Found this lovely looking low bonnet "JEEP"- somehow a jeep badging for a low bonnet does not connect any loose wires in my brain.

I've so far thought low bonnets only came in Fords and Willy's, but a JEEP

Anyone who can shed a light on this.

Pavan,

Quite simple- its a low bonnet (most likely Ford) fitted with a Jeep tail-gate!

Uh, is it for sale??

Well I dont know about MBs (which this jeep sure looks like) but the early models of the CJ2A had brass plates on the bonnet and windscreen with "JEEP" stamped on them. Later models had "JEEP" stamped on the same places on the body itself so im guessing that the mbs too had "JEEP" stamped sin the pic but im not sure.
The interior dash ahs a couple of things missing like the light that lit the meters as the MB meters had no internal light.
Jeep Gurus, could you shed some light on this?

Only the early (1942) MBs and GPWs had their respective names
stampled on the rear for a short period. This was discontinued subsequently in end 1942, as the US Government did not permit both Willys and Ford to stamp their names as these vehicles were made under Government contracts for the War. However the data plates in the dashboard has either the 'Ford' or 'Willys' in them. Willys registered their name after the war and the civilian models which came out, starting with CJ2's had the 'Willys' stamping on both sides of the bonnet and the Tailgate (The MBs & GPWs had no tailgates).
When Kaiser took over Willys Overland they registered the 'Jeep' name.Hence one will find the later jeeps with the 'Jeep' logo.
The '42 jeeps with the names stamped are rare and hence referred to as "Script" jeeps. Posting some pics of the script in my '42 'Script' GPW.

A Ford Mustang 1966 garaged in a kerosene warehouse about thirty years ago probably due to non availibility of parts for repair, was discovered and taken out a couple of months back. Some interesting pictures. Unbeleavable ????

Yes guys this really is a super car and is now in safe hands. It is part of the Titus Collection in Delhi. I hear that the car is so original that it still has all its original Decals. Had hardly been driven couple of thousand kms. Has the original upholstery, trims, badges etc.

Also hear it is now completely washed, oiled, fuelled and couple of new parts here and there and is roaring like a Mustang Should.

Also had all the original RC books, papers, manual etc. Will get an opportunity to see this vehicle in my next trip to Delhi and will surely click pictures and send to all (ofcourse with owners permission)

Wow, intriguing to know that a car- that too an imported one- that has been lying in such a state for 20 years is still solid and complete! 'cant wait to see it in its restored state.
Incidentally, I used to be crazy about the early mustangs when I was a kid, ever since I saw the pic. of one in my first book on classic cars bought by my dad!
