Default Where to buy Willys in Bangalore?

Hey guys,

I'm finally ready to buy a Willys. Have been dreaming about it for a couple of years. Could some of you give me some leads as to where I can start looking? I'd ideally like a low bonnet, short chassis diesel. Please let me know.

Join the 'jeep_thrills' yahoo group and you will get good pointers. Many a jeep_thrills member are also T-BHPians, so you can expect good response here also.

Like with most rare / out of production cars, you will have to expand your search to other cities. If you find one in Bangalore, you are lucky. Buying a car from another state will entail extra work (paperwork & transport), but I guess its a small price to pay for a good example.

Look around in classified ads and online resources (including Team-BHP of course!). Good luck with the search.

Hi aaragon,

With my limited knowledge I can tell you that the low bonnet Jeeps from Willys were Willys MB, CJ2A & CJ3A.

All these JEEPs came with the L134 ( Go Devil ) Petrol engine. Its rare to find these machines in their original condition.

You can contact a JEEP enthusiast Mr. Uday Bhan Singh from Howrah who is an avid collecter and restorer of these wonderful machines. He can help you in finding one of these.

cheers
