Saw this at a film shooting locale near Vaikom. This is a baby Hindustan as it appears from the front. The rear tail lamps and the number plate lamp are from an Amby.

Can anyone identify this car positively? Probably some kind of Badal/Sipani prototye. I recently saw one in Pune. Wonder if they made more than one actually!

Its a Sail Badal 4 it was manufactured in the 80's, after the Famous Badal 3 Wheeler. The one u saw is a 84 model is there for minor engine work. It has a 175 cc Lambretta Engine, with a Dynastart Unit for starter and charging battery. there are 2 of them here one in pune. not sure of the total number produced though.
