Yup, there is one in Lalaji's collection, I assume it is the same.

Also a lovely 58-61 yellow Beetle is seen driven away by bodyguard 'Zabisco' and Jenny (Parveen Babi) outside Mount Mary at Bandra. The Chrysler Imperial (?) was a long wheel base, DLD 2790. I think it is currently in a Delhi collection. Good times!
Thanks Karl for the information. The registration numbers you have recorded match perfectly with the ones somewhere deep in my memory but not emerging.
Just forgot to mention about the lovely Beetle shown outside the Bandra church.
Its soothing to know that the Chrysler is still surviving.
Apart from this, I also saw Badmash Company while flying a few days ago.It features a sea green (no two tone but a single colour) two door Herald of the early 1960's being driven many a time by Shahid Kapoor till he becomes a rich man.
Guess Stanher may have seen the movie.

The Herald in the movie is MHJ 5301. It shortly appears in 'once upon a time in Mumbai' also.

Hi everyone, I am Srinand and I am new to team-bhp and this is my first post. I was watching Malgudi days, a tv series from the late eighties and found a car which was on the screen for a few brief moments, i don't know which car it is and assumed it was a rolls royce from the brief view of a hood ornament which kind of looks like the spirit of ecstacy, please find attached the screenshots of same. Wait to hear from the experts about which car it is.

regards,

Srinand.

Here's some from a new Hindi movie. Golmal Returns (Part3?)

Set it Goa and it had about 2-3 vintage cars shown quite a bit.

Unfortunately it was portrayed in a silly way..supposed to be a cartoon car used by a clown (Jhony Lever) . Sorry I do not recognize the cars.

Was a pink colored W123 as well but was in good shape. I must warn you the movie is extremely silly.

'happened to watch this late 70s Telugu movie last night, and found quite a number of classics in it, particularly delighted by the red chop-top mk1 Herald that is driven by the 'hero' throughout the movie!
Anyone from Madras (where this movie was shot incidentally) who knows/knew this car?? 'wonder if it survives.
Appears complete but for the parking lights, and quite decent considering that the car would've already been 15 years old at the time.

Rather surprising that this Herald was the only one seen in the entire movie. I assumed they were still common in Madras then. 'did spot (briefly) a Companion in an unusual colour, and a Black Super 10 (not photo'd) as well though.

And also spotted briefly is a Rover P5(?)- amol, for you!

And any idea what the blue car is? Definitely looks 60s American but not sure what make exactly it is. The closest I could come up with is Buick Skylark (comparing with pics. on google soon as I made the guess)
But then, this car doesnt have the side-trims unlike the Skylark. So again, not sure.

And a rather well-kept (for a taxi!- unless it really isnt one) Fiat Millecento taxi with an unusual bonnet badge.
Here is another one in B'bay with what looks like a similar badge:

Very Interesting and extremely rare to see a Rover P5 in any movie hindi tamil or otherwise? Was it a part of the plot or just a passer by, cant really read the registration no? maybe she survives! appears to have no quarter glasses which indicates she could be a Mark 1, however the trims are that of a Mark3 1965-67.

Thanks for the pic though, can you read the registration off your tv screen?

Oh I forgot the Hero's hairstyle reminds me of someone also with a red herald no who could that be

I knew you'd like it.

It certainly would've been just caught passing by as it appears only in that scene and nowhere else in the movie.

I can make out the digits as 2876; now karl happened to see these pics. today and told me that a friend of his in B'bay owns a similar White Rover that was also from Madras, and was originally MSQ 2876 (now with a MH 01 regn. though)
So it could be the same car.

Incidentally, its said to have been formerly owned by a British MD of Ashok Leyland at Madras.

I had a hunch this was his car, its definately a Mark III then, Do you have any recent pics of the car, he did get it for the 2006 VCCCI rally but never participated. Needs to go on the Rover thread.

I've never seen the car, so no idea and no pics. I believe it is now blue with silver top.

Some more pics. from another late 70s movie, this one being a Tamil one.

This was a 'low-budget' movie, hence B&W although there were colour movies well before that time.

2 Vespa 150s, the first one seems to be a '64-65 model (with the 'elevated' round speedo fitted in the original piaggio meter socket)

An early Standard 20 Van, and what appears to be a WW2 Chevrolet mini-bus.

'cant identify the moped and the other mini-bus.

PS: Sorry, 'wish the pic. clarity could have been better!

The moped is the first generation Luna moped (1974 onwards) from Kinetic Engineering. This one did not have shock ups for the rear wheels and is the pre-TFR Plus model.
The mini bus is a Ford. These were also available as truck chassis in our country.
The other mini bus could be a Commer made by the Rootes Group that was later in the 1970's taken over by Chrysler.

A poster from the movie Madam Fashion 1936. Note the nice sports car, maybe an Adler?
Taken, probably from Sunday Midday

Cheers harit
