Interested people can ask for one Mr Bilal who runs his scrap business shop opposite Equinox Business Park on LBS Road, Kurla. Bilal's shop is one of the road facing one in the line of the bus stop.



I took his cell number but not sure if I can post it without his permission.



For the benefit of team-bhpians, I clicked a couple of pictures from my cellphone when I was passing by.



Strange that I had posted this lead earlier, but never got published. Must have been due to a technical glitch.



Has anyone else seen it too?

Could you please help me with Mr. Bilal's number?

@egangsta

I'm looking for 1/2 Ton & 1 Ton trailers. It would be very helpful if you could PM me the contact detail of the Tbhpian who picked up the trailer.

Check with police auction. You can find out by going there. Go on mysore road below flyover after kalasipallyam market, the yard and office is next to police parade ground. They are very cooperative and helpful.

Hi, I am looking to buy either a MM550 or a Gypsy (Armed Forces ones ONLY). Does anyone know of sources in Delhi? I've been to the Mayapuri market and found 2 MM550s which were not registered nor in working in condition and the seller was trying to be act like a bankroller.

Hi Zulfi

Do you have GPS location for this place?

And any contact details or leads to contact any concerned person?

Also interested in off-roading. After getting used to driving the jeep will go for OTRs in future. But first wants to buy a jeep and understand the technicalities and behaviour. Actually my village/farm has lot of scope to have fun with a 4x4.

Personally i prefer a diesel over petrol and i like MM rugged look over gypsy classy look.
Here is your JEEP in its hay days.

Have managed to find an mpfi,gypsy king which has just been auctioned from army. as from the pics, its got some some dents, no lights, seats are gone, tyres are gone and theres no battery ! What I want to know is, will the engine and all of this auctioned vehicle be good ? As per the dealer, the engine and other mechanicals is as good as new ! Havent seen the vehicle yet because its not in my city.

Can anyone who has bought an ex army gypsy advice if the engine and other technicals of these auctioned vehicle are good and its only body,painting + registration that I need to majorly worry about ?

Thanks

Of the 8 gypsies I picked up from auctions, none of these were in starting condition. Though the engine room seemed untouched, most of the sensors were missing. Inspect the vehicle thoroughly beforehand. Why don't you ask the dealer to give it to you in starting condition. Let him bill you extra for the battery etc

I agree with Jerrycan, You cant even think of small tit bit parts which you would missing when you start restoration, specially sensors in Gypsy MPFI and pump related parts in Jeep.
In my opinion, its worth paying few thousands extra for vehicle in running condition.

In my case its Punjab Government department.

Guys so the auction was held today. The Jeep that I had my eyes on got the maximum quote of 32,500. Now the option is either to pay the bidder the quoted amount and retain the jeep or pay him a small premium to let go. The decision needs to be made by Monday so please help me out. Does it makes sense to pick it up? The other details and pictures of the above are at Page 45 of this thread.
If it is to be picked up for restoration what would be the price, tops that I should pay to still call this deal as a bargain.

dear WanderNomad,
My basic analysis of jeep through pic:
1) Body line is clean and may not have much rust
2) most of the parts are intact and in place
3) Even if current engine ( International - B275) is dead, you can put a DI (non turbo are available from 30 to 45 K) and use it for years
4) In best case you can put another 30 K (excluding papers and vehicle cost) and start using it, in worst case you need to put another 70 K (30 K of basic maintenance and cost of engine transplantation) excluding papers and vehicle cost to get this jeep on road.

Just an option to throw, dont you get late 90's civilian CL500 with Di and 4+R within 1 lac? these auctioned vehicles can throw you lot of surprises and do include your opportunity cost/headache to restore the vehicle and run around for paperwork.

Hope it helps !
