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:

RLT Development’s Husky R.V. Jeep Kit

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Unique Jeeps, Unusual • TAGS: , .

UPDATE III: Robert’s RLT Husky

rlt-husky-jeep1 rlt-husky-jeep2

UPDATE II:  Ray sent some pics of a Husky he built in 1992. (Also, if you are in the UK, I know of a Husky kit jeep for sale in Jersey)

Ray built this RLT Husky R.V. atop a Ford Escort MK2 chassis. It took Ray 2 years to build his rig. He combined the kit with original parts. As you can see, it is one of the more authentic looking Husky-jeeps built from the kit. Ray sold his RLT Husky in 1995.

============================

Originally posted August of 2013:

1991-husky-look-a-like-brochure2

Sometimes called the Husky R.V. or the R.L.T. Husky, this Jeep Kit was sold out of the UK and used atop a Ford Taurus or Ford Escort Mark IV (and other cars?). It was available for an unknown period during the 1980s and 1990s.

“R.V. – Rugged and Versatile aptly describes these tough, reliable and inexpensive all-weather vehicles. The unique exterior MDF body combines great strength with structural rigidity and will not rust, crack, craze or splinter, yet is easy to repair.

The sturdy steel chassis, with substantial (de)fenders front & rear, is built for long life, stability and to cope with rugged conditions. Seating can vary from 2 fronts with a rear load space, which can be fitted with forward, rearward or inward facing rear seats, accessed via a ‘walk-thru’ from the front can be accommodated by simple modification to the cutting and assembly process, or the rear zip up rear hood window, with or without the optional opening tailgate

Fold-flat windscreen. Ford front engine/RWD ensures safe predictable handling, amazing traction and reliable mechanics. Nimble as an Escort, the HUSKY turns tighter than a London Taxi and yet provides a comfortable ride even over rough terrain. Safety options include a hefty Roll Bar, front Nudge Bar and chassis mounted Side Impact bars/steps”

The carburetor was rebuilt but could use to be cleaned and replace fuel pump to run better. One brake line is broken to the master cylinder. Radiator was re-cored. Top is in good shape as it was never used. We are open to serious offers but please, no “low price” offers. A real fun fixer up project for someone. If this listing is here it is still available.

“1946 Jeep (CJ2) for sale! This one of a kind ride is not for the faint of heart. I purchased this vehicle for several reasons. I appreciate someone’s labor of love, the time, patience and skill it requires to turn a heirloom into a beautiful racing machine. This itself is a memorable challenge and an accomplishment. A few things were kept original.

In 2010 the original family owners took it off the road, took the 350 out, bought a new 350 4 Bolt Main, and ripped it down **every nut, bolt, gasket and more…** It was built by a Chevy Master Mechanic of 38 years. Everything was done from the heads, lifters, cam, new transfer case, rear end, 411 gears, and so much more that is way too much to list.
