Not a Willys, but Dodge /Nissan Power Wagon perhaps.

Speedy bhai,

the vehicle is sans engine, sans green house, sans dashboard (might be kept away some where). I will ask if the same is available for sale.

i had posted some unclear pics of the same car earlier
this car is a single owner 1976 car imported in 1985 to kerala.
this was up for sale about 6months ago .It was in better shape then.the asking price was around 25000/- .
Now it seem something has hit it on the driver side door.(see the big dent).
requires full restoration.Not worth the trouble.see the TOYOTA CORONA single owner I had put pics some time ago.It is real car to own for TOYOTA enthusiasts!

It definitely does look like a Nissan as in a similar one that ex670c owns. Pics of which are here:

1995 Nissan 4W73 by VFJ - ex670c’s Photo Gallery - Team-BHP

On closer look it seems to be a tow truck, how appropriate, did not speedy mention he is looking for a truck to tow his cars?

Those images of closed Yezdi factory make me feel cry. How can they be so ruthless.

This 47/48 Buick sedan, now going in the ground, was spotted by Moralfibre. Car is apparently in litigation.

Abhi, do you recollect a similar Peugeot owned by a industrialist in Malabar hill, same colour but great condition? Driven by his wife. I believe that was for sale. Better that than this junk.

Thats not a Willy's i=unless you are speaking about the canvas topped jeep(?). This one is a Dodge Power Wagon.

But as of now, can we get a more detailed address of this location??

Default Chembur Golf course

I was at the golf course today and decided to try my luck in finding the jeep / pick-up area...No luck there..

However, I was able to spot 3 1/2 classics rotting away..(3 and a half as i'm not sure there is any Austin Healey left in the Austin Healey with motorcycle tires - Is that even a Healey???
I'll disclose the address only if someone discloses the jeep / pick up lot address

On second thoughts..Its in the compound bang opposite the club entrance

Upon some investigation - I found out that these vehicles are owned by a guy who gives them out for shootings (More like GAVE than Gives) - None of them seem to be in working condition.

All the cars are left open and with minimum security although everyone in the vicinity know the owner and are happy to tell you that he won't sell. Have his number if anyone wants to try their luck.
