Price quoted - 1.2 lacs ( negotiable on the table upto 5 k )
My advice is to avoid the carburetter version altogether.
Try and get a 2000 upwards mpfi version.
Mayapuri prices for 2000/01 model gypsies float between 1.4 to 1.6 lakh mark depending on the condition.
It is well worth the extra money.

Cheers

There is no radiation in Mayapuri now, claimed by Greenpeace (NGO who sent his radiation experts) on 20th May 2010.

Hmm i see , i did got to Maya puri again today even though i knew that it would be closed today as i had some work in a nearby area however the gypsy posted by me seemed to have been sold cos there was a different ex-army parked at it's place.

I called up the guy whom i had met last time and he told me that he had 10-11 more ex armys with him and that i could pay him a visit on Monday and take the pick however i doubt if i would be able to go there today.

BTW i also took wifey to show Maya puri to her as she was interested in seeing all this. Her comments were " How on earth can these vehicles run fine after restoration" and that was when i told her to visit the threads here and see.

I did manage to click a few pics

don't get the carb. look out for an MPFI or get the carb converted to MPFI. Power Steering i would not recommend on a gypsy. THE AC would set you back by another 15K+ for a second hand unit.

Does he have any MPFI's?

So far i've only checked out the carb and yet to see the MPFI ones. He also told me that he had baleno engines for around 40 k.

I would need the AC at any cost as wifey would not approve w/o it..PS can still be compromised.

BTW is AC suggested/effective in gypsies??

I did not check the prices but would surely do when i go there next. Let me know if you have any specific questions as that might help me in probing little more.

The guy that i approached told me that he has around 10-11 gypsies however i did not check if he has MPFi ones or not but he's the one from whom even Aman sources his gypsies ( so i'm assuming he would have some )

Aman has converted carbs to MPFI. do note that getting the Baleno engine would mean an engine overhaul too and spares are expensive. but the good part will be if you replace the entire engine and use the baleno's compressor and ECU, you won't face the stalling issue as in the 1.3's with AC.

can you get me details on the baleno engine?? this would mean the complete engine minus the gearbox(and the condition of the engine), AC compressor & ECU

Sure i'll get the details however my budget is not very huge, 2 lacs or maybe a little more.

Also if someone can tell me the disadvantages of a carb engine..Why is everyone against it?

Can't a carb engine be rebuilt properly to perform well?

There is nothing wrong with 1.3L Carb engine Gypsies. Ypu can reas Ashish's experinces with a carb gypsy below (although his problems were with work done at Mayapuri and not with the vehicle itself)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...ushranger.html (My Gypsy Rebuild - Bushranger)

I had a carb engine in my gypsy for 11 years. It is a very reliable engine and nothing goes wrong with it. Only thing is that since you get the 1.3L MPFI engines in the junk market which is more powerful, people tend to go for it. With the MPFI you pick-up will be slightly quicker and you would have slightly more top speed but nothing more. Drive a Carb 1.3 and you will see that they also have decent pick up and good top speed (I had got mine up to 120kmph).

All depends on what is your planned end use of the vehicle.

Cheers
Ankit
