I wish Maruti makes this car again. My neighbor had a red One. It looked brilliant. The paint had faded, but who cares.
Such low seating, huge glass area. Functionality at its best.
I know, the same car cannot make numbers anymore. Maruti will never produce anything other than a mass seller. It possibly cannot seat 4 adults of our generation anymore. It might not even pass the basic safety standards.
But, let me just dream on

ss80 DX for sale in TN, car seems to have many original items in place
price is also not unreasonable like the usual quotes these days

The SS80 DX.
My pal's dad bought one in 1985...brand new.
Leather seats and all the rest of the stuff. Lovely choco brown.
Excellent looking car and felt great to sit in and/ or drive.

I got a red one (1984 model) second hand in 1996 paying 75000/-.
Kept it until 1998 and moved on to a 1988 model Gypsy.
Fine car indeed.

When I started this thread in 2007,there was not much fan following for the SS80. Now there are hundreds of SS80 cars running again on the roads and many obsolete parts have become available(although repro and of inferior quality)
Sir I am purana papi here, just that I come as guest enjoy the scene & go back to slogging of life :(
good to see so many enthusiasts here

I am looking to buy one in good condition in Mumbai City. Budget 50,000. May sound a bit less to some. Any leads, please DM.

Thanks

any way we can connect with the owner of this car. I am interested in buying one more ss80 and restoring it now that my 'restomod' project is about to be over

Folks. Do we have similar thread for SB308 ? Just in case you have both cars and know about it ?

I see a lot of people (incl me) restoring their SB308 but not finding such common thread. We all can help each other as many parts are similar OR available in same stores/vendor ?

Had the same question about a year back and this is what GTO had to say about it back then.

I understand. Do we have single common thread for SB308 then ? I am sure we have a lot of content, infact, I know people in dozens who are reviving their cars and some of them with Industry bench marks.
Admin : Do you think its advisable to have a common thread for SB308 only ?
