Saw this jeep at a garage in Bahadurpura. Its a wish from someone who wanted a Bantom and it came true in this form. Now it can be anones who wants it, just 2.80 Lacs.

This jeep looks clean and good, IMO this should not belong in here.

Wow the jeep actually looks cool. I do like it. Just a small change in the front grill and it's good to go.
Definitely doesn't deserve to be here.

Looks great. Like the grill too, have never seen something like this before.

Only if the rims were a bit more old-school in design it would have been a perfect picture.

Awesome! But those alloys dont really give it that rugged look. Steel rims in the similar color would make it look hot.

This was done to look alike a 1941 BANTAM BRC-40 model with Toyota/Isuzu engine at a place called Bahadurpura in Hyderabad. I would say this place is Haven for Jeeps, you could find a lot of jeep converted in to Ford/Willys and if you wish they can change them to any jeep you want a photo/picture is what all it requires.

I guess there was a thread regarding a 1941 Willys MA look alike and heard it sold for wooping 3 lacs. The level of work done here is amazing however this is the world of tricky/smart people. Watchout!

Will post more pictures of the workmen and workmenship exclusively for you folks.

Hi folks I am back with some news here. Apart from the news this is my 400th post and I want to dedicate it to JEEPS which have been my love apart from other classics. You will find the below pictures of my Jeep which I acquired few months ago. 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

I have been working on this Jeep from a couple of months and would like to share this project with you like minded guys. This jeep was my dream since few years, I carry lots of love, passion for a low bonnet/CJ2A, CJ3B, CJ5, CJ7, 550XD in short jeeps.

In fact this Jeep was a CJ3B which was converted into CJ2A in the past, thought of putting her back to CJ3B inspite of expense but was refrained to do so as the entire body has to go through large scale modification, apart from that I was suggested by an experienced denter the conversion from CJ3B to CJ2A is done perfectly (He took sometime to make out) she adorns a simple reliable Diesel motor aligned with 3 speed Original Willys gear box with 4 wheel drive option.

So far...Body work completely done, new tool box (hand made).

Mechanical...Four wheel option revived by changing the front housing and its parts, rear housing completely serviced with new bearings, cronion gear into them. Exhaust pipe changed, Battery, dianamo.

Painting is still due as wheather is not co-operating.

I need all you experts to advice and guide me to move forward. I am still with some questions unresolved, confusions unsolved.

Thanks

Bala

Thanks Ram for the encouragement, yes this restoration would also be of a same concern as like in my other projects so far so good. Hoping for the best. I am also eagerly waiting for the outcome and you all will witness the same with me. I will update some more details shortly. Good news is that the painting is done and has come up really well. Uuff!! Trust me painting a jeep is not so easy its so much of a hardwork than any other vehicles so does the pricing 24K. Happy man seeing my war head shaping up.
