Default Wanted: Mahindra MM540 or similar 4X4 - Overland Yeti Yacht Procured

As the title suggests, I'm looking for a 4X4, preferably a MM540 or an MM550. If anyone has one for sale, kindly PM me

Kindly refrain from ruining this thread by asking questions like Arrey sam bhai why? What will you do? Are you mad etc. lol

I just want an MM540. I don't fit very well in a smaller jeep. I wish to make it all hot. Military style. Thanks again.

Edit: I don't want a closed hard top. Soft Canvas, or topless will do nicely.

Sam, the classic is much smaller than the MM540. I thought you distinctly said MM540??

I know, however if I do get a good classic/340, I am open to the idea. My preference is the 540.

If you get your backside down to Punjab, then you will be suitably rewarded.
A Willy will do real nice.

No, c3po this is not JBL work. This is for me. Personal. I want to drive around on Sundays with the wind in my hair. No ICE at all for this ride.



I want something that looks like the one on the right. And I do not have the time nor inclination to run to a mechanic every week.

I will be very obliged for any help and leads. I understand that BHPians in Kerala and in Punjab have more access to such things than us in Bombay. If someone knows of a good deal, I shall come there and buy it.
