I know it was a fluke find. I 've heard of people searching for years for one in any condition.

BTW: cost me 215,000.

Thanks

You are the third guy telling me about the mirrors. I better scour chor bazaar and keep a set in hand for a rainy day. Thanks.

And thank god i got to him before you did!


Last sunday, i must have spend close to 7 hours straight online going through every thread here on the classic, searching other forums and totally ODed on jeep info. One thing i noticed. The 4x4 section of team-bhp is the most no nonsense section of the entire site. No one talking about making a jeep bling bling or talking high speeds. 99.99% discussions to the point.
'M lovin it. Keep it up guys.

EDIT: @Hellboy: No not that one.

Continuing from my earlier posts:

After GTO's inspection and short TD, he was all praises. I'm quite thankful that he took out time from office to meet me.

I realized it's a JEEP thing. Even when you drive and another Jeeper passes you, you automatically flash your lights or give "the " look to the other guy.

Anyways, back to the post:
GTO scared the bejesus outta me:
"Tejas, keep the car parked in your building, or only go to safe theatres with enclosed parkings or five stars where they have proper parking facilities. Otherwise your car will be stolen in a jiffy. Politicians have a high demand for such cars. Ok, now let's go upto my office and discuss things that need to be worked on the car."

Now i'm already petrified and GTO's parked the car on the road and is asking me to come up. He's like relax,i know the pay and park attendant and then he instructs the dude to take care till i return. But my heart was still in my mouth till i got back.

My plans of parking her on the road are scrapped. Poor OHC has been banished on the road now (under covers ofcourse) till i can make other arrangements.

So, we go up and very patiently he answers all my noob jeep questions. Unfortunately he hadn't got his jeep that day but i will be going to see her soon. I need to know how the seat has been taken further behind.

He gives me basic maintainance tips, dos and don'ts.

He gives me the number of his service guy and whom to meet.

We draw up a comprehensive safety (theft deterrent) plan for the jeep. That is the first thing i'm gonna put into action and what i will not reveal here.

The following things were suggested i need to do in my car:
  • flush all fluids
  • check clutch cable
  • service brakes and adjust play
  • change wiring harness, hose pipes and belts
  • change air filter
  • move rear numberplate or it will break while offroading
  • check the 4x4 and the hubs since the car has never ever been put into 4 wheel drive
  • increase leg room by moving seat behind

Next up, tyres, but i'm waiting for a while on that.

Thanks again GTO, all your little pointers were also very helpful like removing the carpet, custom boombox, custom side fenders, etc

I do have a few more queries, but i will add them later on when i put up more pics.

I was outta town for a few days and the car is covered and tied down and the insurance guy has strictly warned me not to drive till the insurance is transferred (which is by tomo). Then i will uncover her and click pics.

You know what? Trammaway (Siva) covered almost all such places in India, so chances are slim . Now you know how valuable are those.

In fact it wasn't for me, i have a Jeep already.

Welcome to the world of Jeeps, you might have never experienced the same in your OHC

Same goes for my sedan and hatch as well, lol!!!

Hi Tejas you are one lucky guy for its a steal at 2.15lac. The condition of the jeep is really very good i dont think she has ever been taken offroading. Take good care of her she is a priceless beauty I think she must be the only really stock condition classic on BHP. Cheers man happy offroading.

Ya... a lot of questions are gonna come.

First set of questions:

I'm gonna go to chor bazaar one of these days, so what essential and rare parts should i look for and stock up like mirrors? Hose pipes, belts and all are freely available i guess.

Yep, she has never done offroading. 4x4 has never been engaged. I gotta get that checked first, if it is still working.

I suggest you drive her around for a few days and then start all you work, you will come to know all that is needed to be serviced like oil seals if gone hard might start leaking. Check up all oil levels before you do so.

tejas congrats on your classic. This is one heck of a find you've got there. It's in mint condition I must say, for a jeep that's 10 years old.

Congratulations on the Red Monster Tejas. You have indeed got hold of a fantastic piece. I couldn't believe I was seeing such a clean and immaculate Classic when we met the other day. Plus you got those aftermarket alloys as standard on it. i love your Jeep spare wheel cover.

Enjoy your Jeep experience and hope to see it again soon

Yup, already driven 150 kilometers. See the list of work i have planned to do. I think it's comprehensive for starters. Anything else you suggest?

Those alloys are OEM if i'm not mistaken. The wire rims were sold from 1996-1998 and then these were introduced (i think)

thanks. yes, i will retain her stock as much as possible.


More queries:
- anyone knows who make a good body cover? i plan to keep the car open and since i don't have an enclosed parking, i will need a body cover. Currently i am using a friend's scorpio body cover and it's too big and need to weight it down or it acts as a parachute and flies off.

- i need service and owners manual. can anyone scan and mail or photocopy and courier? i will collect courier + reimburse photocopying charges. plz.

Some people have all the luck in the world. There are a lot of people after the classic and one falls right into your lap, when you are looking for a Gypsy, after all !

A classic is one of my wet dreams, hence I will join the neighbor's envy club. But I wish you happy motoring and lots and lots of offroad adventures.

Please start prescribing more combiflam and upload them pictures !!!
