Here is a Willys jeep that the seller says is restored to WW II condition. Adding a pick-axe, shovel and some number on the bonnet makes it fight the WW II.

Sir, what are you saying, lets be a bit serious here.

He's also added.

1) Vertical, side mounted Gun rack
2) Bucket Seats
3) Alloys

Now its 100% ready for the WWII. You can kill the enemy with it

As they say "LOOKS CAN KILL".

But that NUMBER PLATE is really unique.

Default Lucknow Chevrolet Impala

The Impala is in Lucknow with its original USA number plate, the street address in the listing should be correct. It was a direct import some time back , but never used locally .

Price - no comments

The car is in good shape .

Regards
Chauhan

It probably did cost the importer an arm and a leg in taxes which probably explains it.

Again reviewing some Vintage and Classic car advertisements:
-I have reached Indore and this one posted for selling a Landmaster makes me giggle :
Landmaster -Made In England, 1955 model, Diesel Engine, AC well maintain classic car - Indore - Cars - Vijay Nagar
The advt says it is fitted with a diesel and an AC. It consumes petrol and delivers 41 mpg as per the specifications posted by the advertiser ?? It is fitted with an Ambassador steering of the Contessa kind. The car has a clean bodyline though!
But the detailed description posted for this car matches word to word with the one I had posted for my Landmaster, fitted with the original side valve. Here are the technical specifications of my car posted on "My Garage" in this forum:
Scorpio (2009),Landmaster (1955),Maruti 800(1987), MY Threesome Also own a 1983 TVS 50,1990 Yamaha RX 100 and 2003 Honda Activa, all under my Tender Loving Care - anjan_c2007’s Photo Gallery - Team-BHP

- The next is this one to sell a 1952 low bonnet Willys jeep - nothing very unusual but for the fact that the CJ3B VDO speedos of the late 1950's to early 1960's seem to be doing the duty in some low bonnet jeeps. The jeep has no cushion on any of its seats:
jeep willys - Indore - Cars - R.N.T. Marg

-Moving to Hyderabad this 1948 Willys Bantam has quite distinct looks.The seller says its the only one of its kind in India:
willys bantam 1948 - Hyderabad - Cars - Mehdipatnam

-This one is for a 1972 Jeep CJ3B.Though quite in order, it says the International diesel engine fitted is quite smooth and runs quite well.The International diesel engine (MD2350)) is one of the noisiest, with the world's highest NVH levels ever (The Trabant is an exception). Having driven several thousands of kms on jeeps fitted with this engine,I have experienced that it even becomes difficult to talk to the one seated right next to you unless you SHOUT and talk! And the whole body pains, if your total travel distance is above 500 kms a day.

Jeep 1972 CJ3B Four wheel drive - Hyderabad - Cars - 0
