Thanks Anku & Devang for sharing pics.

Looks like you have long way to go bro.
How is the mechanical condition ? I see that the Engine is not in a good condition which means Engine transplant becomes the first task in your to-do list.

Are you planning to go for a bigger petrol engine or a diesel one? Here are my suggestions since you asked for it.

Petrol Engines
1) Isuzu 1.8L ( dwarak sir can give you all details - BTW I have his gypsy's old 1.0L motor)
2) Scorpio Petrol Engine-2-litre, 116 bhp, MPFI engine from Renault.
(Dont know the availability -but modern and powerful.)
3) Maruti 1.3 Carb or MPFI

Diesel Engines
1) Toyota 2C
2) Isuzu 1.8L ( I have this one on my 1987 MG410)
3) Fiat Palio 1.9L ( dont know any one has ever done this transplant )

Cheers
Shibu

Happy to see another gypsy build project.
Expecting a delight out of Project MonstAr ver. 2.0

I guess that you will be choosing the G16BB heart as its the favorite in your gang. ( It still remains a MYTH. he he )
with headers and freeflow, you can cross the 100 bhp mark.

Shackle lift & SPOA will have its own set of issues to deal with.
Choose the engine first and see what kind of lift is required.

With stock engine & 235s you should be able to manage with a spring recambering.

good luck on restoration.

My choice of colour- metallic dark grey or Pearl white

Congrats, The GYPSY bug still haven't left even after selling and you end up buying another one. Keep all the pics flowing on the progress of the vehicle.
BTW you didn't reveal the way you laid hands on the baby and year model kms clocked etc.

Transplant will be costly affair, you need it right now?

Devang,

If going for engine transplant, go for either 1.3l gypsy king engine, Esteem engine, 1.6 l baleno engine or last choice Isuzu 1.8l petrol/diesel. Never compromise on 4 WD. I mean do not take out t case even if your mechanic insists. SPOA is better for lifting the vehicle. Shackle length is not advisable because it can bend and leave whole structure leaning to one side.

As whicked wheels suggested you need good all terrain tyres.

@james
as of now it has brand new 215 section tyers, planning to keep a mudzilla as a spare set and if i get someone to buy my 215 then i will buy 235 for normal use.

@Dwarka,

i want to know if i get any of the above mentioned engine what all will i have to change?? only the main gearbox or the diffs and transfer case too.

is it possible to get esteem engine on current 4 speed box, its going to be fun to drive a short ration then.

Hmm i think i will endup with 1.6 only.

somebody mentioned that engine doesnt look in good condition,

I would like to correct it, Engine was built recently and really in good shape just that the vehicle was not used for 3 months so its dirty.
the major work is the tin job its rusted pretty badly.

Orange is the way to go - along with some Black highlights/accents..

My second choice would be a dull military green..

Woow love the black Gypsy. Looks hot in black. The scoop in the bonnet is different. form where did you source that from?
The HSR no. plate font also varies, is that not a standard one available?
