Finally we have a quality restoration workshop exporting quite a few things to overseas buyers and as you guys rightly pointed out it all looks imported because we are yet not confident of Indian quality that we ourselves are making in India.

We Indians can do it - are doing it already - its just that are fellow countrymen need to recognise that we have already made that huge leap forward!

Cheers!

We make quality things which is well known worldwide.
BUT some of our manufacturers are only concentrating on exporting, not for sale in India.
And most of them do not have website and not well published, one have to give a try by visiting them.

About the price, I give one example, those Jaguar wheel spinners are priced 15,000/- + Tax for each piece, you can buy set of 4 for that price from UK, even though its Made in India.

cheers

I bought a new radiator for my Cherokee from UK since mine is RHD and not available anywhere else. It turned out to be made by Banco Products, India. But, The quality is not as good as the original which came on the car although said to be OE equivalent by the British supplier.
Though I agree we in India do make Very good quality products. Only problem is the quality manufacturers are less in numbers compared to the just pass off manufacturers. We do need to become more consistent with Quality. TQM needs to be given much more importance, and its a culture that takes time and effort!!

How was the quality of the glass and the top shading? How do they normally go about this making, do they have a template or do it with a makeshift farma from the car? What the guarantee on fitting? Sorry for all these questions Sirji.

I entirely agree. The qualility of the stuff displayed at the autojumble by Engineers Corporation was simply outstanding. The quality of the work especially on the dash panels, SS petrol tank was world class. My personal congratulations to Mr.Dhawan for the wonderful work of art.

So I really wonder what this really is, or was? Could she have been a coach-built National/Comet with all vestiges of a hearse/ambulance carefully removed? The said glasshouse, C and D pillars and rear door could suggest so.

I remember having a doubt about those side hinges on the tailgate & enquired with Gogi bhai if they were indeed correct. Anyway, here's a Nomad in Delhi (without the trims though):

Iraghava.

Sorry to point out but the car pictured is not a 57 Chevy Nomad.

The Nomad was the top of the line model with a vey low production or spme 6,500 units.

Moreover the Nomad was a two door wagon and came only with teh Bel Air Trim Package either with the base six or the V8. The V8 cars had a V beneath the Chevy logo on the tailgate.

The Delhi Car in your pictures is either a 210 or 150 Wagon.

Below are pictures of a 1957 Chevy Nomad.

Folks, forget all else, just look at the forward raked thick B-pillar of the Nomad, visible from most angles. That sets her apart with distinction from the lesser endowed siblings!

Hi Indrojit. You had mentioned earlier that WBB 5909 was a Studebaker your grandfather bought from Bihar - which is which?
