The 1302 is not on the market as such. One of my denters who had worked on the car convinced the owner to sell it out to me as he used it very very rarely. He spent a bundle on it recently in the shape of new paint (though it did not need a paintjob as such), new head/tail lights, indicators and such. The demand would be high though. He was asking for 1 lac 20 thousand and was stuck on that when I spoke to him via my denter. Dont know where the car is now. I saw it when it was with my denter. I did have some pics somewhere on my cellphone but unfortunately have no bluetooth/infra device to upload it here.
I can give you my cousins cell number if you are interested. Please approach him if you are serious about buying the car as he is occupied with his work etc most of the time. He lives in PECHS, near Sindhi Muslim.I would like to meet you sometime soon which leads me to think we have to plan out a meet sooner than later. I have to see your bug and I think you need quite a bit of guidance.
I did not want to say this but I had heard from somewhere that your mechanic had made you think that Psyborg's 70 bug has a lot of pending bodywork/wrong front fenders etc etc. Has this same person led you to some 'ordinary' denter who quoted 25k for a 'normal' denting job??? I think you are being ripped off by someone you trust. Your bug, as seen in the pics here does not look that bad. Sorry for being blunt but I think you should be guided a bit before you fall down a deep hole!
Also I think a lot of the clicks and clunks are fixable without major work so hope that we meet up soon.
