Another SS80 Standard for sale in OLX
http://thrissur.olx.in/1984-maruti-8...-iid-535868078
Although I have no idea about the present condition and owner of this,know a bit of its history
this car was among the first 6 cars delivered in Trivandrum in September1984 and was booked and owned by a surgeon in Trivandrum.at the time of delivery it was offered a lakh of rupees in lieu of the then onroad price of Rs.54600/-.The good doctor did not succumb to that temptation and used it for 10 years before parting with it when he bought an SB308 in 1994.
Another thing is this car was partially repainted in 1989 or so

Great mituadas. The job is pretty clean and the car looks smashing. I think that now you need to disclose your sources of getting the spares for the SS80.

Hey guys,
Was wondering if anyone one of you can help me in sourcing parts for my SS80 restoration project.I have been trying to source parts for the past year now with no luck. Would be of great help if you could put me in touch with someone who could get the parts.
Thanks

Extremely well done. I liked it.
My personal opinion : Please get rid of the stickers - SUZUKI from side, WRC from windscreen and also the black strips on the headlights. Then you have a stunner.

Nicely restored piece of Indian automotive history . Would be better without the SUZUKI & WRC badging.

An SS80 has joined one of the famous stables in Kollam. It is a single owner car and the current owner has paid a princely ransom for it.

The rims were painted white by the previous owner and it will be back to silver soon.

P.S: The car will be with me for a week .

Although the car is a reasonably good example,I wonder whether if it is worth a ""princely ransom"' if one really has paid that for it.The car looks like it is has been repainted,original roof gutter trim is missing, the parking lights are of post 94 model,and it is a standard model,not a deluxe. Does it have the OE Stanley sealed beams and also the original chrome decals on the rear,Also the original standard seat covers?
A car worth a ""princely ransom '' is already in the forum and that is this
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vbpicg...do=view&g=2735
It has covered only 35000kms till date
also here is another Bhpian' standard SS80 of the same shade in original paint from Kerala
