of the same car .
5 - Lambretta 3 wheeler , undated pic , incidentally , the place in the background is still the same , with the water tower (my Calcutta friends would know what this is ) . The company was founded in 1865 and is still going strong

That seems to be more like a Ford Popular or Prefect as the Hillman had a distinct boot that protruded from the body line.

Definitely a Prefect- the Popular (a.k.a Pop) was only 2-door.
