Great restored car! The outcome has come out to be very good. It would be very nice of you if you can start a thread on her.

Folks
A question. Assuming Standard 2000 had clicked, would STAMPRO have survived to this day with the market having opened up in 1991 putting an end to the Licence Raj system.
IMO i think it is yes. If you compare the trio (HM,STAMPRO and PAL), STAMPRO had variety in their portfolio unlike the other two. May be they would have roped in a foreign partner. Your say on this.
Gutted to see the company no longer in existence.

My Dad owned this car for 4 years during the early 2000s in Hyderabad. We enjoyed the car and it was a sort of head turner on the roads. Will pen down some memories of this beautiful car sometime.

I just across this rare picture of Rover SD1 (UK Police car variant) being checked out by then Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi at the 1986 Auto Show in New Delhi. I think this was around the time it's Indian variant Standard 2000 was launched. Photo copyright rests with respective owner.

What blasphemy . Standard actually planned to dieselize the 2000. Thank God this jugaad never saw the light of day (although there were plenty of conversions by owners).

While browsing through some old issues of Auto India magazine (from the 90s) I came across this ad for the same car.
