Spotted it again. Sorry for the lousy picture quality.

I spotted this Maruti Suzuki SS80 DX near my friend's residence. It seems to have the original tinted glass, external antenna & chrome beading. I couldn't get a proper photo of the interior, from the outside I could make out that the car had aftermarket seat covers (in place of OEM leather seats). The body seems to be in decent condition for a 32 year old car.

Found these pics on Facebook, of this meticulously restored SS80. Lucky car and an equally lucky owner, I'd say. Congrats Man.

Was this near The Polar Bear near Banashankari first stage? I see this and a Zen parked alongside near that location almost everyday.

Yep, this was right outside Polar Bear in Banashankari 3rd Stage. On the same road, there are 3 to 4 garages in which I see many cars like these getting repainted or serviced.

The above car seems exactly similar to this one
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post3760379 (Maruti Suzuki SS80 DX)
Please try to get more photos especially of the rear,seats,engine bay etc.
Especially check if the rear window balancer, Front shock absorbers, Drive shaft etc work perfectly.Also check if the Distributor is an ND make?

I am planning to pickup my dad's best friend's 1986 ss80. The car was in a fantastic position a couple of years back. Single owner immaculately maintained.

However age caught up with the owner and due to Parkinson he could not drive/maintain any of his vehicles. He had a 1100 d which he sold for scrap. When I came to know of this I offered to pick the 800 up. He also has a 1995 esteem in prestine condition which is looking for a loving owner.

I had gone to see the car today.

Few observations:

Rust has caught up with the 32 year old body. The floor is ok but the fender and the engine compartment is rusty.

Few dents here and there. The roof took a hit of a coconut a couple of years ago. Nothing that can't be fixed

Transmission is slick and so is the steering gear. Battery and electricals will ofcourse need a over haul.

Interior will need some uplifting as it is very old and saggy

I look towards this forum to help me restore it if I pick it up.

Posting some of the images:

.
After seeing the photos of the car, I cannot believe that the car was a well maintained example.From the exterior, the car seems to have been not kept in covered garage.Usually SS80 body is not that rust prone unless exposed directly to the elements.

Nice SS80 for sale at a highly Unrealistic asking price
