On the exterior the hood of the 413 has a little muscle and the grille is different with mesh and rounded head lamps.
The bonnet is also different. The 1.3 engine is taller than the 1.0 engine. The old gypsy was a 4 speed 4x4 whereas the King is a 5 speed 4x4.

Sorry but with "hood" i meant bonnet. And with "little muscle" i meant the hump or whatever you might call it for the same reason that you mentioned, taller engine.

@Ricky

BTW i did try and find a few pics of the Samurai(Gypsy in other Asian markets) and the Gypsy looks damn good modded in its own lines.
Maybe thats what rmonie's gypsy would turn out like(the gypsy being modded at Arush's workshop)

When is the Gypsy being completed ?? Looking forward to some detailed pictures, and a proper writeup.

By the way where is your thread on rmonie's Gypsy ? Vanished ? WHY ?

So are you going in for the Turbo ?




Cheers

You are actually right but there is more to it.
Well as far as my knowledge can trace back to a doccumentary on Discovery channel. The muscle started with Corvette comming out with a huge V8 back in the 70-80s(dont remember). The size of the engine hindered the design of the bonnet so they created a bulge in the bonnet to accomodate the big engine, In the process they got a very attractive and powerful look to the car and overall desing/stance to the vehicle, soon other American carmakers followed and hence the name - "American Muscle cars".
BIG POWERFUL PURE THROUGHBRED NA ENGINES. Just love them.
Sorry was off topic.

They are fast and ride/handle wayyyyy better than the Gypsy.

Parts are easy to source and any good mechanic can maintain it easily.

Really? Where? I`d really like to get my hands on one of those.
