It is better that you stick to the original brake system.
By the way the huge SUV type Rear view mirror looks odd on this small car.OE is still available

the car is a good example but not the one of a kind, as claimed by the owner.
No original hubcaps,seat covers, C pillar garnish(repainted),non priginal parking light lenses.
I am not commenting on the price but would like to know the opinion of fellow bhpians who criticize those who comment about absurd quotes for cars on the premise that the 'owner can ask anything for his vehicle and others should not utter a word about it''.In my humble opinion, this type of quotes are the result of such attitude.

Quote is 7 times the original cost of the car. Maybe I should start investing in ss80 instead of Fixed Deposits

Got these pics of an SS80 Gathering in Trivandrum. Even though some of them are not in Mint shape, its good to see clubs forming for this future classic!

this photo must have been taken sometime in the period 86-90 because this is the old British made Double decker bus plying on the Eastfort-Kesavadasapuram -Medical college route.The Indian made double deckers never plied on this route
The location of the photo is OVERBRIDGE junction,the shop is NATARAJ and sons,the first dealer of KELTRON Televisions(colour) in the state(the board is also visible) and it was said it was the lowest priced colour tv in INDIA Rs.6996 in 1984

That is my father's daily commute, which he chooses over the other new generation cars at his disposal. Bought on the 17th of Feb, 1986, it has covered 51000 kms and drives like a dream. Sound system is redundant because cassettes are no longer available and there is nothing being broadcast here on MW. Still running with the original sealed beams and horn set. Please excuse the poor picture quality.

Please congratulate your dad for maintaining this beauty in such an immaculate condition. Have never seen a more "Original" SS80 till date. Some more high quality pics please- It would give us some solid stuff to drool
