Very correct Abhi. Its the Austin 3 litre of 1970. This is one of the rare big cars made by Austin Motors, another being the Austin Princess.Austin made people's cars. Sadly, Austin Motors under British Leyland's (then Govt owned) ownership succumbed to the then UK market forces and was wound up. Their Austin Metro of 1975 was a huge success.

Actually the hard top metal roofs came only in the 1930's commonly.even the Austin 7 got a hard metal top in a variant in the 1930's.earlier till the early 1930's almost all cars had canvas tops that could be folded to make the car a convertible.
