No it can't be, considering that the C-pillar trims were taken off and the recesses in them closed.

Yes Stanher,

you are correct. the paint is not original its original color is blue , but later it was painted back to white.

Note:

Update from My Side:

i am not planning to pick that one since i took the car to nearest garage, but
came to know that head engine was slightly damaged.

and its not worth purchasing it for 20 k. my Mechanic told that it will be hard to get the original head and some other components.

That's a wise decision you have taken. Don't pick it up unless it is mechanically perfect.
Repairing a SS80 will cost you a bomb.

Bit late, consdering you have made up your mind.

One of my friend owns a similar red one. He still drives it to office. But parts are really hard to get. Maruti seconds dealer offered him 5k, so he decided to keep it.
