A few nice cars seen in the movie "CHALTE CHALTE" (1976), including this 1954 LHD Dodge- similar to KPS' car - in this song from the same movie:

A few cars in the 70s Dev Anand starrer -AMIR GARIB. Any idea what the white sedan with the roundish tail-lamps, behind the fence, is?

And some more pics. from yet another 70s Dev Anand starrer- JAANEMAN- the best-known car in this movie would've been the Fiat taxi driven by Dev Anand, which keeps switching back and forth between a Premier President and a Fiat 1100D!
Though of course plenty of other wheels to be seen in said movie as well!

One is an original "taxi quota" car as seen from the black interior paint while the other is a light green private car converted to taxi or repainted for the movie shoot.

Regards,

Apologies for the back to back posts.

Not from a movie, but Bollywood nevertheless. This is the cover of a R. D. Burman LP. Any information about this Triumph? Did he own it? Where is it now?


Regards,

HA HA! Actually while you guys were busy recueing Standards and Fiats from the scrapers in Chor Bazar, I was occupied with liberating old LPs and turntables from the greedy traders there. All BHPians are welcome to my place for a musical session on vinyl.

The car is a Fiat Spyder, I cannot read the registration number but these were very popular in movies at the time, and a couple of the well known ones do survive.

Thanks Karl, I suspected that more so after looking at the photos of the one that attended the Lonavala meet of FCCCI Mumbai/Pune.

Happy Motoring,

From the movie "KALA PAANI" One of those few Bollywood movies where a Herald was used in a chase scene. But meets a sad end! :(

Also note the steering lock on the Fiat! Was this available in India back then or could it have been imported? Another option was leaving your dog inside your car to deter car thieves!
