Paykan
1967-2005

Manufactured by the Iran Khodro company, (previously Iran National) the Paykan originated as the Hillman Hunter. In fact Paykan in Persian translates as Arrow. The Paykan became the most popular passenger vehicle in Iran. Most automobiles get updated and redesigned at least once in a decade. That would not be the case with the Paykan. It did not help that the Paykan lacked A/C and ABS. Gas mileage was not impressive either. What the Paykan offered from the beginning was simplicity and ruggedness for generations of Iranians. Fun Facts: The song that Iranians sing for birthdays (Tavalodet Mobarak) was in fact created for the fourth anniversary of the Paykan. Recently, a documentary film on the Paykan ("Iran's Arrow: The Rise and Fall of Paykan")was shown all over the United States.

Another gold piece #hillmanhunter

Something different today - a movie recommendation! This week the #Docunight project will screen “Iran’s Arrow: The Rise and Fall of Paykan” made by @paykanhunter with filmmaker Sohrab Daryabandari. When the Coventry engineers at the #RootesGroup were designing the “Arrow” cars, the Hillman Hunter, Humber Sceptre, Singer Vogue (the last cars to wear the Humber and Singer badges), and Sunbeam Arrow, they could not have known that the car they produced, designed on a shoestring budget, would still be in production in Tehran almost 50 years later; but that’s what happened. The Arrow cars were imported to the U.S. as Sunbeams from 1967-1970, but aside from the flashy Alpine fastback, the “baby barracuda,” few were sold here. It was different in Iran though, where the car was produced under license by Iran Khodro from Rootes and later from Peugeot after it bought Chrysler Europe (Rootes had been owned by Chrysler since 1967) as the Paykan. The sedan and wagon (but not the coupe) Arrows were joined by a pickup variant similar to one sold in South Africa as the Dodge Husky. Although there had been previous attempts to license-build cars in Iran, the Paykan was the first truly successful one. Reliable, cheap, and simple, the Paykan became a common sight there, like the Fiat 500 in Italy. The Paykan, so easily identifiable and in production so long (’67-’05 for the sedan, 2015 for the pickup), became a part of the fabric of life in Iran and that’s really what this film is about - people telling stories about a car they love. Among those interviewed in the film are a former mechanics, owners, enthusiasts, cultural historians, even Iran Khodro’s ex-CEO. Although I usually present the history of a car here, this film presents the history the car, how and why it was built the way it was, and the lives it has impacted. Screenings are limited, and most take place on Oct. 4 at various universities, to find out more visit bit.ly/2yF78Yy - I haven’t seen the film yet, but I’m looking forward to it!
