Help identify this vehicle

Might be the wrong place for this....but maybe not.

Saw an advertisement this evening for "Mahindra" tractors said they were involved/ part of the Jeep culture....looked it up on the net and (yeah IDK so asking) said something to the effect that they made "jeeps" for INdia in India back in the day...think it was late 1940's.....my question...is multiple....are those than considered Jeeps? or are they something else? same ones over in PI? did they ever make any for shipping to US/ Military?

And lastly, am I the only one who thinks its "not exactly honest" to infer they made the original Jeeps used by our military, when it is obvious it is being done to raise your respect for their tractors?

I'm not sure about the Mahindra thing......First I heard that .
I think the "Jeep" body parts have been stamped out for many years in the PI....
Some bodies are even available in Stainless Steel...
There are also Some Chevy "classics" now being stamped out in the PI.....Cameros, and I think 55-57 bodies...as well as 32 ford bodies....
I do not believe that any Jeep Bodies were stamped and shipped to the US for Military use, these being for Restore purposes....
If I'm wrong I stand Corrected......"BH"

They still produce Jeep tubs and body parts in PI. They are amazing when you get to see a bunch of them. The culture started after WWII. They are adorned with most anything much like trucks in many foreign countries.

The Jeepne is a taxi.

I lived in the PI for 1988-89 and rode the Jeepneys to get around town. They can get really snazzed up! Very much a point of pride for the drivers...

Looks cool, but the engine options are less than exciting and it has IFS to boot - SUV Specifications: THAR cRDe & DI | Off-Road 4x4 India
