From the Bengali Satyajit Ray film Seemabaddha (1971) starring Barun Chanda, Sharmila Tagore , Harindranath Chattopadyhaya and others. The Mark II's period and aftermarket wheelcaps make it look special.

A 1957-59 model Fiat Spider from the 1968 Hindi movie Bambai Raat Ki Bahon Mein that appears in several scenes after the first half. Some other classics also appear in the movie.

It probably is. This car appears in the car chase in the very end of the movie. The movie is available in youtube.

The Herald in Ram Aur Shyam isn't really a convertible though, just a saloon with the roof taken off.

A Premier Padmini station wagon (coach-built no doubt) fitted with what I was told were popular accessory indicators in the 80s (also seen on the Fiat Super select), as were the window frame trims?

A superb picture shared on the fantastic instagram page wildcatofbombay, showing actress Shahzadi with her new car - probably a Riley Monaco? Old Bombay registration T 884.

Happened to randomly watch this 1971 Telugu movie "PATTUKUNTE LAKSHA" on youtube in which I spotted this LHD Austin A40 Somerset convertible for a major part of the movie- coincidentally, the same car was hired as a 'baraat car' for my late parents' wedding on 2nd June, 1969 in Madras (pic. from my parents' wedding album!)
'wonder if this car survives now, though VAHAN couldn't throw up any details so maybe doubtful!
