    Default First Pakistani Car (The Red Car )

    This is the first car ever made and registered in Pakistan. It was designed and built by Hamid Omar in 1967.

    The chassis was built from angle iron left over from transmission tower construction.

    Metal body was all hand built.

    It had a 200cc rope start pump engine.

    The cruising speed was 40 mph.

    Lambrettra scooter tyres.

    Was in regular daily use for over 10 years.

    Was registered with great difficulty in Lahore in 1968.

    There is a story behind this, told by Hamid Omar:

    When I went to get this car registered, they wanted the Bill of Lading, the import documentations like the B/L (bill of lading), country, manufacturer. Since the car was made here, none of these papers were there, and they said that it is no car can be registered without these documents. There was no precedent - so at that time after lots of trips to various govt. offices, Lahore’s DIG Traffic finally agreed to inspect the car. He took a test drive around the block, and then gave the order to have it registered.

    I used the car for two years in Lahore and then three years in Karachi. Then Ahmad Omar used it for 3 years, then Taimur Mumtaz used it for a further two years.

    Does this car still exist anymore or did it end up lost? Should be in a museum of Pakistan history, yet people dont seem to care about these things.

    WOW
    If a Genuine Pakistani car was made in 1965 by an auto lover, why it can not be done now by an industrialist or Govt. This car looks still better than ALIF and BAY.
