The issue is mine auction receipt is of a lot of 6-7 different vehicles and he is not able to determine value of 550.

Can anybody help with either auction receipt of only 550 2001 model or invoice of 2001 550?

cheers

This time I am NOT going to post ANY Be assured .

Hmnn . Rotating the screen than neck, to watch odd pic angles, is a good discovery

Jokes apart, From the pics you have sent its a Peugeot engine Jeep . Looks mostly undamaged .

Thus quite doable as a camper type offroader you want to make it to.

Just one more thing, do check the chassis for any damage at following spots

# 1) Under the drivers feet . The area of one & half foot in length, just before the front leaf spring pivot point ( that falls just below drivers feet )

# 2) Where the upper end of the front shock absorber is mounted .

# 3) Below the battery bracket . Overflowing battery acids damage mounting brackets & then the chassis if kept neglected for long time . So necessary to check this in old vehicles particularly .


As a General Rule do not accept broken, too much rusted or bent chassis in Jeeps .

Any damage to the body tub can be repaired & wont affect handling of the Jeep .

Sudarshan .

P. S. Expect more pics with simpler angles .

Sorry mate, shall post them. Actually I also realised the weird angles only after they came up. Next time will double check and rotate accordingly. I had clicked them with the phone and then just uploaded so they came out like this. Sincere apologies.
I shall click the pictures of the places you have mentioned and upload. Also then the engine is not the International Engine? The chassis as reported is totally ok with no work what so ever. However more pictures to follow then.

Oh No, no need of apology etc.

BTW, the Jeep looks like the early Peugeot , it still has the dreaded dynamo on it , the gears look like 3 forward type, The brake drums are not the regular larger ones ( like later models ) . Old lady certainly she is, but looks like was serving good till the end . Most parts are in place & its not so long she has been decommissioned .

A three gear Peugeot is a fun to drive . The reverse is in place of the first of the normal four forward . I nearly missed banging a amby behind me at the signal once

Yes its a three forward one, with the reverse up front on left and the rest follow the tandem. I have a picture of its VIN plate as well and its still very legible. Will it be possible to replace the dynamo with an alternator? Have embarrassing memories of the dynamo on my premier padmani. Yups she was parked in a totally working condition to get a newer replacement but before the cogs could turn the austerity measures came in and no new vehicle is allowed to be purchased. Now the thing remains how to get it, haha.

Yes the fitment will be ready made ( brackets & all ) AFAIK .

BTW keep watch on the auction date, perhaps you may need an insider .

But I am the insider, mate. This makes it slightly complicated as I cannot bid for it directly. The only option will be to see who is the highest bidder and then arm twist him into letting it go for as small a premium as possible.

As Jerrycan told, it is left open in the yard. Also before taking it to the yard, they remove the tarpaulin/ soft-top for auctioning it separately. Thus the interior gets damaged quickly. CRPF handles them better. Vehicles will be supported by wooden planks to save the tyres. And this rusting happens mostly in central depots only (like Avadi). We got running vehicles from Coimbatore & Kochi.

BUG also got 550s from Avadi. The people at the depot had switched the rear axle with that of 540 2wd brake calipers were missing, there was nothing inside the rear brake drum and the gear box was in a pathetic condition.
It was filled with water and sludge.
Avadi is the only army depot down south, that disposes vehicles.
The vehicles are towed to Avadi from as far as Belgaum, Hyderabad etc., This vehicles are put in the open for a minimum of 6 months before being put on auction. After many unsuccessful bids, it's delivered after another 6 months or so.
