Neutral But Still Mean: 1975 Pinzgauer Swiss Army Truck

You can take a Pinzgauer out of Switzerland, but you can't take the Switzerland out of a Pinzgauer.

They were developed around 1969 in Austria by European manufacturing conglomerate Steyr-Daimler-Puch, who existed from the late 1880s until they were dissolved in 2001. The Pinzgauer was available in 4x4 or 6x6 configurations.

The seller says this one has been fully restored from the ground up, and it shows. The vehicle looks stunning in glossy black over grey interior. Most of the ones you will see are worn camo-colored vehicles with canvas tops. This one has a full solid roof.

The aftermarket tires and Land Rover alloy wheels are pitch-perfect, but the seller says the original tires and wheels are available too.

The seller says the restoration even included a reconditioned drive-train that was sandblasted and painted black in and out. They say insulation and upholstery was added to the interior. In short, they tastefully refined but didn't tame this beast.

The inline 4-cylinder gas engine is smaller than I thought, but you don't drive these for insane performance the way you would a Lamborghini LM002.

The seller says it has a new engine with only 4,000 miles on it, and the odometer reads 40,000 kilometers which is only about 25,000 miles.

This thing seems like it was adored by the previous owner and is ready to go to a new home.
