Is the Safari you have procured a 4 WD? What is the Engine, GB, TC(if present) condition?
Thanks! All in running condition. I can give you details of the breaker if you want.

After seeing the mods that you have done on the MM540, I am sure that the outcome is going to be something magnificent. Its going to be one of a kind machine.
From where did you source the Willys station wagon? I remember, in the late 80s, during my schooling days at ooty, there were a handful of them there.

Do you think you'll need to look up a Dicor to check for any enhancements?
3) What are the specs on the Nissan 4.2L?

Looking forward to updates!

Cheers,

I do not plan to convert the vehicle into a highway cruiser, though I will want a vehicle reliable enough to hit the high ways at good speeds, on the way to an OTR.
I will check on all the strengthening done on the new Dicor chassis. Thanks. The Tata's were more worried about the power handling capacity of their gearbox if I am not mistaken.
I doubt I will find any engine churning out more than 150 bhp.
Do let me know if you have any ideas.

I need some help on the Safari's tech specs relevant to the front and rear diffs, options for suspension lift kits etc. All help will be appreciated.

Hey Beboy,

As mentioned in the thread below its a Dana44 at the rear. Some more info of your interest is found here:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-te...ntial-lsd.html (Question about safari Limited Slip Diffrential (LSD))

About a lift kit, I remember seeing a video on youtube and some more research led me to this website:

Tata Club Italia

Would help to use google translate for the above unless you can read Italian!

Cheers,
Adi

P.S. Do reach out to our fellow bhpian "Ignazio" from Italy. He is fairly conversant with specs and possibly mods.

Jyobeb, IIRC the nissan patrol 4.2 diesel is around 138bhp at 28kgm .

The landcruiser 4.2 d engine is a bit more powerful than the nissan.

I remember a certain person could help source the engine in a months time.

Any plan for something like this ? actually I would like to build it once, when money and circumstance favors.

Interesting notion. I love the old Willys station wagon look.

You could mod Mahindra sheet metal (Marshall) to approximate it.

The Willys seems to be taking its own time coming! The Safari chassis and suspension is ready for the transplant!
