Indian Isuzu petrol in NA, though MPFI version is available. Gearbox it has 5 speed but gearings are not really suited for 4x4 vehicle, so generally the gearbox is chucked out. Also 4x4 conversion of that gear box is a very tricky affair as far as i know.

Default updated pics

here is how she looks now

few things i dont like
have tried a blue strip on the wheels , going to go for a yellow wheel stripe
thinking of changing the bumper light rack to something more angular, this seems a bit to squared for my liking..might change the four lights to three as a result
three big ones compared to two and two
else quite happy with her
no engine yet though
any drawbacks please let me know

I didn't understand this part. Sorry if I'm sounding dumb.

Awesome, simply awesome! Love the colour Blue/Black topping my list too! Looks devilish, not liking the excessive lights tho al, the pipe section on the bumper goes with the square body, keep it!

give us a few more shots man, one just aint enough!

hey, it definitely looks gorgeous now. The suspense is still on about the motor. so, its going to remain a 2 seater eh.
The bumpers look good. do you plan to put a winch on it?
I know its a bit too late but I'd have suggested chopping off the rear body a bit similar to khan_sultan's SPOA gypsy.
are you planning on doing OTR's on this gypsy?

I saw your oranjie on autocar show while on a kingfisher flight. it looked fabulous.

Supar gypsy! Looks like someone likes to LIGHT the whole world while driving. Give us some more shots of her. And I pray you get the requisite engine soon, so we can enjoy her offroading pics.

Looks fantastic! Well... drawbacks?- Make it a SPOA. Those huge wheels deserve it. Shackle extension doesnt quiet help.

Beautiful. Its my all time favorite color combination - Metallic blue paint and black wheels. The lights look a wee bit excessive though. I know you have a fetish for lights but 10 of them?? I would definitely experiment with remodeling the light rack to make it gel more with the body and in the process, lose a couple of lights.

Otherwise, as usual for anything that comes out of your stable, you have a gift for redoing 4X4s my friend!

Allan, the Gypsy looks killer and a perfect city ride. The blue color looks very very nice on the Gypsy. Did you try the door handles in black color? I think they would ad more contrast to the side view.

As always, a quality product from your stable.

PS: Which are those Rear View mirrors and how are they attached?
