hi guys,
check out this vintage jeep . it is fully restored with the origional petrol engine. Modifications include those awesome tyres. the wheels would not fit after the tyres were mounted so the hubs had to be CAST specially for the same.This jeep belonged to the same friend of mine who had the red mahindra.Observe the photo carefully and u will see it parked in between those two people talking( check out the red mahindra in Modified m &m).the other mods are the custom bumper and luggage rack.

Images are slightly blurred, but, gr8 to see ppl restoring jeeps. I think these pics would make GTO very happy coz its yet another restored Jeep.
I love jeeps and when i have some money and more importantly time i would love to restore one by myself.

Default Vintage & Classic cars in India.

Hi guys. I am a Chennaite and have been into Vintage and Classic cars for a long while. Have been photographing cars over last 20 years. I finally decided to share the pics and uploaded the lot to the following webpage. www.zorpia.com/xoticars

At some point I would like to upload the lot onto this site too. Takes too much time though. Hey, who ever wishes to share pics with me, may also email me at xoticars@yahoo.com. Hope you guys enjoy the pics I have uploaded. -Xoticars.

Didn't want to start a new thread on this.
Spotted this extremely well maintained Jeep in a Nainital car park. Clicked it for T-BHP Jeep enthusiasts ...

This Mahindra CJ-3B bearing Uttaranchal plates "UA 06 A 5761" is painted a nice desert khaki color. The number plate should have been white not khaki which is mildly illegal.

The rope wound around the front bumper is kinda cute.

It has the wiper spindles in cowl rather than on the windshield, so it's not an original Willys but a local Mahindra.

It has Indian Army blackout lights, headlamp guards and radiator stone-guard.

The full-floating front hub and coverplate as well as the semi-floating rear hub grease cap have been painted red, Indian Army style. And the chassis and axles are all painted the same desert khaki.

But it's a poser. A two-wheel-drive, wearing 15-inch Maruti Gypsy wheel rims and Millennium 235/70R15 all-terrain tires. The balance weights and wheel nuts have been painted over.

Default Indian Army JEEP CJ3B-4

Nice looking JEEP,
The Radiator Brush/Chaff Guard - Belongs to a Mahindra pikup type.
The CJ3B never had U nothches for Hood/Bonnet Release Clip.
Also they never had Hood/Bonnet Release Clips.

The Indian Army Blackout Lights were introduced post 1974? made by HELLA.....and a few other companies.

The Wiper Spindles on the cowl Indicate thats its post 1987 CJ3B-4 (M&M Nomenclature for the Petrol CJ3B)

The Headlight Guards are similar to the CLASSIC and the new MM540, but as the space between the grilles is wider it belongs to an Army RCL JEEP post 1985.

It is missing the Front Indicator Lights Guard, 5lts Oil/Water Can & Holder - Behind left Fender/Mudguard. (LHS for RCL JEEP) 20lts Jerry Can & Holder(RHS for RCL JEEP)

For some pics of INDIAN MILITARY JEEPS - Mahindra Military Jeeps on The CJ3B Page
