Wink Rs. 65000 for 2002 Flood Damaged 1.2 Palio

This aint a typo. This is true. One of my dads friends managed to pick one Palio 1.2 for Rs. 65000 (SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND ONLY), Cars are flood affected ones and are being auctioned at Kalyan. Fiat is giving them at throw away prices after rectifying them after the floods.
Any one looking for them could have a go. Rs.65000 wont even get any of us a good performance bike

At Kalyan Fiats Factory where they keep the cars after producing at Kurla.

The cars are brand new but flood affected.

Hey but if you can spend 4-5 lakhs buying a new car and keeping it a stock ride.Why not ,buy a palio at 65k put some parts from the company and let the others be aftermarket parts.Also you can get the car modified as ,you will be having the money which you didnt spend on a new car.If 100 years old cars can be restored this are just new borns.

Its not at all a bad option but depends how well they have been done up,if the car throws up within a year then you had it buddy,especially when the spares are so costly and i dont think the company is going to offer any warranty on those cars..

Cheers...

Hey, any idea if they have other models going at that price as well. I wudn't mind another 1.6 at that price .... I wudn't mind paying a few thousand more if I cud get a new GTX ..

More details pls if possible , or is it that they planning to shut down the 1.2 model thus lettung them go at that price. 65K is a steal no matter which way one looks at it ... !!

Cheers

Even if you buy a new car and sell it after one year, I am sure you will still loose more than 1 lac as depreciation

Just checked the Fiat India website... there is no contact information for the Kalyan outlet.
Would anyone be able to get the contact details please.

Another question... is this an auction or a fixed price sale ?
