Roplas Bodies and Hardtops for Mahindra Jeeps

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, International • TAGS: , .

The brochures below show brochures from Roplas, a manufacturer out of India that produced Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic  (FRP) aftermarket bodies for 91″, 101″, and 104.5″ Mahindra jeeps. These brochures were assembled by Mr. Rahul Ram Amin and shared via the Flat Fender Jeepers Association — FFJA group on Facebook. I’m surprise that none of these bodies made it to the US, at least I’ve never seen them, especially in the Pacific Northwest where fiberglass bodies were readily used.

This fascinating brochure shows a range of special-purpose jeep bodies produced by Roplas, including service vans, police bodies, and ambulance models:
