Its one of my lifelong wishes to buy an old/ vintage car and gradually rebuild it and eventually use it as my primary ride.
I spent the last night going through ads of all the vintage cars for sale online. I need to get a car for cheap and then build it gradually instead of buying a rebuilt car.
The two options I am considering are Chevrolet Caprice Classic (1980-90), which I believe I can get in 4-6 lacs and Mercedes Benz 200D (1980-90) which I think I can get in around 2-3 lacs.
I need suggestions as to which car will be easier to get and rebuild and eventually maintain. Whether one option will be financially costlier than other and if I should expect a dead end.
Also, how much investment will be needed to restore car in its original condition and upgrade necessary features etc. in order to use it for daily commute.
If you you know any car of these two models for sale, please recommend it and also feel free to add other options.
Looking forward to your valuable guidance and suggestions.
