Bala, It's a nice jeep that you have there! What is the progress now? You had mentioned that you had been to Ramkote for the stencil work on the jeep. Please do post the latest pictures. Can't wait to see this machine out on the road!!

I spotted this Jeep in the lane adjacent to Karachi Bakery, Abids, Hyderabad. Looked to be in a good condition. Reminded me of a golf cart because of the top of the Jeep! Could not enquire about the owner as I was there with some guests and was in a hurry. Apologies for the poor photo as it was taken from my mobile.

I knew this jeep, it's driven by a old man. This jeep has a unique type of top which is local made (metal). It will not cover the entire jeep i.e., from the wind sheild to the rear but it is from the center and the wind sheild is dropped.

Yes he does fabricate new Cj5 body, infact he had done the same with an un usual size to fit a Mahindra Major chassis which is little lenthy than a origina Cj5 chassis and the body work is completed and now due for painting. Now a days MM540's are getting changed to Cj5 here and are fetching high prices which may go upto 5.5k which would include a Toyota Qualis engine, power break, power steering, bucket seating, alloy wheels etc.

Though this jeep is desielised with PEUGOT engine which is again my fav engine along with original Willys 3 speed gear box with 4x4 setup. I wanted to have a PRACTICAL JEEP for my requirement as I use it 70-80 kms a day along with my other vehicles. Now the time has come to give her a new look. The dream of owning a Willys and restoring it is coming true.

Please do comment/feedback your opnion/views. I will be also posting more information every week and also with other updates on AMERICANS, High BONNETS and other Modded jeeps.

Thanks folks
Bala

Hello Chanu,

I know I am too late in the game, but I recently moved to Hyderabad not knowing that this is supposedly the Mecca for jeeps. Your jeep looks amazingly good and mainly the work.

Can you please share the contact of the mechanic since I am searching for one and would love to reach out to him.

My email is Kurade.govind@gmail.com in case you are not comfortable sharing the contact information on the portal.

Hi Govindk ji,

Welcome to Hyderabad. To be precise you have not reached the place for mecca of jeeps but mecca for lot of other things as well, good food, nice places. Hope you enjoy the city and probably in your dream Jeep soon, let me know for any help you need.

Regards,
Bala.
