    Default Toyota Jeep 1979 Model. Price? CNG?

    Hi,

    I am interested in knowing the price of a Toyota Jeep 1979 model that will soon be available at a military auction near Rawalpindi. In fact, there are 4 jeeps of the same model in auction and all are in running and good condition. How much it should cost? It is a petrol version.

    Secondly, is it possible to use CNG in this jeep? I know many people would raise eyebrows but according to some a combination of Petrol and CNG is better than Diesel.

    And last but not the least, is Toyota SUV better than the American Jeep?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Ashar

    Yes toyota fj40 is a mean machine specialy in its petrol engine. Please dont change it to diesel, the idea of cng is great it would consume a lot of gas but far more economical than petrol and secondly you can convert it to a beast with just touch of a button whenever you wish. Do let me know whenever you getit . Take care

    Hi

    Some people asked me about the auction and where it is taking place. For the information of all those interested, the auction will take place on 18 September, 2007 at Heavy Industries Taxila in its Head Office. They have the following 4x4s available:

    Toyota Jeep 1979 Hard Top
    Toyota Jeep 1979 Hard Top
    Toyota Jeep 1979 Soft Top
    Toyota Jeep 1979 Hard Top

    Suzuki SJ410 1989
    Suzuki SJ410 1989
    Suzuki SJ410 1989

    In all, there are 7 Jeeps (SUVs) and all are in running and good condition. I took my camera with me to have photographs but military guys are very strict now a days due to security concerns and they didn't allow me that. Otherwise, I could have posted pics here.

    Anyone can take part in the auction. There is no formal requirement. Just bring one third of the money with you, in case you are successful.

    I wish you good luck!

    Cheers,
    Ashar

    Hi Jeepaholic,

    I bought Suzuki SJ410 1989 model for Rs. 215,000. The amount also includes 15% General Sales Tax (about Rs. 30,000).

    As far the Toyota Jeeps are concerned, one of them went for Rs. 420,000 (including 15% sales tax) and the second for Rs. 375,000 (including 15% sales tax). I don't know about the other two Toyota Jeeps as I left after my purchase.

    As far the Suzuki Jeeps are concerned, one was recalled from the auction when it failed to fetch over Rs. 175,000. The second I bought at Rs. 215,000. The last one fetched Rs. 290,000.

    Cheers,
    Ashar

    Hi Jeepaholic,

    I agree with you. The prices of vehicles in the auctions (at least what I’ve observed so far) are inclined upwards. There can be two reasons. Many people from hilly areas give higher bids for 4x4s. They have commercial concerns and they are not bothered much about the price tag. The second group of people is from the NWFP who for different reasons like to buy the government auctioned vehicles at higher prices. I was lucky to get the Suzuki at a reasonable price, keeping in view its condition. I intend to invest some money over it i.e. changing the seats, engine overhaul, new color etc. I really wish to have sometime for off-road experience with you guys but time has become a scarce commodity for me, since I’ve come back to Pakistan. Though I’ll be with you in spirits!

    For OffRoad brother, the jeep is in hard top. I never witnessed a soft top Suzuki jeep auctioned by government.

    Cheers,
    Ashar
