IRAN'S ARROW (Paykan Documentary UK Premiere)

Recommended Posts

The surprising thing is how modern the Hunter was when it was first licensed out to Paykan. After Billy Roots fucked up his VW Beetle decision it shows a surprising amount of foresight.

I totally agree! I think it is beautifully proportioned, straight like an Arrow. :) It was the PERFECT car for Iran. Almost feels like it was designed for Iran.

The Paykan in the Coventry Transport Museum is from Peugeot. They got one in the early 1980s to help with development work - perhaps they were doing engineering consultancy on the face-lifted model that came out in the mid 80s.

 

At the time Peugeot Talbot UK were still exporting lots of parts, it was more or less the only profitable activity the company undertook in 81-82.

Thanks for the info. The facelifted Paykan was actually done in the UK perhaps one of the last projects under Chrysler/Rootes. It was introduced to Iran in 1979.

I went to the Retro Rides show back in the day when it was still at Santa Pod - I'd say 2004 or 2005 - and someone brought a white Paykan. Could have been that one perhaps. It wasn't UK regd at the time, but I remember someone telling me it had come over to be used for some testing on its brake system which had been completed years before then it had been parked up somewhere (can't remember where).

Very interesting, I think I know about that car, but don’t know who owns it and where it is now.

I'm attempting to get to see this tomorrow BUT the "adventure" website is a triumph (not Triumph) of visuals over information. The Mill Hill School site is VAST (been there before)  so the "how to get there" does not include the information "how to get there". No info on trains. underground, parking, No map of the site ! Where do I get tickets for cash on the day as there's none available via interwebs?

      I have mentioned this to a few shiters over the year and there seems to be some interest so I thought I would make it happen. It also gets the date into the AS Calendar before anything else gets organised for the same weekend.
      The location is half way between Lemans and Tours in Sarthe, Pays de Loire, France, approx 300 miles and 5 hours from Calais, or 120 miles and 2.5 hours from Caen. The date of 3-5 July is the Lemans Classic weekend, where there are great cars on track (where else will you see pre-war Bentleys power sliding and GT40s with glowing brake discs at night) and the car park is probably the biggest and best classic car show in Europe. The AS site is about 25 mins drive from the circuit, with easy access.
      The format is basically whatever you want it to be. The AS base will be at my place in France that a few shiters have visited. I am afraid the bedrooms are already booked, but there is 6 acres of level camping ground,  We will be travelling down from West Sussex via the tunnel and a combination of peage and back roads in a convoy of classics. You are welcome to join the convoy at any point or meet at the venue. We will travel down probably Thursday 2nd and most will return Monday 6th, but some will stay on for a week or two and you are welcome to stay on if you wish. The nearest bar is about 1km away, but 3km away is the famous "Hotel de France" in La Chatre sur le Loir (google it). You do not have to attend the Lemans Classic, if you would rather sit and drink beer (hopefully in the sun) that is fine.
      It will be up to the individuals to organise ferry/tunnel etc and getting there, I can provide camping ground, bogs, showers and a fridge for the beer. No commitment required especially at this stage, If you fancy a foreign trip with your chod, put your name down on the list. Nearer the time those still interested will get further details and the hidden location by PM. If anyone would prefer a B&B obviously they are in high demand around the classic, but I have a few contacts and could possibly find a room or two, but they would need to be booked fairly soon. No booking for camping is required.
      To give you an idea, whilst nothing is yet confirmed, the convoy down is likely to include a Gordon Keeble, a Rolls Royce 20/25, a Westfield, a Mk2 Jag and a Fiesta 1100. It will not be a fast convoy......
      Oooh La La, I'll help destroy the French wine lake
