This is India’s very first Maruti 800 SS80, a car whose keys were personally handed over to its owner, Harpal Singh , by the then Prime Minister of the country – Indira Gandhi. While Harpal Singh used the Maruti 800 for over 25 years, the car was neglected in his final years due to ill health. Now though, it has been completely resto-modded, and ready to hit the roads again. This video takes a quick look at this iconic, resurrected Maruti 800 SS80, and shows us how it drives after the extensive resto-mod effort. AGM Technologies – a car customization outfit from Delhi – has handled this resto-mod.
The resto-mod job cost about Rs. 6 lakh, and this includes the total overhaul of the car, including the engine, transmission and suspension.
