Bagula Bhagat (1979)

A strange looking car, maybe an old Toyota?

What must be a Nissan or other Japanese car?

The first car is in fact a Toyota. It's a 1955-1957 Toyopet Crown, the 1958 model got a redesigned front end that did not have the mustache like grille of the first 3 model year cars. (1955 Model pictured).

This gentleman belonged to perhaps the wealthiest family in Meerut and had many businesses in Meerut , Delhi and Bombay. This car was in Meerut and I have seen it taken care of along with many fine cars the family owned. My brother was in the Auto insurance business and showed me the papers showing ownership of the car - Miss Nawab Begum. The car is a 1947 model and may have belonged to some princely state or wealthy owner prior to ownership of Miss Nimmi . This story throws some light on the background of this magnificent car. In Meerut, next to our home was a auto workshop that took care of this family's cars. I was about 14 years old, and very interested in cars. I saw this Caddy at close quarters - it was of course LHD , .a Flathead V8 , two speed automatic, and a working AM radio.

In the film Pehli Jhalak we see an identical car, including details like the twin shikaar lights, AA badge on the side of the grille, and marker poles on both fenders. It has to be the same car, and now we know the registration was BMZ. I'm told the car was sold to Delhi in the 70s, current fate unknown. It was also seen in Humdard

A shot of actress Nimmi's Cadillac on the sets of the film 'Mehmaan' (1953). Still cannot find a copy of the film.

Sabak (1973)

A pair of Americans getting bashed up, so typical of movies of the 70s and 80s. A 1949 Chevrolet Styline Deluxe and a 1947/48 Plymouth. The HIM series seem to be dummies.

This Type 34 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is seen in two of Sanjeev Kumar's movies, so I assume it is his own car.

Besides Paras, seen here in Door Nahin Manzil (1973)
