Mach diesel or petrol you need to list out what work is required then we could take a shot at giving you some objective ranges/numbers otherwise it is like throwing darts in the dark

So needs complete tin work & paint = Rs. 50 to 80k based on type of paint system you opt for. Hubcaps may not be a real problem, headlight may cost 12 k to 20k based on where you source it from even cheaper if you get someone to bring it in from thailand/Malaysia/HK/singi/Germany etc. If the rest is intact trim/body line/engine (no need for overhaul)/dashboard intact etc go for it! if you go for a retro A/C fitting it may set you back 15k as I understand this is a non a/c model, watch out for load factor on the engine as she is just a 200D ay not be advisable.

Deduct these from quoted price or else tell us what is it being quoted at

Hi

It is an AC model but needs to be fixed. The quote is 1.25. Not much work on engine but interior needs to be redone totally. Luckily dash and steering is okay. What do you think?

Forget this one its way too overpriced for the junk you are getting.
Contact Kasli. He knew about a great W115 for sale. Send him a PM before its gone.

By turbo diesel i would think its a W116. Thats the first S class to carry that engine but its not the first gen s class. Please post pics here and the price.

Poor Morris 8!! I could understand Amby or Padmini bumpers, but MARUTI'S??!! Gimme a break!

Hmmm.......are y'all sure the VW badge is off a splitbus?? I've several of these pinned on the front grilles of many local tourist buses (the ones with round headlights, large flashy grilles and blingy hubcaps!)...I remember one even had a large "V" sign like what came on cadillacs!
