The same MG makes an appearance in 'Parvarish' - I assume a TC, and not an earlier car?

I'm unsure about this fintail - a Ford maybe?

Re: Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars

Sheikh Mukhtar starrer 'Spy in Goa'

One of the filmy Packards makes an appearance

I cannot identify this car, but note it is a taxi, written in a yellow patch on the door, as was the norm in Goa at the time.

The taxi somehow looks very Lenin-sky to me. A ca 1962 Volga GAZ-21 is attached.....though not quite the same.

Re: Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars

While the movie Munimji has been posted before, here is some deeper discussion.

I feel there are atleast 3 MG TCs used in the movie

Car 1
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-munimji-13.png

Car 2
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-munimji-15.png

and Car 3
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-munimji-1.png

On closer inspection car 3 matches Madan Mohan's personal car posted earlier, and he has made an appearance in the movie as well. Note he is wearing the same outfit as in the movie here, probably shot on set. Now that we know the number was BMX 8337 I hope it doesn't get magically recreated
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-madan-mohan-mg.jpg

Two Chevy Styline Deluxes are seen - with and without the shikaar light mounted high up (which was Dev Anand's personal car seen in Taxi Driver and Nau Do Gyarah).

A Dodge woodie bus seen in the back.
