    Default Diesel Charade Waiting for Some Love, Needs Input, Suggestions, Comments etc

    AssalamOallikum Folks,

    I had floated a thread for diesel charade, as i was looking for one but no luck so far, also there are some in market but over priced (i Think). So, here is something which i can buy from my maternal Uncle. Although my whole family is against this project (Diesel Charade) but in 2008, once i drove it almost 200 kilometers (This same car), i fell in love with it, although at that time i was much into classic cars (2008 to 2011) but now its time to get one for my personal use. I like diesel charade's economy, comfort, road grip and A/C can be installed in it which will actually work to make it complete ride.

    I am attaching few pictures of the car which is already under restoration for last 5 years atleast, due to some personal/financial constraints etc by my uncle. It is original turbo diesel charade, non accidented but sitting under sky for last five years and it needs some love to reborn. Now i have few questions from experts and anyone who knows about restoration and about charades as well.


    1. Should i buy this one and restore it (it has everything including its diesel engine) or should i look for something in running condition?
    2. If i restore it, should i overhaul its original engine and find a turbo for it or should i go for a used kabli engine (55000 Rs quoted by @karakorm)?
    3. What color should i go for? (personally i want to have black color but since car is in outskirts of southern punjab and i doubt about their skill level for painting etc).
    4. Can we install 1C diesel engine in it for reliability, as i heard negative things about charade's diesel engine?


    Your Inputs, Comments, Suggestions are more than welcome. Specially from Xulfiqar bhai, Owais Younas, Chery1, Amir. I will upload some more pic to get more idea regarding condition of this charade.

    Shonas go ahead with the project. I cant say about the engine but yes I can damn guarantee that here in Karachi shershah market there is one dealer named ALLAH NOOr and the Kalu Shah...they are having half cuts and extremely awesome condition parts for charades 84 / 86 & Anda. I have seen last Saturday and my mouth was full of water when I saw roofs / doors / dashboards / lights and other interior parts.......uff maza agaya ....but yes he was asking a good hefty amount like I went for front grill/ lights squares plastics and bumper and he quoted 10k. You can buy complete doors and other stuff directly instead of getting it corrected from denter etc

Any good (and honest) painting technician can easily fix this thing, just make sure to make it rust-free. As for the engine, you should definitely rebuild its original diesel engine if it's never been opened since import to Pakistan. If it's already been overhauled just one time, again you can do it but it also depends on millage and damage done to the motor. If this is the case, you can go to Kabari market with experienced (and again, an honest one) mechanic and hunt a good diesel engine. It's very easy to find one because hundreds of Charade owners swapped diesel by petrol engines during 2007-2012 (CNG era) and some of the engines were factory sealed. But first you should consider rebuilding the one already there with the car.

    Now talking about 1C, please DO NOT do this at home, it's not even done by professionals under controlled environment

    1N is a possibility, but finding a clean engine is a real headache. Remember! the original diesel turbo engine is very efficient yet powerful (though little noisy) stick to the original engine.




    I (dis)agree, the first part of your statement is awesome but the last part is awful because the parts are NOT 5 times expensive (this ain't a Mercedes). I know a mechanic who overhauled a diesel charade g-11 parts + labor charges + transportation = 19,800 Rupees only! (and he call himself the 'Charade Master')



    Nicely explained like a master

    Sorry for late reply but thankyou so much for your input brother. I am just trying to get rid off some stuff so that i can focus to the project properly. By the way nice to hear that you are also interested in restoring a diesel charade like i am.

    Pretty Clean. You know what asad bhai, sometimes i get jealous of karachiites........ Reason behind it is, if you check pakwheels ads, most of the clean charades are in karachi.

    Seond Option is 1989 charade which was original design and self imported by its one and only owner but now its in petrol engine, multan number, original book and file maintained somewhat and condition is in front of you. Since owner of it is my father's friend, he is not giving an asking price and asks us to offer him. A/C is not working by the way. Please suggest the prices for both cars w.r.t market prices.
