Diesel Charade Waiting for Some Love, Needs Input, Suggestions, Comments etc
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.
Should i buy this one and restore it (it has everything including its diesel engine) or should i look for something in running condition?
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)?
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).
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.
