Mahindra - Willys/M38a1 Jeep MOT Until 17th Sept 2014 and Taxed till end July 2014   I have to admit that I've had enough of eBay. well not particularly eBay. but those bidders that bid and win an item. then change their minds! This is the 3rd time that I've tried to sell my Jeep on eBay. after the winning bidder changed their mind the last time it was listed. So please. please. please only bid if you're serious about buying - I'm more than happy for you to view and test drive before auction end. Now that I've got all that out of the way. here's the listing details: You are bidding on this fantastic CJ-7 Jeep Marksman (Mahindra MM540) which has been converted to look like a 1950's Willys/M38a1 Jeep   Features include: 2. 5 Peugeot Diesel Engine (Original 2. 1L replaced during re-build) Full top down re-build undertaken 4 years ago 5 x CJ 16" Wheels & 5 x Ex MOD 7. 5 Tyres (With hardly any use) Description This was a Hard-top. as you can see from the "Pre-Conversion" pics below. but I've converted her into a military/M38a1 Willys style Jeep from the 1950's - A lot of time. effort and costs have gone into this conversion. the work included: Chopping the hard-top 5 x CJ Wheels & 5 x ex-MOD Tyre Sanding down and repainting to 'Olive' Green (Hand painted) Willys Jeep Wing Mirrors & Gear knob Removal of original seats and replaced with Willys Jeep front and rear seats & Willys Seat Cushions Chopping rear of Jeep and moving spare wheel carrier Soft-Top Land Rover style roof added. using Land Rover series frame and Canvas hood Purchasing and adding Jerry can. Jerry-can holder & Strap New break seals and break cylinders Storage/tool box bolted to rear of Jeep Seat belt added to rear   In summary. I've spent well over £1. 00 and very many hours on her during the past two years of ownership. with the wheels and MOD tyres alone costing £500!!! The Jeep also benefited from a bottom-up rebuild around four years ago. this included taking the body. engine off (and replaced with better 2. 5L one) and sandblasting the chassis. before stripping down. cleaning everything and replacing it all together. Again some pictures from the original re-build are included at the end I chopped the original doors off and have put these back on for Winter. they are fixed. but can be removed in a few mins for summer driving (Single Long Bolt hold them in place - 1st pic above showing Jeep without doors). I find that the doors do cut down on the amount of cold wind coming in through the side. The Jeep also has a heater. which allows a small amount of warm air in around your feet! I also have a pair of Canvas doors with a metal frame which I will also include - they were not made for this jeep. but it wouldn't take to much work to fit them Jeep also has a few spare parts etc. which I will also include in the auction During the last few weeks I've also created a canvas roof for her. which can be seen fitted below - I've driven her at 60MPH and roof was fine (Very noisy though - I tend to use earplugs on the Motorway) Engine runs well. with only a small tiny oil leak. which is fairly normal for an old diesel. it smokes a little when cold. but can motor all day at a steady 50mph. Please remember that the Jeep is 22+ years old. is very basic. and very. very noisy. Suspension is Leaf sprung. so she bounces around the road a little. but is great fun to drive and you'll always have a smile on your face when driving. Please. please. please do not expect a perfect and modern drive/journey & comfort. Gears all work well (4 speed + reverse). with the 4WD and High/Low ratio also working (Video below shows them in action) As the re-build was only a few years ago. then the body and chassis are in really good condition. with no rust points! The body as usual for a car of this age. does have some small dings here and there. but nothing serious (See pics of underside and wheel arches) She also comes with tow hitch and working electrics Original Willys Jeeps and M38a1's are going for £12. 00+ So this is a perfect opportunity to get the same look. with a better ride for a fraction of the price. and you also get a diesel engine. so better economy (I get around 30mpg) MOT till Sept 2014 and Car Tax runs out at the end of July 2014 - so again. all you'll need to do is add some insurance (I currently pay around £130 fully comp for a year with limited mileage of 1500 miles) We've just had 4 days without rain. so I've driven her a few times and you certainly get plenty of admiring looks! I think that's about it for now. although I may have missed a few items - please drop me a question and I'd be happy for you to come and view/test drive before selling. but please not time wasters! JEEP IS SOLD AS SEEN. WITH NO WARRANTY OFFERED The Jeep is also advertised locally Oh yes. one more thing. I will not delivery to a port in the UK. I will not swap with anything else! Photographs & Videos: Please take a detailed look at the photographs. this auction is "Sold As Seen" and I will not accept returns. so make sure you ask your questions now - I am also more than happy to take and email you any additional photographs on request

Payment £100 via Paypal within three days of auction end - remainder as "Cash on Collection" Pick-Up Please contact me to arrange pick-up of Jeep. I've driven this on M-Way at a steady 60mph (noisy though). and it'll travel like this all day long. you may also want to look at perhaps hiring a trailer though if you've got a very long journey Low Feedback Anybody with five feedback or less. please contact me before bidding or I will cancel your bids - I am sorry about this. but I have been messed around too many times by time-wasters Questions Please come and ask me questions. any questions. I can take more pics if you like and send them to you. This auction is sold 'As Seen' so please. don't turn up on the day and change your mind! Perhaps it may be better to come and see it first if you can! Good luck!
