Check more and you will see it is registered to the same person at both places. Anyways this is not a distress sale and she will stay with me until someone seriously interested comes around.

Do you mean to say you are the 1st owner who sold the car to a person in Karunagapally and then bought it back from him when you moved to Nilambur? If so, I truly appreciate the attachment you have for your car.

The new shape M800 was launched in June 1986 and not end 1986.
In 1990 old shape 800s, standard versions were getting sold for Rs 65000 and I saw a green coloured new shape 1987 model. getting sold for Rs 75000 at a secon hand car dealer's place in Kaloor.

The first owner of the car is Mr.C.Krishnakumar s/o Chandrashekharan Nair, the second owner is Mr.Sasidharan Nair s/o Achuthan nair
third owner is Mr.Premakumaran Pillai which I assume is your name and it is also correct that your name is found in 2 rtos .But still you are are the Third owner and not second as claimed by you.

Yep technicaly! One who likes her for what she is can overlook the obvious if needed. Let us give the owner count debate a halt now. Yes she is still for sale and for more details anyone can ring me up.
cheers

Nice to hear that you own a SS80 now. Post pictures and also during the restoration phase in a stage wise manner so that many are benefited.

The car is quite good and will be an attention stealer when work is completed.
Perhaps off topic but longing to see pics of the Amby, Lamby and Jawa too.

That was December 14 1984 - the 38th birth anniversary of the late Shri Sanjay Gandhi, when the first Maruti SS80X rolled out of the Maruti Udyog Ltd, Gurgaon plant.We have seen the B&W picture. This is the colour picture of the event below.
