    If you are vintage lover then money of 200k will worth other wise sell it and find a good car in your range.

    MarkII is a beautiful car and is not that hard to restore as its parts can be found, especially in Mardan.

    For your inspiration..

    hmmm your car seems quite in difficult condition. why don't you try some other MarkII in better condition? (although a bit hard to find)

    Rear lights and bumper are toughest to find. other parts are available some how. you can check "Chatrali Autos" (near FC Building, Sunehri Masjid Road, Peshawar) for a number of parts etc.

    Rims on the light blue MarkII are not the common one, hence difficult to find.

    Good to see a 3S in the engine bay. Very powerful engine with pocket friendly consumption. How much it cost to you? i am also considering a swap..
    If the fenders and doors have too much waves on it, you better consider changing them with new one. Chatrali Autos can be helpful.
    I have heard that local chroming become blacken pretty soon, so decided not to go for it.
    205/70 are very big tyres. will affect the consumption and acceleration. i am using 205/60 in my another MarkII, can feel alot difference.. Blue one have 195/65.
