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

Some cars seen in the movie Nafrat (1973)

Premnath's Holden Monaro is again prominently seen here (earlier seen in 'Amir Garib' and 'Dafa 302'). Here the car shows a Delhi registration, probably an STC car before it came to Bombay? Makes sense as this movie predates the other two.

Harfan Maulaa, 1976

A Fiat 124

What I initially thought to be a Ford, but on closer inspection is a 1969-ish Nissan Gloria

This is one of 2 known Fraser Nash BMW 328s. Originally believed to be Kashmir, later owned by AFS Talyarkhan in Bombay. The car is under restoration in Bangalore, hopefully the owner will read this and add to it

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

This one was a real treat, Ustad 420 (1969) starring Sheikh Mukhtar

A 1940s Studebaker tries to make a run away

Sheikh Mukhtar lifts the rear end with his bare hands to stop them escaping

The Packard makes another appearance
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-ustad-420-25.png
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-ustad-420-32.png

For a race scene, genuine racing footage is used. I'm not sure but this maybe Sholavaram? We see familiar cars including the Gondal Jaguar XK150 with a second car, as well as the Alfa Zagato.

At one point the Dodge morphs into an earlier 1947/48 Fluid Drive model

In the last scene we see a Chevy Coupe, maybe 1955/56
