The Hindi film "Pati Patni Aur Woh, a very good entertainer starring Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha, Ranjeeta and others was released in 1978. Sanjeev Kumar owns an old doddering, red, Standard Herald that can be seen quite regularly during the viewing.The car breaks down quite frequently.

A picture from this film here:

Watch out Dev Anand and Zaheera in "Choodi nahi yeh mera dil hain" (Kishore and Lata) from Gambler (1971). The song is filmed in a neat Merc fintail, with all its originality. The full car is seen a few times towards the song ending. Music is by Sachin Dev Burman.

Perhaps the hero's choice - am not sure as to whether that position betters or worsens the rear view job done by the RVM ?

Some stills from an interesting car chase with various cars involved, from the movie "Agent Vinod" (1977, not the recent one)

The Herald is a saloon with the roof modified, to look like an estate.

The Sunbeam Alpine plays the hero's car and seems rigged up like one of the typical 'spy' cars to fly over an obstacle, squirt water and smoke from it's rear etc....not to mention disappearing foglamps!

Not sure if those are the original numbers of the cars though!

The Sunbeam Alpine registered MRZ 6585 also makes an appearance in the 1978 Sachin Ranjeeta starrer Ankhiyon ke Jharokon se, albeit in red.

That's interesting! Looks like they didn't have much of a job resurrecting this car for it's next shoot!

Some stills of a Heckflosse (fintail) Mercecedes 220(?) from a 1970 movie "Kab? Kyon? Kahan?"
Also seen are an early 60s Chevy Nova and a mk1 Standard Herald (background car only.)

I remember having watched this movie years ago! Glad to have found it again, on youtube!
Actually many of the taxis are Fiat 1100D, including the lead actor Amol Palekar "Hero"'s ride!
Though a few Presidents and even early Padminis (which is what I suspect the red and black Fiat is) can also be seen, besides a few other cars as well:

Stanher, nostalgic to see the Fiats in abundance !

even an average Amol Palekar movie is miles ahead of current senseless ones !

His evergreen hits are such a joy to watch on a Sunday !

sample this !
