LHD Suzuki Gypsy/Jimmy
Here are some pictures of a rare LHD gypsy/ jimmy. Notice the original short Wheelbase and the original wheels. I soo want this car. Infact i am going to ask if it is for sale.
Anyone knows about the engine in this car? It appears to be a normal gypsy otherwise. And If i buy it, Will i be able to get LHD spares??

no not a JimNy!
Its a samurai SJ410. there is a bleak chance of being a SJ413. same, as maruti name them MG410 and 413 for gypsy
its holds the current title for ataining highest altitude by a 4x4.

that's a nice find
i don't think spares will be an issue, everything from the gypsy will fit apart from some things like the steering linkages/ tie rods, rear propeller shaft and brake lines.
the sj410 is identical to the mg410, bar a few country specific changes made to the carburettor, exhaust system, etc.
this should be a fun project. pick it up if you can.

mmmm.. nice find cyrus.. but looks abused/neglected... the Short Wheel base looks awesome on a Gypsy..
Infact, I was about to start a project for shortening the length of my gypsy by removing the "rear overhang" from the rear wheel onwards. Had even talked to a mechanic, done all the prep work and was mentally prepared also -- but somehow it got delayed and then I dropped the idea....

Thats a beautiful jeep, pick it up man.
There is someone here who has already done that & the Gypsy looks mean.

hope that you have not picked it up.
What does this one have which our Gypsy doesn't other that the SWB?
Its a very abused vehicle. And the amount of patch work in it is quiet high.
Yeah it will be a very interesting project. But tough one.
Outsourcing parts will be as hard as that for 86's japan engined gypsies.
If you are a man collecting unique set of wheels, it makes sense.
As a day to day use one or as even as a second vehicle, this 1 wont make any sense
