Nice buy, steal price, looks excellent.

I liked the flashing of headlights on seeing the other Jeep guy thing

Patience has its own virtues.

A great find and an awesome buy Tejas. I have come to understand that there is no fixed market price for SWB except that they are upwards. You have nevertheless got it for a song.

I was in a similar dilema a while back, I posted the pictures here and then there was no looking back or racking my brains. The stalwarts here are selfless when it comes to helping you on a purchase. In fact now I am planning on another Classic buy. The prices are very scary.

All the best and happy Jeepin'.

Great Tejas, big congrats. All those who want to buy Classics should start searching for gypsy.. If Tejas wouldn't have called for gypsy he would have never come across this beauty. SWB is so much fun, enjoy..

hey. Your thread has been very useful for me. and whomever i spoke to has used your car as a benchmark! congrats!

Do you have the user's manual and a service manual?

The doors, soft-top and frames are very much there in pristine condition. As of now, they are lying safely packed and wrapped in a friend's garage.

Did a lot of spares shopping. More updates soon.

Doc, thanks a lot for your kind words. You have now got yourself an equally good piece.

I am removing my original soft top and doors for safe keeping too. Whilst you are shopping please do keep your eyes open for a new soft top for me. I know its hard to come by, yet you can never say.

Thanks in advance and congrats on the brilliant buy.

i'm planning to get one of these made for my jeep. I'm thinking of putting a small black motorcycle side mounted storage box fitted on the rear door behind the spare wheel from inside. I can store the cover there and it will be easier to pull it over the car. the full body cover is too much of a hassle. What say guys? feasable?
My sofawala guy is coming on sunday to take measurements. Any suggestions before that. I plan to secure it to the vehicle using velcro straps.

Congratulations Tejas on your purchase. It surely has been a steal. I normally don't comment on Jeep threads as I have no experience with them but I realy envy your luck and more then that, the passion that you have in you, wherein you dint bother about the appointments while cancelling them. Surely you deserve this classic.

Fantastic buy doc. Now can we call you Doc4X4? Welcome to this ever growing club of 4X4 addicts. Now we have one more Mumbai Jeep on OTRs.

By the way your Jeep looks squeaky clean. Great find and buy!!

Went for my first OTR. Tyres definitely need to be upgraded.

Pics are here:

The rusted nut holding the windshield broke when i took it down. Thankfully allan's workshop was at hand and he got it fixed pronto. I guess the windshield was never taken down ever.
