Vehicle transformation jobs have become quite common in India. People transforming their regular sedans into exotic Lamborghinis or humble Boleros getting into G63 looks are not so rare now. It seems like enthusiasts have been doing this for a long time now. Here is a JONGA as claimed by the person who posted the advertised converted into a Land Rover Defender. You should not confuse this with the Nissan 1 Ton. It is the JONGA, which was an army-spec version of the Nissan Patrol.
Nonetheless, the information shared by Cardealz Mohali in a group claims that this is a 1974 JONGA. The vehicle is converted into a Land Rover Defender from the previous generation. We are not sure if the transformation has been done recently or it has remained like this for years.
The post shares information on the car and it is registered in Chandigarh. The seller also says that the vehicle is registered till 2025 with smartcard registration and it is passed till then. Other information about the vehicle includes that the vehicle also has a pressure horn. However, there are a few other things that we can notice too.

Starting with the front, this vehicle gets LED headlamps with projectors. Even the LED DRLs are integrated into the headlamp unit. There is a massive grille in the front and it also gets a steel bumper with a bull bar. There are two steel pipes extending from the side of the vehicle. We are not sure if they are functional but they seem to look like the exhausts.
It also gets aftermarket tyres. The vehicle is transformed into a Land Rover Defender 90, which came with three doors. It sure has the elements of the original Land Rover Defender but does not look exactly like the original vehicle.
The original army-spec JONGA came powered by a six-cylinder petrol engine. However, the seller claims that this is powered by a diesel engine. The diesel engine never made it to the army-spec version of the car. In the early 1990s, Ashok Leyland supplied diesel engines for the civilian-spec JONGA. However, these did not become much popular. Also, the vehicle was originally made for six occupants but the seating capacity was later increased to 8 seats.
The overall condition of this Nissan Jonga looks great. There is no rusting or any other kind of damage on the vehicle. However, the vehicle seems to have been repainted recently. So if there were any such deformation on the body, it would have been repaired during the body painting. The asking price for this transformed JONGA is Rs 9 lakh.

It is always a good idea to verify the claims of the seller by thoroughly checking the vehicle before purchasing. For more information and details, you can contact the seller directly by clicking here.
