Hi Amar,

If i were to purchase your Gypsy and trasnport it to Mumbai, would you or anyone else have any idea about the cost to transport, re register in mumbai and the Octroi costs as well. You have done it up beautifully.

Many Thanks
Raj

Hi Amar, I felt really sad to see the Gypsy in classifieds. I really hope it finds a good place here itself and the new owner takes as much care as you have taken.

Hey, in Canada, buy a SJ413/410, Sidekick etc and do off-roading there. So, we all can join you there when we visit there

Cheers,

#Desmosedici
Registration I hae no idea, but why do you wanna transport a vehicle which is already drivable??

Just drive it down to Mumbai from Delhi. The vehicle is very capable and has done trips from Ludhiana to Delhi and around!!!

And guys having restored 2 vehicles myself nothing can beat an already restored vehicles in terms of time and money. The small small detailing is the part which is the most time consuming and tedious.

Think about it but if I were you I would drive it down anyday and it wouldn't take you more than a couple of days and cost just 5-6 k or so for the fuel and another 4 k for night stays and food etc.

PErfectly doable!!!

Hi Harjeev,

you have said what every jeep enthusiast would do but being in a professional world of finance, i dont habe enough leaves in my hand to do that hence the mention of transport.

You think thats an option that many wouldnt consider, definitely not, driving is always the best!!!

Cheers,
Raj

@Khan,
I am thinking of buying a Jeep Rubicon whenever i have money and go on offroad trails here with my wife.

Guys from T-bhp are more than welcomed at Vancouver anytime.

@Desmosedici,
The gypsy is in perfect mechanical condition for a road trip from Delhi to Bombay.There is a 5K discount on the gypsy to retain the registration(PB-10 CQ 0693) becuase this was the biggest hurdle as in ludhiana only Bharat II or Bharat III emission norms vehicle are registered and i had to get a recomendation from CM office for the same.

And 693 is my house number in ludhiana.

Yes yes! you can write an exciting travelogue on our travel section. Transporting it on a truck will cost more than 20k. driving will eat note more than 7k worth of petrol. Plus all the excitement thrown in for free.

Transferring to mumbai will need NOC from PB-10 rto. Normally you will have to pay the cost of registering a new gypsy, atleast thats what is in rajasthan and west bengal. every noc has a time limit within which you have to re-register with a new district/ state.

The idea to drive down is really great however the work involved to get all the transfer is a pain.

My main bottleneck is to sell off my WagonR and utilise that money for a Gypsy. I am searching for one with Maharastra registration as it would be easy to get the re registration done.

But again, very few good Gypsys available in Mumbai and adjoining areas.

Checked out a Gypsy on Saturday, it was a 1990 Nagaland Registered Army MG410 but stickered as MG413W. The engine 'looked' good but did not feel good and price quoted was a whopping 2.40 Lakhs. I outrightly refused.

Gypsy Gurus, please help me if you guys come across any Gypsy Kings around Mumbai.

Moderators - Hope i am not Off the Topic.

Thanks.

Cheers
Raj...

@Desmosedici,
If WagonR is your primary vehicle don't sell it for buying a gypsy, it's only good as a second or third vehicle.

i dont have enough bling to have 2 vehicles and i generally drive alone or maybe with a pal and owning and driving a Gypsy has been a childhood dream. So now can think of achieving the dream with my own money instead of my dads.

I dont mind having just a Gypsy standing below my balcony.

It would be a lovely sight.

Thanks for the tip anyways. Would get a Gypsy now and get another car when i get married.

I got in touch with KSM Vtec today. Will have a look at his 2000 Army Carb 1.3.

Cheers
Raj
