If you are interested there is an ss80 DX for sale in Trivandrum with a garage owner near POPULAR VEHICLES(maruti dealer in Trivandrum).
Ajay any idea on the condition of the car? Also any clue on the price and any contact details about the seller?

Every time I hear about an SS80 for sale, my desire to own one comes alive. But it never materialized...

Sorry akbar,cannot agree with you on this.only concourse standard cars can demand that price.This car lacks originality and does not even look well maintained

I agree that the car lacks orignality. In cities like Mumbai there are hardly any SS80s left. That's what made me say that for 50k that's a good car as it doesnt need much stuff to make it concourse grade

I dont know about the ss80's in MUMBAI,but the fact is that only a concourse standard car is worth Rs.50000/-
It seems you have misconception regarding a '' concourse '' SS80 car.
First of all it should have been tampered with in the first place, should have not been welded upon, accident free etc.
also on the exterior itself,itself lot of items are missing like,rain gutter trims,TD(TOKAI DENSO) indicators,TD park lights, TD tail lightsstanley sealed beams,
the cost of these items itself(NOS) will come to around Rs.9000/-(if one is lucky enough to source them)

Yes.. orignal parts sourcing is almost impossible; Sourcing of normal parts for the car, made by other maunfacturers is also not at all easy. especially here in Mumbai. The worst thing is that even in Junkyards, there are no cars that've come for part-out recently. anyway. Good luck with your future buy

this is the exact link to the ss80 ad
Used 1985 Maruti Suzuki 800 Std (D288364) for sale in Bangalore - CarWale
although the paint is looking nice,it is not the factory paint which was NC then,but a recent paint with modern PU material.
the seats,dash,etc are original,nice.but the radiator has been changed,so has the airfilter. the roof gutter trim is missing
a good restored car,but definitely not worth the price quoted

Went to CST Road today to find parts again. Saw 2 SS80s there! This is the first time i've seen a dinkys at that place. One car is blue, 84 early model MAP reg. Pretty much gone. I got rear seat lock, gear leaver and rear dicky rubber beading from it.

THere'z one more black one parked on the bridge, that car is very good, 84 model, very less rust and the person there told me its running well. But it'll be broken. It got lots of good parts in it.

See if the black one has any of the OE TOKAI DENSO tail-lamps or side-indicators or the Stanley headlamps intact. They are worth taking.

Also the glasses if any of them are SUZUKI TEMPALEX.
