Dream come true!

Welcome Jeepers!

Here is my dream come true! Now I own a Mahindra Classic alias CL340 DP 4WD. One of the precious and ever wanted JEEP from Mahindra & Mahindra. This Jeep is made upon Willys CJ3B platform with some latest addons.

Though the Classic's production started during 1996, M&M got to stop the Classic line of production with in a shortwhile on 2000. Hence very few of these Gems are available on the road on the market. Hence getting this jeep is a real challenge for many. I was searching for this jeep for more than 4 years and found one in a wreck condition. This whole blog is our restoration of my Mahindra classic Jeep.

Hi Abi and Ranjit,

Thanks for your words. By the way I'm from Velachery in Chennai. However the Jeep's hospital is in Tiruvannamalai where the whole treatment is undergoing.
