The craze of getting an Army owned vehicles has been present in our country for a long time. Not only in India but enthusiasts in various countries across the world look forward to buying an army owned vehicle. In India, the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy and the Mahindra CJ3B among others are the most popular vehicles used by the army. However, several of you might have heard of the Jonga and the 1 Ton which were once used by the Indian Army. The vehicle featured here is also a Nissan 1 tonne but has been restored and modified into the avatar it wears so proudly now. The best part about this 1 Ton is that it is available for sale and one can get in touch with the seller by clicking here.
To let you know, the Jonga was a Nissan designed vehicle used by the Indian Army. Jonga was an acronym for Jabalpur Ordnance and Guncarriage Assembly. This one here has been modified by WS Designs who in past have modified several other such vehicles. According to the advertisement posted by WS Designs itself, the vehicle is ready for delivery and interested buyers can get in touch to know about its price.
As seen in the pictures, this vehicle looks butch and has more presence than any other SUV you might place next to it. Those huge 1200/20 Military Tires along lend it a stance that is intimidating and nothing short of dramatic. This particular Nissan 4W73 (1 Ton) was manufactured in 1999 and has been registered in the state of Punjab.
On the inside, it has been fitted with custom seats while the whole cabin has been redone with the original design not tampered with much. Windshield wipers and off-road friendly doors have been installed on the car too. It is powered by a 3.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine which has been mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox. Obviously, it is a 4×4 vehicle and it can take you places that no other regular vehicles would ever dream to go.
The Nissan Jonga and the 1-Ton are both quite rare a sight in our country and were available in many international markets, though with the necessary alterations on them. The Jonga remained the truster Army car for a long time and it was also sold to the civilians for a short period of time in India before it was discontinued from the Indian market. So if you want to own a vehicle that has a piece of history attached to it and is also a supreme off-roader, this is the one to check out.
