Dont want to repeat what others have said. Wonderful effort and result.
Regarding the tyres, is this the standard size? Would tyres from Tempo Trax be meatier and more stable to ride?

Thank you very much, all you guys who appreciate the work are an inspiration to me

Today i unusually woke up early, to pass time, i went through my dairy where i maintain the costing for restoration. I was more than to see the restoration cost of the Bus to have gone beyond 2.50 lacs.

But well worth the investment, it returns a smile every day i see it.

Hello Mr. Pavan Kadam.
My Bus is currently being restored in Hebbal Motors Works. I bought the Bus for little more than 5L. I will update you with the current resto status when I am back to Bangalore.

I plan to color the Bus with Red and White.

Here are some pics.

All the best and drive safe.

Regards,

Just saw this thread & your restored bus Pavan Saab.

I totally adore & respect you for such amazing restorations. The pics of your garage with your 2 classics looks amazing. What a result for 2 years of patience & hard work.

Kudos to the great man...

It was a surprise gift for me from Dad on my first wedding. So I can't comment more on the price.

This Bus is from Mumbai, not Goa.

I have seen this Bus last year with a Lawyer , The bus is run only 29000 kms and is BONE STOCK. Supposedly a 2nd owner since 1971.

Well , i rushed to meet Earthed the moment i saw this pic

He's not going to restore it, i got him to drive it out of the workshop to his Uncle's house nearby, Will be getting some nice rubbing polishing by weekend, before it goes to his house at Belgaum.

Nice gift, well, there is no price for emotions.

Enjoy the Bus.

Truly said about Pavan and his machines. Raj a hearty welcome from me too here.Next I am sure you will consider adding a classic VW microbus to give the MHawk company.

Pavan: The only 'barely classic' car we had was a 1986 model premier padmini (our first car) restored painfully to stock condition with all original parts in proper working condition.

but sadly, my dad passed that car to a relative of ours.

@ anjan: restoring & maintaining classics require a lot of time, patience & dedication, i am terribly short of it! but one day, i do aspire to buy an old 4x4 jeep & restore it. it wont be a classic (unless i buy a mahindra classic!!!) but thats just one of my wishes!

that bus from the photo appears that it requires a restoration and although agree that ""there is no price for emotions''' a "1971 baywindow offered for sale '' sure has a price and that is the reason for my comment.
