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

From the film CID (1956) starring Dev Anand, Waheeda Rehman, Johnny Walker, Shakila and others. In this song we see Johnny Walker and Shakila lipsyncing to voice overs by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Music is by O.P. Nayyar.

We see a only a few cars during the duration of the video. However, fleetingly for a few seconds after 2.49 mins many cars are seen trailing the horse carriage. The assortment of taxis is from the era prior to the Fiatisation of Bombay's taxi trade.



Please click the YouTube link to view video.

It looks more like 1970 Ford Falcon. The 1966 Ford Falcon had indicators in Bumpers

A more clear version of the film Nastik showing the 67 Chevrolet Impala more clearly. We saw this same car in the movies 'Jeevan Mrityu', 'Blackmail', 'Baazi', and 'Pocket Maar'

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

I was watching the 1994 Hindi movie 'Main Khiladi Tu Anari' and I came across this blue '69 Dodge Charger in one of the fight scenes. So cool to see that one of these ever came to India, altho I hope it is residing someplace in good condition.
