There should be a dedicated thread that classifies all M&M jeeps with proper specifications & detail.
There is a lot of confusion between diff. models & same things keep on getting discussed in diff. threads.

Just use the 'Search' feature and go through the jeep/MM related threads. All such things have been discussed in detail 'n' number of times.

He did said that this one came before the wire rim model came. One q, did the classic badge came with this model originally? And

Gurus, whats the verdict? Is it a good buy between 1.1 to 1.25 lakhs?

It is not a Classic by any stretch of imagination. This one is same as my CJ340, just a year newer, hence the name CL340, that's all. If everything is in good shape, it is definitely a bargain. Get it thoroughly checked for any problems.

Its not Classic. But a CL340 made like a classic. Now, if the owner tries to convince you saying that is a Classic, then there is something wrong. Some points to quickly identify a Classic. Classic has Hanging Pedals for Brake Cluch and throttle. This is coz classic has a Servo assisted Brake unlike CL340s. There will be cluster of lights in Dashbord for all indicators. Checkout GTO's classic interiors. Classic always had a Disc Brake upfront. Having said that, don't loose your heart, coz CJ340/CL340s are an extremely capable Jeeps, even better than Classic in off-roading applications. Thanks to the 5.88 Gear ratio of 340. And if you get it for 1.10 to 1.20 Grab it.

Thanks

Just noticed this now. The first Classics came out with wire wheels. There is no Classics before that.
@GTO, are you listening?

Thanks

The CJ340/CL340/Classic are Jeeps. Nuff said.

just my 2 cents. Even if this is not a CLASSIC, a CL340 is more then worth for 1.2lkh assuming the jeep is in good condition. just grab it!

Don't think what it is worth. Think how much can you afford.
If you have a total budget of 2 lakh than grab it. This way you can drive it around and keep upgrading it as you become more accustomed to the vehicle. Just get the engine checked by some mechanic. Even if it is in half decent shape it is worth it. Rest of the body work etc looks fine in the pics.
First upgrade I did recommend should be Discs + booster. Should cost you 10~15k.

cheers

That Willys clone is not even worth half the asking price. If you are game for that clone and doing all the work to get it into decent shape then you would be better off getting an army MM550 and doing it up.

If you want easy life then get the CL340 you mentioned earlier after a mechanic has check it for you.

i agree with big man.
that vehicle looks very "jugaad" and there is something fishy about it.
keep looking and dont jump in for the first vehicle that you find.you might regret it later.rajasthan is known for good jeeps and there shouldnt be a shortage. if u can then take a trip to mayapuri and see whats on sale.

Yogesh you are one lucky guy,
Most of us dont even finid one jeep even after months and months of searching and you seem to have found 3. The black one, the red one and now the willys clone.

I think that if anyone is searching for jeeps, jaipur has to be one of the places to search and look around
