Seen in a 60s Telugu movie. Not able to ID the car. Rims definitely not original. Also the bike with the chrome tank sides - Norton?

Does anyone know of a Tamil Black and White movie in which there is a MG Y Type and a Singer Roadster appearing in several scenes. I saw this movie in Sun TV in the early 2000s and I think there are 2 heroes and 2 heroines in it. One of the heroines who is an athlete goes to Ceylon and wins. The story was something like that

A scene from the film Solva Saal (1958). The car is not fully seen. It could be a Plymouth Savoy/ Dodge Kingsway/ Desoto Diplomat of the mid 1960's.

Mid '60s?! Or did you mean mid 50s? Although it would be even older than that- a late 40s/early 50s model.

Sorry, that's a typo. Yes, I had meant mid 1950's. The body contours visible and the windscreen shape together with the window design led me to conclude that it's a Chrysler Corpn car of the 1950's.

It was the Standard Motor Products (a.k.a Standard Motors colloquially) factory - the 2000 was one of the automobiles they made there, besides the Standard 20 commercial vehicles, as can be seen in the song.

Appu Raja's incidentally a dubbing from a Tamil movie - Apoorva Sagotharargal, with the song in question:

Seen in a late 60s Tamil movie! Could anyone identify the first two cars? The saloon with the roof rack looks French, from the wheels! And the little boxy roadster in the first and another pic. further down? Seems custom-built.

That's a pre-war Fiat.

Hope this is the right thread- not films but a few old videos I found on youtube, shot apparently by foreign tourists, of Indian cities (mainly Bombay and Calcutta) in the 1960s and 70s, showing quite a number of nice old wheels!

Not a Bollywood movie but a video of the Pope's visit to India in 1964! Courtesy youtube. Not much of car stuff but a couple of nice old Chevy buses and a Dodge/Plymouth wagon can be seen- what is that car in front of the wagon?
