In the 1968 comedy movie  The Party, Peter Sellers plays Hrundi Bakshi, an Indian actor who is accidentally invited to an exclusive Hollywood party instead of being fired. Bakshi drives a blue three-wheeler made by a British manufacturer called the Morgan Motor Company.

The car in question, featured in this scene of the film, is a vintage Morgan Sports Model, manufactured between 1932 and 1939. Like the others in its series, the V-Twin three-wheeler used an air-cooled or liquid-cooled version of a motorcycle engine, and was not produced again after World War II. As is the case with all British cars, it's right-hand drive.

Due to the car's limited production and value as a collectible, it would probably be very difficult to find one for sale today. However, the Morgan Motor Company launched their new three-wheeler at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011. This model uses an S&S motorcycle engine and costs around £30,000 new.

Hello beachbilly,
The car you want to know about is an older type Morgan with a double V shaped engine upfront it is actually a converted motorcycle as you only needed a motorcycle licence for it and the chrome you see is all on the front on the engine and as it is a vehicle from just beyond WW2 I think it would be hard to find one in drivable condition

That's it! You're better at searching than I am, obviously. Thanks. A Morgan ... I once lusted after owning a Morgan roadster, but had never seen a three-wheeler. Interesting. thank you ...
