With everyone running around to restore their cars into original form, fake badges have started to arrive in the market which lack finish and are very fragile. In the following picture you can see the original mark 4 badge and the one currently available in the market which costs around Rs.50/-.

I am looking for a steering wheel of the Mark 4 along with horn ring and a parts dealer in Trivandrum has agreed to get it for me. What would be the fair price for the same ? Experts please comment.

Default An useful description of ""NOS""

New Old Stock. This term is probably most hotly debated subject in the Vintage world. this term refers to an original part or accessory that has never been used. NOS parts generally come from old dealer stockpiles, and usually fetch a premium at online sitesAs the name implies, there are 3 criteria which must be met for a part to be considered NOS
New - the part or accessory has not been used. Once an NOS part has been put into use, it should be referred to as being NOS in the past tense, ie "I installed NOS headlights on my car." It is considered unethical to put such a part into service, then remove it after a time and offer it for sale as NOS again.
  • Old - of equivalent vintage as the car it would be used on. Some parts are still in production and commonly available, such as ignition components. These would not be referred to as NOS.
  • Stock - Strictly speaking, an NOS part is an OEM (original equipment manufacture) part, meaning a part or accessory that would have been available when the car was new. The contention arises from whether to consider vintage, non-OEM parts and accessories to be NOS. Strictly speaking, they do not meet the three criteria of NOS - specifically failing the "Stock" criteria. For example, should a new, unused, floor mat set sold by an aftermarket company in 1960 be considered "NOS?" No, because it is not an original part.
The NOS claim is often misused because there's usually money involved. When presented with parts that are touted as NOS, ask for proof! Here's some helpful hints for surviving the NOS game:
  • Many NOS parts will still be in their original wrapper or box, but not always.
  • Look for visual cues as to a part's age. Familiarize yourself with what the parts you need are supposed to look like.
The presence of cosmoline, a sticky, oily substance, on parts is not a guarantee of authenticity or age - cosmoline is still commonly used to coat machined parts to prevent corrosion during storage, and is easily obtainable.
  • Look for signs of "use wear" on the part. Some NOS parts may have what is called "shelf wear," which is light scratching and scuffing from being handled, and that is acceptable.
  • Look closely at the fastening points, and mounting areas - is there evidence of use? When nuts and bolts are fastened, the leave a circular impression. Look for pitting in chrome, and cracks in bakelite parts, such as knobs.
  • Look for bead-blasted and spray-painted surfaces. No parts would have come from the factory with a bead-blasted finish, which is evidenced by a very fine, but roughened texture.
  • Familiarize yourself with the finishes on parts that you need. It's very common to repaint parts and try to pass them off as NOS.
  • Keep in mind that there are a lot of high-quality reproductions out there. Some unscrupulous sellers have no qualms about roughing up a reproduction item and passing it off as "NOS with shelf wear." Get copies of the various mail-order catalogs to see if the part is available via mail order. A lot of the "NOS" stuff being sold online and on eBay is literally pulled straight out of the catalogs and sold for several times the catalog price.
  • NOS doesn't always mean pristine condition. There are many cases where you would be better off restoring an original part, than trying to salvage an NOS piece that is in sorry shape.
  • Some parts, like rubber items, do not age well. An NOS part, while truly original and unused, might be functionally worthless.

Dear Ajay, many thanks for the information. Just one question. If I make an exact copy of tail lights body (including the Fiat Part number and all other hardware), which is better or equivalent to original, what would that be called. Can it be termed as genuine part??

Manishji, it can be called a "" high-quality reproduction'' .
On another note it is technically illegal to produce such a replica with fiat part number etc although it is being done by several people in INDIA and some other parts of the world

Tks for the note. It is illegal if we do a resale or business out of it. But for one off personal use will there be any problem.

I am not sure of the legality of that although ethically there is no problem in doing that
