I was in a desperate search for a decent Maruti Suzuki Gypsy from a long time. And finally I got one at a Maruti True Value in Gurugram. The vehicle was 2015 model manufactured and registered a nice civilian Gypsy with no traces of Off road abuse. The vehicle was in an awesome condition with 22k km on the odometer in a very stock condition it had the same tyres which came with the vehicle and original soft top. One gift was A/C, Yes. Sanden A/C unit was installed in the Gypsy, also it had a JVC music system everything else was stock. The vehicle had original paint, great body line, Service record, both keys, user manual and yes door visors which are very hard to find now a days. They offered me a price of 5 lacs which was very steep for me as my budget was around 3-3.5 lacs. I walked away, but the Gypsy was in my mind as it was next to impossible to find a civilian gypsy of this condition.
Next month I made up my mind for the gypsy and gave a visit to them(MSTV), they had the vehicle still at them so I tried for some negotiation but the result was negative, Now I had two options one is to buy it and the second was to let it go and search for another Gypsy. Thanks to various groups on Facebook mostly managed by Shibu Varghese Sir, and thanks to the members for the valuable suggestions. It was finalised that i will go for it. I visited my bank and enquired for finance options and my bank clearly said no for funding a Maruti Gypsy! Their response was “our bank will not finance Gypsy as it not meant for normal people” I was amazed with response and contacted the MSTV if they can arrange finance service, they told me to bring the necessary documents and I did that after 3 days I got a reply from the bank and they also gave me the same excuse. I was very frustrated at this point of time and decided to get it on cash and the next week I took the delivery of My Gypsy King.
Some mods are planned for the King as soon as money flows in, Will update very soon.
