The wish is to spec it something similar to a Camel Trophy Land Rover, but without changing the bodyline of the Jonga (i.e., Nissan Patrol G60).

I intend retaining the original 4L 6 Cylinder engine and the transmission. The wheels and the tyres will definitely be upgraded. A good example that I might want to follow is Mike Warner's safari-equipped 1967 Nissan Patrol, though the colour might be slightly subdued. (Picture courtesy Hybrid Jeep Photos on The CJ3B Page)

The specs are still evolving and I would welcome suggestions. I intend doing the restoration over the next 4 -6 months.

Regards

Jaskirat

Congratulations!! jaskirat for the beast you brought, are you planning to take up the restoration work first or would like to start and drive the Jonga. Ah! my dream machine MM550's are just waiting for a real Jeep lovers. The pic you have posted in your last thread (yellow and black) is it a Jonga or a Nissan? I could read Jonga on the bonnet. Are you planning to do the same way, it would be quite intresting and I promise I am here on this thread to witness a Beast evolving into a Dream machine. all the best.

Hi Chanu,

'JONGA' was the name (an acronym for Jabalpur Ordance and Gun Assembly) given to Nissan Patrol G60 by the Indian Army. The vehicle in the picture is a Nissan Patrol G60 based in Australia.

@ Jaskirat,
Congrats on the purchase of INDIAN HUMVEE.

You have got a very decent JONGA from auction & as per the number plate its just 13 yrs old, thats what it makes this JONGA different from other JONGA's that I have seen & also see the devnagri JONGA logo on bonnet which is very rare to find.
I have complete scanned manual of Nissan P60 that is known as JONGA in India. Please PM me your e-mail ID & also mobile number so that I can send you the manual by e-mail.

Are you planning to come up with the same kind of outcome as in the picture. As I feel it would be one of a kind restoration rather makeover and I presume if so yours would be the first JONGA to get the make over.

Jaskrit would you be using this Beast for off roading or will that be for a long drives? I am very eager to follow this thread since the Rover Restoration done her sometimes ago. Before that can we have some photoshoot of you JONGA at the current stage. Please.

First glimpse of your JONGA gave me a feel of a ROVER so I called it a INDIAN ROVER

Will be glued to this thread.
As you rightly said, the Jonga was in a far better condition compared to the MM550s.

i must say, look at the pool of MM550s lying around in the photos!
Parm, I'll share the full story in the next few days. As for the pool of MM550s, there were atleast 30-35 Jeeps at the Depot. Many of them were is fairly decent condition

Hopefully there will be some enthusiasts for the MM550s, but I doubt if all the 30 - 35 that were there will hit the road again

Hi Spike, I am not sure what you mean by NGCS. What does this acronym stand for?

This Jonga has a 6 Cylinder 4L in-line Petrol Engine that produces 110bhp at 3200 RPM and 26.9kgm Torque at 1200 RPM

Its a Nice buy.
it looks like its a 97 Model,probably,the last one's to be manufactured.
Whats under the hood? the 6 Cylinder motor?
I was looking for a 1 T, but now that I have this Jonga I will probably give the 1 Ton a miss.

Did you check the engine and drive line ? I liked the current color scheme as well. You are one lucky person.
Incidently, after taking delivery on August 12, 2010, I towed it back from Jallandhar to Chandigarh. At about 4PM today, after having cleaned the distributor, carburettor, getting the armature of the starter rewound, replacing the spark plugs and the distributor cables, putting in a new battery, I started the old fellow. The engine came to life in just a couple of attempts, and it seems to be in a pretty good condition.

I shall be working on the brakes and differential (rear) tomorrow and hopefully take it for a spin in next couple of days. The front differential will follow later as the front drive shaft was disconnected for some reason.

As I mentioned above, I intend taking the old fellow for a spin and maybe drive it for a couple of weeks before commencing the restoration. This way I will get to know what all needs to be done and in what sequence.

The landed cost of the Jonga was Rs. 74,000, which includes the bid price, the taxes, ECS to MSTC, transportation from Jallandhar, and charges for registering with to MSTC to bid.

I believe there are other enthusiasts before me who have done up their Jonga, and that too very well. One of them is Abhilash Nambiar who has website called myjonga.com

I intend using the vehicle for weekends, and largely for off road drives. I have posted the first pictures of the Jonga along with my first post. I shall be sending in more pictures / videos as the restoration progresses. INDIAN ROVER sounds good, but JONGA PATROL sounds better.

congrats jaskirat,
that's a really good buy, looking forward to the restoration.
may i suggest that you capture the major steps in the restoration process on video if possible.
it would really be a treat for anyone who loves these icons, but then again that's just a thought.
good luck with the restoration.

NGCS- New generation chassis & suspension systems. I wanted to know if the 550s were from the latest versions.

Spike, some of the MM550s were 2004 model. So these could be NGCS, but I am not sure.

NGCS was introduced in 1998 in civilian vehicles. Not sure about Military vehicles.
