Great to own a king. Need more details on buying experience, how many kms it had clocked? etc.

The thing in is you should have to be there till the vehicle is moved into the transport else what you see is you won't get when delivered. The parts will be changed during the whole process.

Anyways all the best. Keep the WIP pics flowing.

Will they clean up the vehicle and give it to you. Or does it come in the 'as is' condition.

Yes, this place is very tricky & newbies are identified immediately. It is better to take someone experienced/ regular with you. Identify th vehicle that you like, and ask about that in the last!

2000 carb gypsy would have costed approx 90-100K. Pl confirm.

The Gypsies are available in all conditions (as is/ running) and they even have 'setting' in a few Punjab RTOs for getting vehicle registered in your name. This is also a place for cheap restoration of the vehicle.

I have personally purchased a 1999 Carb Gypsy King in June, and after an initial work there (which I found sub-stanard) I got the entire restoration done at MSM. Enclosing a few pics also.

Cheers!

ashish you're rite the price quoted was 1.25 but after a very long discussion we finally sattled for 1.05k+ transportation of 7k

I have always wondered what the two extensions on Army Gypsies are? I am talking about the extensions which look like illuminaiton lamps just above the headlights. Also is there any use of keeping them on the civilian ones?
I have not seen them on any civilian gypsies(discounting the ones bought from Army Disposal).

.These lights are standard on every Army vehicle. These are useful during the night as these vehicles will not be detected from air. They are called kanwa lights by the military guys in my town.

Congrats on buying the Gypsy!!! I myself am on the hunt for a gypsy but havnig restored 2 disposals in the past year, I will definitely wait!!! Moreover I am on the lookout of a MPFI and not a carb so Ill have to wait!!!

Do PM me incase any help is required or liaison needs to be done in Mayapuri!!!
The guy whom you've bought is Pali and the other big shop in the area is Padam motors!!! These both have the most vehicles in stock but one has to be really careful when dealing with either of them!!!

What are you doing about the registration!!! This is one area that I find Mayapuri the shadiest but there are no other option available to us!!!

I will keep checking this thread regularly for the updation on the restoration process!!!

Best of luck!!!

OT. Yes I know Shiva. He is from Chennai.

There is a separate thread for the landslides in the Nilgiris. Thanks for your concern.

Slightly on the higher side but nevertheless congratulations. And the mpfi gypsies are surely on a quite higher price keeping in mind those are mayapuri disposals. I think a 4-5 year old civilian mpfi in the range of 3-3.5L is a way better choice. And if one can stretch nothing like a brand new one. So how much estimate you have in mind for the complete restoration?

It was good that you actually got a running gypsy because normally from exterior lot of things will look intact in engine bay but they have missing parts here and there.

Congrats for owning a Gypsy. Do write a complete restore thread.
