Mahindra Jeep International the Ride I Love and Die For
(Vasco Goa India)
To some it's just an off road mode of transport while to others like me it's a religion. I am a proud owner of a Mahindra Jeep International. Though I'm the third owner that doesn't fade off the craze for my ride.
I picked it up from a saw mill owner. It was an 1980 model with lots of shedding skin. The only best part the jeep had at that time was its engine while all the rest needed desperate rejuvenation.
'Restoring' the 'ride' are two nice words, but they bring along with them huge trouble, especially if you don't have the resources.
It took me 28 months to restore my ride with a new body, repair the chassis, overhaul the engine, fixing the electrical, the seats, tires, paint job and of course making it road worthy for the R.T.A. (Road Transport Authority) in India.
My ride now proudly sits in my garage with a brand new "Classic" look restored to its mint condition. It does give me company with my friends, or may be just along the country.
It fires in half crank and has never troubled me to date.Larry's Comment: Still amazes me how much these Mahindra Jeeps are modeled after the old U.S.A. Willys CJ3B (1953-1964).
