Default Hindustan 10 modded into a pickup-truck.

Anyone passing by Team-Motor Works in Santacruz will notice this Hindustan 10 moded into a pickup truck. The car has been moded by Team-Motor Works. I guess its been used as a breakdown truck.

WOW !

It would break my heart if this creation is being used as a break down truck!

Default Great!!

Excellent effort! And it shows...
But doesn't the loading area look too small? Maybe they could've elongated the chassis, dunno if it's possible with this vehicle, though.

This Hindustan 10 was under its restoration process last time I visited Suraj of TMW. Looks like its completed now. Good effort there

I dont think the vehicle is meant to carry any load - its created to look like a not so bad replica of the classic Chevy pickups favoured by rednecks and the Klan

Nice way to get almost every damn thing out of the Pickup-truck...the front grill could have been made bit more appealing(not that this one isnt appealing...). It looks like the truck that comes in the cartoon "Noddy" ,the graphix sit the vehicle,nice combo... the paint job makes the truck look rather small...thay should've lengthened the wheelbase a bit.

Good job; but they shouldnt have modded the front end...it looks like they have done it in FRP. I would've preferred the original and also a black car with yellow flames.

The wood runners on the bed are a nice touch though.

Thats a very good effort and it looks very attractive especially the paint job, but think they could have worked a bit more on the front.

Agreed, the front bumper looks a little out of proportion, could have been better with a metal bumper for the original look.

i think its a great effort ! looks like one out of a "desi pimp my ride" style ! btw i agree with the front bumper ... some chrome effect would bring out the clasic look.

Safe.

Now that's one good looking Hindustan pick-up.Could be even better with:
1.15" or 16" alloys with wide rubber
2.A black or darker shade of blue with more gloss.
3.The standard front end,albeit a bit more PIMP.
4.And last but not least ditch those cheap chinese m/cycle mirrors!
