Ah, yes! Thank you!
It looks like a Mark I since the grille is separate from the headlight/indicator units (while on the Mark II the grille is flush with the lights)

Sunbeam and Alvis had this sort of a "V" radiator grill.

It would be a 1948 Fleetmaster if it had the vertical center piece, and you are correct, without a view of the grill we are left to wonder and ponder. As for the fleet of RR's, I wouldn't have expected any less accuracy than was shown by the "car nuts" of India. Amazing!

Maybe but if you visit the lanes of Banashankari (in particular), Jayanagar and Koramangala, you will be surprised by the number of classics you will find! Not the vintage variety exactly but cars from the 60s to 89s are easily found. I had even spotted the rare Mahindra classics there!

I am pretty sure it is an Austin - but not sure of the model. There is one in Mumbai too - in probably a non running condition.

Edit : Its an Austin / Morris 1100 MK1.

MODS: Apologies if I am deviating and please delete if this violates rules, but could not locate a thread for Unidentified Vintage Cars in other countries

While going thru an old album I found a picture of my Uncle in the USA with a car that I have no clue which one it is. Can anyone help identify which car is the one in the picture?

I think the car posted by vsrivatsa is a 1973 Olds Cutlass. The Hurst was a high performance version; and for 1972 believe came in either black or white, with contrasting gold decals. The rear quarter windows on the Hurst were "opera" style (smaller); and there were louvres on the bonnet top.
