I'm not doubting the fact that you have a CJ3B with a number 3 on it, but you are probably mistaken to think that the jeep in these pictures is yours.

rehaan i never said V-16 said it was my jeep. its like telling you you dont recognise your car in a parking lot. i dont doubt the fact that there will not be another cj3b with a split windscreen in the country i'm sure there would be but i know my cars when i see them.
it is no point going on and on with the same thing and wasteing space, if anyone has a doubt and if you do have free time on your hands and since you are in bom i'm not, so i could organise your visiting my garage to see the jeep. would ask V-16 if he is free to take you there.

There is some advice on buying military vehicles on the following site/forum :

Indians For Guns - 1962 CJ3B restoration advice - petrol or diesel engine?

Quote:
Is an army disposal vehicle worth the hassle? Well, if you are going in for a CJ3B, then most certainly.... the buggers had jacked up the prices for a short time (during the time I got mine) but I believe the MLA/ MP rate is now back to 28k or so... Just keep a couple of things in mind when picking out the vehicle from the Central Vehicles Depot, Delhi (which is where I imagine you'll be getting it from) :-

a) "THE MAN" is that chap in dirty overalls who walks out with you while you "select" your vehicle! He KNOWS which one is a lemon and which one was an honest to god "Staff car"/ "Parade vehicle" - obviously a true blue forward base Jeep which has been rogered by one and all is something you would not want...

b) Be nice to him - it helps both in picking out a mechanically better vehicle as well as getting him to ensure that small bits and bobs of original kit are miraculously complete when you come to pick it up... in stead of being "lost in transit".

c) Avoid buying parts from Mayapuri unless it's absolutely imperative - they are almost always "duplicate" and can screw up your vehicle... Hunting through the automotive parts market next to Kashmiri gate, though painful, will ensure that you get the proper part... Those guys will almost always tell you before the sale if the part it a copy or the real Mc coy!

d) If you want to source an original CJ3B petrol engine to replace the current diesel one - besides Mayapuri also consider making a trip to Dabwali in Haryana. This is probably the single largest Jeep rebuilding/ reconditioning operation in the world. A large part of the town's economy is based around this trade and since almost everyone throws out the petrol engine and replace it with a diesel, these should be easy to source and pretty cheap to buy. Dabwali would also be a good source for procuring all types of original military issue Jeep "kit"... The single hardest part of kit to get these days of course are the original "gun mounts" that used to come on army Jeeps earlier...
