What's with the post-1950 imports these days?

First a '63 Lincoln Continental

Could be a transfer of residence case, following the appropriate import rules.

To the best of my knowledge, LHD cars are not allowed on TR.

Tweety says the E-Type belongs to the head of a prominent business house with automotive interests. Car makers have certain concessions when it comes to imports for RnD, so I assume the car came via that route.

Out of curiosity- do these 'values' include the total value on landing, inc. Customs assessment, or just the cost of purchase of the car in INR?

This is the value of the customs assessment of the cost of car plus all costs upon landing , on which the customs duties would be levied !

Here's another addition to the list. Although it says 'Incomplete car - without body parts, seats, windscreen.'

Edit: Mods please delete this post. I was on a different page and thought it was the last post on this thread. Apologies.

These prices are CIF Prices (Cost, Insurance & Freight). The custom duty is calculated based on that. So if the shipping of a part / stuff is high (in case when we order items in single qty air shipment). We end up paying duty on shipping as well.

Does this mean if I find say a 1949 Chevy pick truck in the USA I can import it without any hassle? Or a old defender from UK?

Also does a US citizen living in India have any advantage for this exercise? Just curious.
