Has anyone tried importing a ford gpw through this scheme? Do I need IEC for this? What will be the duty and registration charges for this kind of vehicle?

whats the point of opening up the channel of import if the import duty is sill 200% plus !
it makes no sense to import these vehicles to India.

can a US citizen import the vehicle even after several years?

Posted this in the Beyond borders thread, but posting here as well, with the hope if this can somehow be forwarded to our Government too.

Not directly related to car IMPORTS but an interesting Mumbai High Court matter concerning FORD CARS in 1937
https://indiankanoon.org/doc/1998745/

EXCERPTS:
1. The appellants are the Ford Motor Company of India, Limited. They import Ford motor vehicles into India from Canada, and the questions raised by this appeal relate to the amount of customs duty payable upon 256 Ford motor cars consigned to the appellants which arrived in Bombay by the SS. Algic on, or about January, 1929.

4. The 256 Ford motor cars [Model A Vehicles] which arrived by the SS, Algic in January, 1929, were assessed to customs duty by the Collector of Customs upon the view that Clause (a) of Section 30 applied to the case, and that the price charged by the appellants to the distributors, excluding therefrom the allowance of Rs. 13-8-0, was such a wholesale cash price as is specified therein.

Does anybody know how much the import tax is on pre 1950s cars? I know it is 200% on new cars
