Not strange at all. Mitsubishi did actually make some jeeps under license from Willys. There are some of these pieces still on the roads today.

very true,there were few models as J53(diesel version),there are few clubs and garages in japan who are still restoring and transforming these jeeps with mitsubishi 2.6ltr petrol engines with gbox, http://www.jeepevolution.com just take a look at this.

Nice pictures, thanks for sharing. Its amazing to hear and see the 4x4 crowd is at swing there. Some machines are real extreme.

Anybody here have any idea how much these cost second hand in Srilanka and the duty to have them imported here. A vague idea would be helpful.

Duties are prohibitive regardless of where you import it from. The price you paid doesn't matter. They look at the orignial price of the vehicle when new and then deduct about 5 % per year to a maximum of 25%. You then pay about 175% of that value under general import license or 110% if availing TR. Vehicles have to go to Mumbai first.

you could import the components of such a vehicle at a much lower duty, find the mule in india, say a mahindra or a land cruiser and have an expert create such a vehicle for you at a much cheaper price than any direct import. The duties are much less on engines and components anyway. You could also get an expert mechanic flown in from Sri Lanka to do the vehicle for you in India, does not cost that much to fly someone in on a 1-2 hour flight. That IMO is an easy way to own an extreme off roader in India on the cheaper side.

As far as I know it is not allowed to import a used vehicle in India.
