Parts for this model is rare and expensive.As this is a rare model. A great car for high speed runs. Do you have any pictures of the car. Check suspension and steering tie rods and the exhaust manifold. Rear suspension is self levelling and rear struts are expensive. Performance is peaky so may not be ideal in indian traffic. Gearshift is a little clunky and is the dog leg type. Great for high speeds though
What colour is the car?
