Link shared by Mr Manoj Kumar upon request by Mr AmbySrijit. Thanks to Mr AmbySrijit, for his recommendation.
Climax scene from Hindi film "Benaam"
(The eight minutes of car chase with Amitabh Bachchan versus Prem Chopra are action packed. Thanks to Mr Manoj Kumar for exactly extracting the link from the 1 hr 40 mins slot)

Bombay traffic from the early 1970's:-

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

Here's a song of the early 1970's from the film Gambler. The car seen is a Mercedes Benz fintail that appears with a clean body line.

The same Opel coupe is seen in this film as well as Majboor, again with the strange plates, maybe foreign.

Also seen is a Tempo Viking, the petrol predecessor of the Matador.

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

Benaam (1974)

In the opening scenes we see this Chevrolet Chevelle (Malibu?)
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-benaam-3.png

This Toyota Crown is also seen in Deewar - AB's own car perhaps?
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-benaam-17.png

This accessorised shiney Ambassador unfortunately gets destroyed later on, thankfully the VW Beetle is spared.
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-benaam-19.png

This 1960 Chevrolet Biscayne does see plenty of action in a chase sequence.

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

From the film Sasural 1961 starring Rajendra Kumar and B. Saroja Devi. The new Fiat Select is seen at the start and momentarily during the last few seconds. The song is quite rare.

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

Car chase scene from The Great Gambler showing cars in Europe and featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Neetu Singh. A Ford Capri,a Merc Fintail and a Ford Cortina are easily identifiable among some others.

Actually, itís an Opel Manta chased by a Fiat 124 coupe (originally red, had a bad yellow re spray). The chase car in the final sequence is a Ford Taunus
