What is the reason for the doubt? it is indeed a DX,note the monograms,tinted glasses and most important feature,the clarion speakers visible thro the rear windshield.

The car has run 1.2Lakh kilometres,Seats have been redone,Original clarion radio cassette player is replaced(speakers are there).and fourth owner.considering the mileage covered and the ownership it is really surprising that the car looks really great(of course ,pictures can be deceptive) asking price is not that high -Rs.65000/-
definitely worth a buy for a SS80 fan especially for those nearby to where the car is located

Yet another SS80 still in regular use that I often see lately. This car has the "800" grille badge in Red, which I believe the early SS80s had. It would be rare to find now?

Gypsy's and Fiat (Padmini's) wiper arm should work on the SS80.

i dont think the gypsy wiper arm will work as its mounting mechanism is similar to the type II maruti 800..

experts please throw some light and if anyone has modified the assembly to make it compatible to type II wiper blades.
