Indrojitsircar the 70's black mach 1 is the same car as the bhopal one it was sold there.
The blue mustang with the scoop is not atall original and is the same cars that is now black with orange.
The blue fastback belongs to an uncle of mine and he also owns the yellow camero and not a mustang as you have mentioned(picture posted by me before). He also owns a 1965/6 Mustang black in colour.

Hi Abhishek,

Thankx for those clarifications. The yellow camero wasn't that clear so it looked like a 70's Mustang. Could you post a pic of your uncles mustang here please.

I have to take his permission as he is a private person and likes keeping his cars away from public glare.

Found a picture posted by Manish of the 60's convertible (bluffmaster fame) now with its owner in Chennai.

Are the 80's mustangs considered as classics ?

The question is: By whom?
The 1964 to 1973 Mustangs are classics.
But here at home, when our friends rave about Standard Heralds and Ambassadors and Fiat 1100s and Millecentos as being classics, anything goes! :-)

This is by me because this thread as it says is "classic" mustangs and a 80's car would feature anywhere then.

Very well said sir about them.

These cars are classics in the international market too. So What exactly is wrong in calling them classics here in India?

The following is just for information. If it offends some dear friend's feelings, I apologize unconditionally and in advance.

A classic car is a fine large luxury car, produced between World War Two and 1985.
It should have been an upper class car in the country where originally produced -- not a common economy car, when new.

We're talking about cars which commanded prices well above the middle-class, average new car prices, when new.

Nowadays many cars in the 1.6 litre to 2.0 litre engine capacity
have power brakes, hydraulic clutch, power windows.
But if your car had these things in 1966, when they were luxury accessories, it would be a Classic.
(e.g. pneumatic power windows)
Cars which had real leather upholstery when common cars had rexine.
Cars which had wood-trimming, when common cars had plain painted metal.
  • The 1959-1968 six-cylinder Fiat 1800 and 2100 are classics. Fiat 1100s are not.
  • The six-cylinder Triumph Vitesse and Triumph 2000 are classics. The 948 cc Herald is not.
  • Most Jaguar/Daimler/Bentley/Rolls-Royce saloons are classics, an Ambassador/Landmaster is not.
Just my opinion
Ram

By defintion ANY car between the age of 20 and 45 years IS a Classic Car.

If one was to restrict this definition only to expensive old cars then it be a shame.

Going by your definition Ram then old cars like Austin 7;s etc would never classify as Antique Cars and others like say the MGB or TR serise would never classify as Classic Cars too
