Maruti 800 is no longer on sale in India. But even today, there are lakhs of Maruti 800 cars which are plying on Indian roads. Some are 5 years old, some are even more than 30 years old. Some of these owners have already given their vintage (we can call Maruti 800 vintage now, right?) cars a makeover.
One such owner who has recently given a makeover to his Maruti 800 is from Indore. In order to modify his car, this owner did not go to any fancy modifier, but to a local garage about 150 kms away from Indore.
This garage is Kadari Auto Gerej, which is located in the Barwani district of Madhya Pradesh. This garage or gerej, has quite some reputation – atleast within the local circles – for modifying old Maruti 800 into Mahindra Thar / Gypsy look alike for less than Rs 1 lakh.
Yes, for less than Rs 1 lakh the mechanic at this garage will be able to modify your Maruti 800 into a Mahindra Thar look alike. Thanks to this, the popularity of this gerej is growing by the day. Watch the mechanic (Vasim Bhai) of this gerej modifying the Maruti 800 of customer from Indore, and explaining the process in detail.
The car has been completely modified. It is also the most elaborate of mod jobs ever done by Vasim Bhai. From modifying its bumpers to bonnet, from tyres to the rear profile. From installing jerry can to multiple led lights – all giving the car an SUV’ish look. This car no longer looks like a Maruti 800. And the fact that it was done for a sum of just Rs 92,000; is commendable.
Engine has not been changed. Engine continues to be a 800cc petrol motor. This 3 cylinder engine delivers 37 hp. It is mated via 4 speed manual transmission and has top speed of 130 kmph on stock car.
