I am not sure whether it is a local conversion,because I remember seen a similar Safari during the 90's .also there were quite a few safaris in Trivandrum then. Also the location is Trivandrum Central railway station ,Thampanoor.
You seem to be a classic malayalam Movie buff ???

The one from the movie looked different from the Star line one to my eyes. Thought it is a local conversion job

Watching old movies is fun. Feels good to see vintage & classic vehicles and how the cities used to look back then

Here's one of the later models posted recently on facebook. Survival rate of regular wagons is poor, these must be near extinct! Seems to retain the rare STARLINE script badge on the front grille. Can anyone help source me one for my car?

Looks like the car has been / is being abandoned. Can you try to get the logo for Karlos ?

Corroborating what Behram had mentioned about the first car being delivered to Shatrughan Sinha. It seems the event was the opening of the Tardeo showroom, 2nd June 1974.

A rather rakish version was built by Kamal & Co, Jaipur, for the Director of Small Savings & State Lotteries, Government of Rajasthan.
