Fantastic please post more pics including interiors too, the Armada has been my fascination too for long - personally i still think it looks better than the bolero/scorpio and mahindra regressed with design after the armada.
The front of the armada is quite simply legendary - out and out jeep dna, ill specially look forward to more pics and updates to this thread.

OT: it ruled the roads only for a few years till sumo crashed its party.

but as our first car in the family still holds some emotional bonding when we see one on the roads. [cry]

Wow, the front of Armada looks awesome (IMO better than most present mahindra cars) please share pics of the car before & after restoration.

All the best.

Hey. Thank you very much guys.
Its a sad thing that Armada's are seen no where now days.
I couldn't post the pictures of the interior as my vehicle is with my friend rite now,will post the pictures of the interior soon and yeah i was thinking about the alloys but i have an idea of installing an A/C instead of getting a new set of alloys.
@ss80 im sorry i dont have any pic picture of before restoration.

ha! old memories of our 94 armada refreshed by these pics. do post the overall costs.
It cost me more than 1Lac,im afraid i didnt note the exact amount.

I would also suggest to get new set of tail lamps from Bolero (clear lens) it would look good. I guess it would be a direct fit.

Does is come with 4x4, power steering ?
