I owned an old '70s Mahindra in New Zealand. It's now part of an Army Vehicle collection, and has been painted to look like a US army jeep.

I also traveled on one in Africa while helping track lions on a research project. This one was a lot newer model truck type fitted with seats in the back.

Larry's Comment: Tracking lions in Africa...that sounds interesting.

And the elephants in the second photo look a little perturbed. It looks like you and your crew are high-tailing it out of there..ha!

Also, forgive my Mahindra ignorance, but generally what model and year Mahindra is the pickup truck in the photos?

In the 1970s I worked at a Nissan assembly plant in Auckland, New Zealand. About 6 of our truck assemblers left to assemble Mahindra "Beavers"/ jeeps. I don't know how many were imported but they did not survive very long.

Mahindra Jeeps are still sold new in New Zealand

Can't be road registered as it has no airbags, etc.
