Lovely, lovely, lovely, with the complete trim it looks amazing. Congratulations on a 10/10 restoration job. Simply the best I've seen so far.

Chevy looking great in natural surrounding (Lumbini Park).
Thanks for sharing your Team management skills, very impressive.
I wish TVS open up new avenues of Classic Car Restoration business.

BTW DKG, did you see any other Chevy in 1990's in Banjara Hills my uncle used to have one, it is yellow golden colour with black mudguard APX.. I will try to find its pic.

Cheers!

Deepak,

The Car looks great!

Pity its heading over to Chennai next week. I really wish it would have been there until 27th/28th Aug 2010.

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Nice car. This would be a 34 or 35 Chevy. It would be a six cylinder. Does your uncle still have this car? A friend of mine has a similar Chevy but don't remember the number

It was a pleasure. But you know if it were my car I wouldn't have been as much on tenterhooks making sure no one fiddled too much with it.

I wonder why in India people love to touch things , they just have to touch everything. I remember when they reopened the Salar Jung Museum painting section done up to International standards I was horrified to see visitors touching the paintings !! What works abroad simply cannot be applied here.

Next time we need to cordon the cars off so that visitors can view as they pass by. I know it sounds rude but people simply do not understand that when 500 people feel the canvas top as they pass by it goes from beige to black in no time !!

My Packards are old and weathered and I don't mind it as much when people come close, but with this car it was too stressful for me making sure everyone enjoyed her from a distance

Pity is I couldn't do my usual walkaround meeting up fellow owners and chatting with them and admiring their beauties. I missed the opportunity to admire all those awesome bikes that turn up for this event

No my uncle sold this beautiful Chevy, probably around 1992, he passed away in May 1994. May be your friend have the same car, curious to know or meet the present owner. Another Humber Hawk used to be in Punjagutta, primary school headmaster now found with Mr. Siraj @Jublee Hills, I think you know him.

I had requested a friend who is a professional photographer to document MDR 200 pictorially and he kindly agreed to take pictures today. While he set things up I kept myself busy taking some pictures of my own.

I am amazed how this car has become such an eyefull, and from every angle. My gaze seems to get arrested as it passes over every part of the car. There is so much detail and beauty in this simple design.

These cars represents a spectacular era in human history when design had so much character, so much of the individual, such a powerful magnetic aura.

Hope you guys enjoy this car in pictures as much as I do everytime I look at it.

Hi Deepak,

Even in your efforts the car looks great with professional lighting

Will we get to see the results of the pro-shoot?

Getting ready for the next International-concours-d-elegance are you ?[]

You should bend the ears of the concerned to do so[/SIZE][/FONT]

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

That is a very nice looking car and pretty complete and original by the looks of it.

It appears to be a 38 or 39 Master Deluxe.

Do post some pics of the engine bay and also some history on it from the previous owner would be great.

DKG, I love it. After it comes to Chennai is there a chance that it would be exhibited somewhere by TVS? I know it should be hard for you to let go of this beauty after outting si much effort into it.
On a lighter note, while at Lumbini park, did anyone ask you "kitna deta hai?"
