Whole variety of the Presidential garage at that time is in the pic I guess. The Grosser, Impalas, W123s and Cadillacs.

Looks like the protests when a foreign dignatory comes seems to have been the style then too.

Can't make out the placards clearly, still, 'stop harrasment of Indians in Britain' and something about abortion?

I believe this is a function in Kerala. Likely the Governor's car. Perhaps Ajit Prasad Jain who was Governor from 1965-66.

From the same event. Likely a 1962 Impala (Bel Air ?).
