looks like a 12/4. I suppose 'clifton' is austin's nomenclature for this bodystyle.

Never actually saw it but hear of this from many people. Also about a SS100 Jag in Poona which had Amby wheels.

Oh yeah, heard so many stories Wasif, dont know what to believe.

Regarding the SS100 Jag maybe it is a case of Chinese whispers. I know for sure and have seen it too, a Maserati at the Bombay Customs auction with Ambi rims fitted and it was bought by a Poona collector. There is a long story to it, told elsewhere on the forum so ill save the details. My guess is that the story of this car got around to so many people that the car became a Jag from a Maserati

Then again maybe there is a Jag with Ambi rims?? Who knows!!

Yup.

One never knows what will actually turn up till it does. I remember hearing about the Jag I have from a lot of guys, nobody actually could pinpoint the location.

We went around walking thru the area that was most often said to be the right area but after a long and tireless search didn't come up with anything.

So we stopped next to a house in some shade and had a smoke while discussing our options. This guy with us swore it was close but couldn't find it.

So we diecide to give up and go home. I droped my cigarettes and bent down to pick them up.On looking up I was peeking into a cellar through a vent and there was the Jag in one corner.

Isn't that some luck !!

Seems like I'd like to own one, since we had one in the family from '52 to '57 when we sold it and upgraded to a '56 Kingsway. My Grandfather did 2 all India road trips in the Fluid drive in that period!! Why we sold her off, well my Grandfather never used a car for more than 5 years! so we did not retain any old car.
I have the same car in white and in much better shape. My interiors have been restored to their orignal glory too. I got offered 7 lacs for it even though i'm not a seller.

My cousin just bought a 46 Dodge Custom in mumbai for 4 lacs. Needs a paint job but very orignal car. So i guess that should be an indicative price.

Did too. Unfortuantely in those days I was a card carrying member of the"More money than brains club".

Car was great, complete but in need of a full resto. After taking it apart I learned that it was a job way beyond my capabilities and then I had to leave India so its still to be completed.

I doubt it, although when I was following it up for someone, I was told that it was already sold.

IMO 3.25 Lacs for an Indian RHD CJ3B is way too much. One could get a Low-Bonnet Willys MB or Ford Jeep at this price. However, it is possible that the owner has spent a lot and hence wants a fancy price.

Regarding this particular Jeep, it is a CJ3B made by Mahindra (mostly an army disposal one). The accessories(mostly fabricated) on this CJ3B are an overkill and not all were available on any model. But the execution of the restoration is quite good. The interiors have been very neatly done. Interesting to see the 'T' shaped thingy that are present in Jeeps used in Parades.
