The blue one is a willys station wagon. and friends, Our Mahindras had bought out the old dies for this wagon from jeep, after they discontinued this wagon, with the intention to launch it in india!!! The project was subsequently shelved in 1968!! and the dies were discarded/scrapped.

Was offerd a Willys station Wagon a few years back for 55 grand. It was in good condition with all the things intact, even the orignal Willys wheelcaps were there. This family had 3 or 4 such jeeps in the family.Cant recollect their names, But remember the place they stay in Pune ( Fatima Nagar ) and in the parking lot of their building, remember seeing a small 2 seater Red car similar to a MG. Cant recollect as this was nearly 10 to 12 years back. Karl Any Idea ???

Price is always subjective, but I think Doc started off being reasonable. And he's got response for sure! Do ask him for an inventory of the spares also (I think he's advertised those too) and see you factor that in your cost, and more importantly check receipt of the exact listed items later. Maybe, the manual and spares should be despatched separately?

There's transportation cost, on top too; irritating bit that, not withstanding how cheap or dear (no puns, intended) the car herself is.

Straight from jaipur, I'd say, since she can head out to Mumbai from there more easily and then to Hyderabad. Although offloading at Pune, could be an option too and then driving down to Hyderabad from there. Jaipur to Pune, should be around 10-12K if you get a returning trailer.

Doc driving down to Delhi?! Never know, he might want one last fling in his family "heirloom"! Doubtfull still. In any case, straight from Jaipur would be a better option, I feel.

Ditto, I've sometimes decided in favour of a purchase just because of the manual, or original keys, or original tool-kit/jack, etc.

Mine is by T.P. Postlethwaite published by C. Arthur Pearson Limited, London. Here are a couple of scans of the book - the cover and an inside page illustrating the models:

Haven't got your PM, Ishaan. Maybe as a newbie that facility isn't available to me. Wonder if I can PM you? I'll make an attempt to. Otherwise, Karl has my number. Karl, could you oblige please?

You will have to give me more details on the red car.

Was the Wagon you were offered a metallic blue with white top? There was one in Pune with all original fittings including the wheelcaps that used to visit my neighbour often. It had an MRX regn. Once there was another similar model parked in the same place, a cream one with a maroon roof. Its possible the same people you mention were visiting.

Pls don't even DREAM of even considering the 62 merc.
Its Totally crappified! Matador engine... felt interiors and all the nonsense u can do to a car has been done on this.

Btw, i think even the year is wrong as the 200 series came out only in 1965!!

This ad has been on and off for months now. I also spotted at the car at this years Haig rally in Bombay. Seems fairly good for an easy restoration. Has all original bits inside like those hard to find ivory knobs, also a cool period radio and parcel shelf.

The ad mentions the price as 3.25 which I assume is 3.25 lakhs. Is the price alright?

Found this for sale and thought I should get down and talk to the broker who is selling it. Was given to understand that it is a 1975 model 2 owner car with of course a diesel engine. However he says that he could also have it fitted with the petrol engine that it came with. Hold on Stanher before you rush to see it. He is asking for a sum of 1.8 lakhs for this. Now lets hear what you folks have to say to this.

Wow, thats heavy! But 1975- it couldnt have been an original low-bonnet then but just a convert! Isnt worth that price!
