  1. Well done, nice to see a restoration done to the likes of reality shows often seen on Discovery & History channels.

  2. Good job guys, love to see you more Restoworks. It's very hard to restore such classic beauties. Just loved the chrome touch on front Fascia. But 1thing I didn't understood that have you exported the car to USA/ just attended the expo? Coz last few secs of video shows California registered plate at rear.

  3. Nice restoration work
    However the last picture used is from unsplash right?? I have also used this pic in my website.

  4. That's a remarkable restoration job! Very impressive work. I'm surprised to see an American 50's car in right hand drive. Did that come from the factory like that or did it have to be modified to right hand after it arrived in India?

  5. Shaandar Dil kush ho gaya , nice work

  11. i want a camero 1968 that's in India even an abandoned one.if any one knows please inform. thank you.

  12. I have known, ridden and even driven this car. It was retired as No.3 (ten number)car in 1975 with registration number CPX 3. The car that replaced this car as No.3 was a black Ambassador.
    The rear windshield of this car was broken in the Hindi agitation of mid 1960's, in which a stone was hurled at this car, that was No.1 ( CPX 1)car then.Since the original windshield was not available, a metal contraption housing the rear glass of Ambassador was placed in place of the rear windshield.

  13. Sir, thanks for information you have given. Actually I am 48 years old and this is my dream to have vintage car. But in india i dnt know where to find. Please help me
