Thanks guys. Yes there were many frustrating moments while rebuilding the Jeep over a 4 month duration. Parts availability, paint delay, electricals...not to mention the financials went totally over budget. I was this close to abandoning the project but a mental glimpse of the completed product made me push on.

I am glad I did. Never expected such a superb looking and absolutely reliable Jeep.

Man GTo, that a great vehicle, i just read all about it.
Not only that, you have taken it to the roads and trails where it can be done real justice
Always longer for a open top, drop shield willys since i was in school,
But was put of by the what i considered the apparent impracticality of having an Open jeep in Bombay - mainly the heat and dust,
But after reading your posts here, am again pining to own one.
Maybe in a year or so i just may think about it.
WIll be banging on your door for advice and ideas if do get there!!
Here's hoping.
And congratulations ofn a fantastic vehicle
cheers

Default Classic Review

Great review and I am jealous. I worked at Mahindra Nashik in the R&D dept. and I used to go to the assembly line everyday to admire the Mahindra Classic, which were then produced only for exports. I have always loved the Mahindra Classic and hope to get hold of one some day.

Cool pix and write up GTO.

I had been looking out for Classic few months back, and was extremely pissed off at the lack of its availability in the seconds market.

:(

How does one get hold of one? in Bombay or Pune

Well, they never sold too many when new so availability of used Classics was bound to be a problem. Considering that these Jeeps age fast (rust etc.) and that its been a decade since production stopped, a large number of Classics have already been scrapped.

You can try searching around but it will be very difficult to procure a running Classic now.

pretty neat writing...n one hell of a car....i had always thought that the classic would be a strict no no for cities like delhi/mumbai, each with its share of dirt, pollution and others......but hats off to u for sticking to it....
