That's a great question. And it's a question that I don't have an answer to!

Experts, please throw some light on this?!

But as prince_pervez said, it looks unfinished. And in fact, it is unfinished!

Attachment 291294

EDIT: Scorcher: Wow, didn't think of it like that! It does indeed look like it has been inspired by a Red Bull can!

Also, notice that when you look at it from the back, it doesn't prepare you for what it looks like from the side!
The finish is Indeed very good on the car. Infact the Garage there does a pretty good job of painting. And the Zen is not that weird. But that insert on the bumpers are.

And as for the color they will not mention on the Registration book. And RTO dosen't bother about color change, infact many vehicles run with their engine number changed .

Quality of the paint job (according to the pics) -

Choice of the blue hue and pattern -

As long as the car is out of attention of the RTO (sometimes at check posts) or not involved in an accident - "Aaal ij well!" (Sorry mods, couldn't resist that. Apologies!) Otherwise, his troubles would have just begun.

If that is really a 3A.. its a typical example of how to kill a Jeep... A true classic one at that...(no reference to the Classic) and I thought people died to get their hands on a low bonnet. But are you sure its a 3A cuz my limited knowledge tells me the last 3As were made in the 50s.. 52-53 to be specific? and the Jeep in question also happens to be a RHD

The Jeep looks pretty decent! Apart from the spare wheel I don't find anything wrong with it.

If it's a 1972, then why is the fuel tank at the rear. It should be under the left seat.

The finish is pretty good! And the car is definitely not weird in any way! I just thought that it's wacky, that's all! It's out of the ordinary and when something doesn't seem 'normal', it's got to be wacky!
