Anyone know the present whereabouts of this KLU-112??
Is it the same MGA that appeared in the Prathap Pothen, Zarina Wahab starrer "Chamaram", a 1980 Malayalam movie? I had heard somebody remarking that the car owner was Prathap Pothen but I am not sure if it really was his.

I think it is the same one ,KLU-112.Prathap pothen never owned.It was first owned by a Royal family settled in Bangalore ,then a former Chief minister of kerala's son(hence the Quilon registration),later a dealer-restorer in Trivandrum, then an advocate in Cochin, and then reportedly went to North or western India.

A Japanese marque probably a TOYOTA from an 80's Malayalam movie.
American and Japanese cars seemed to be the flavour of the south indian movies those days.

Had seen this last year but was really not impressed by it. Was more impressed by the Lambretta that was besides this one.

Thanks Foby

Going by some of the features on that, I would like to believe, that its a latter day offering from a start-up auto assembler of past called "Trishul"

see this pic - https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attac...-1-trishul.jpg

May be I am wrong but I think you can all it whatever you want as it is obviously an conglameration of parts from many makes
