Default Custom Ford WWII Jeep in Coorg

Here's a Ford owned by my relative in Coorg. I'm no jeep expert, but this is a very interestingly customized vehicle. A head turner wherever it goes! Just thought some of you guys might find it interesting. Its located near my wife's place Kakkabe, so some of you guys might have spotted it around there as well.

It badly needs a restoration. from a purist point of view.

Its Dieselised and looks nice though, but FAAAAAAR from being a true Ford.

Also the steering wheel hub, looks like its made outta wood ?

Pavan - of course they are not purists and the jeep is intended to look this way.

Riju - Some kind of connectors from drip irrigation system i heard. just for kicks ! lol ! And yes, the steering hub is made of wood i think. This jeep has been this way for a few years now AFAIK.

Also, not all folks with jeeps in Coorg do off-roading like the city boys here They rent local jeeps to haul stuff during heavy rains etc., so their nice jeeps don't get screwed.

Thats a real shame.

BTW there are better ways of mounting lights.

Nidhi, it is really hideous.

Compared it with this beauty from around Madikeri.

Dude, he's not looking for any help, nor is this a restoration thread. Its just a jeep that exists - it was crazy looking so I posted here. I don't really care what he wants to do with it.

Those big things below the foglights look like industrial sirens being used as horns . If it really were horns imagine the state of the guy in front of this jeep who gets the taste of it .

Truly speaking the wooden steering hub ( i hope im right ) , wooden gun stand and auxillary fuel tank ( i hope im right again ) looks very bad.

hahaha!! i love it! only in coorg baby! dint miss the 'kuppi' between the seats. ant those are not industrial sirens, they are connectors used between irrigation pipes for pumping water through the estate.
guys cmon, this is an indication of the sense of humour we coorgs have, thats all.

(Here's a Ford owned by my relative in Coorg. I'm no jeep expert, but this is a very interestingly customized vehicle. A head turner wherever it goes!)

I am heart broken after seeing this Jeep. ( and the sense of humour of the owner, of course).

Must surely be head turner for whatever reasons.

NIP:There is already a thread on weird and wacky mod jobs, you should have posted the pics here instead of starting a new thread. ( no offences meant)
