You are looking
at one of the most versatile Go-Anywhere Classic Volkswagens on the road and I
think it’s safe to say that it’s probably one of the best condition Syncro crew
cab pickups in the UK.

This Transporter
Syncro was believed to be one of a handful ordered new by the American US army
based in Germany. It’s said that they saw very little action at all and were
kept as (war reserve) vehicles which spent most of their lives in dry storage
through the nineties being used for training and serviced and maintained to
within an inch of their lives.

Being disbanded
and sold off in early 2006, this syncro was bought by a classic VW collector
who kept it up to very recently on display in his private collection. It was first
Mot’d on arrival in the UK in 2006 but not UK registered until 2013 where it
then had a further MOT which it sailed through with no advisories. Although it
has been Mot’d three times in this country it has only done approx 120 miles on
UK roads with the actual UK plates only being fitted for the 2018 Mot. The
vehicle has only one UK owner and the American Army making it a two owner
vehicle.

This syncro is
totally standard as it left the factory and is in exceptional condition
throughout. It’s clear is seen very little use at all and has spent many years
in dry storage. It retains all its original features including a fitted diesel
heater under the rear seats and canvas back with original cover supports.

The mileage is
92,000 KM which works out at just over 57,000 miles which is clear to see by
the condition of the syncro is correct. Obviously with it being an ex military
reserve vehicle we have very little in supporting paperwork to back up the
mileage as it’s always been maintained In-House but everywhere you look at this
pickup it’s clear to see its genuine

These Trucks
where fully expedition built with most scenario’s in mind, it’s can be used as
a normal road going 4x4 pick up the same as any other, but on the other hand
this vehicle when put in four-wheel drive by pulling the central Syncro buttons
it will really go anywhere, it has 4 brand new Maxxis all terrain tyres and
with these its unstoppable. It has a separate diff with normal drive on the and
a diff lock for that axle with optional Four-wheel drive. It also has a
crawler-Low range gear for serious off-roading.

This vehicle is
in very good order throughout and starts easily and runs very well. It keeps
cool and never overheats, uses very little oil and has excellent clutch/brakes
and gearbox with surprisingly good pulling Turbo its recently been used for a
120-mile Classic run which it gained a serious amount of interest and run very
well.

As you can see
the synchro has a new set of genuine VW spec Synchro wheels fitted with new
high quality all terrain tyres fitted.

Please only make serious offers if you are aware what
this is and that this is a serious bit of kit and a 29-year-old Ex-Military
vehicle in tip top condition. We can deliver anywhere in the UK. It has
recently been used for a 100-mile round trip which it run very well.

VIEWING HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND
WELCOMED

Please only genuine bidders and no timewasters as I will
pursue them for my listing fee and report to eBay.

If the vehicle cannot be collected
within two days I must receive a £50 deposit via pay pal to secure, and it must
be collected no later than 7 days after auction ends. Cash or bank transfer for
the balance before the truck leaves my possession.

THE TRUCK IS LOCATED IN HOLWELL NORTH
WALES. I CAN MEET AT MY LOCAL TRAIN STATION (FLINT)

background:white;vertical-align:middle">Steyr Puch soon gained a
reputation for innovative designs and well-made vehicles from light cars to
trucks. After the Second World War Steyr built Fiat and Fiat-based vehicles
under licence before producing the off-road vehicles that gave them greater
prominence.

background:white;vertical-align:middle">The Haflinger was a small
twin-cylinder four-wheel vehicle that could boldly go where even Land Rovers
had difficulty and was taken up by the military around the world. This led to
the production, in 1971, of a larger and more versatile vehicle, the Pinzgauer
(named, like the Haflinger, after a breed of hardy, mountain pony).

background:white;vertical-align:middle">Initially the Pinzgauer was
powered by a 2·5-litre four-cylinder air-cooled engine producing around 100bhpp
and 133lb ft of torque and driving through a five-speed gearbox and two-speed
transfer box, although later models used a six-cylinder turbo-charged diesel
engine. The secret to the Pinzgauer’s go-anywhere success was its portal axles
(placed above the wheel centres and driving through drop-gears) and its four-
or six-wheel drive and hydraulic differential locks which could be operated
whilst on the move.

background:white;vertical-align:middle">The Pinzgauer was available as
a station wagon, a flat top carrier, a crew-cab pickup, a soft top with rear
passenger seat capable of carrying 10 people, a fire engine and an ambulance.
It was taken up by the army and the fire service of countries around the world
and even saw action in the Paris-Dakar Rally. Production ended in 2008 by which
time the Pinzgauer had fallen under the control of BAe Systems who lost the
plot and shelved development of the vehicle.

background:white;vertical-align:middle">This is a First Generation
Pinzgauer dating from 1971. It was built to Swiss Army specifications (yes,
yes, unfold it carefully and you can open a bottle with it, remove boy scouts
from horses' hooves etc) which means it has a slightly higher spec than most.

background:white;vertical-align:middle">It has also had some
aftermarket upgrades including: fully galvanized chassis; six-wheel drive;
power steering; roll cage; bucket seats; on-board air compressor (for the
tyres); reversing camera (and one side camera); 24 volt electrics (for the
motive part) and two deep-cycle gel 100ah leisure batteries (for the
accommodation and accessories) and Victron battery monitor; 240v hook-up; sofa
bed; fridge freezer; microwave; power shower; two 15 litre fresh water tanks
and – yes – even a kitchen sink.

background:white;vertical-align:middle">What it doesn’t have is the
composting toilet that it was fitted with, but the vendor has offered to supply
it ‘under desperate negotiation’ (he says it works very well and has become
quite attached to it). This is not an exhaustive list of fixtures and fittings
(did we mention the cabin heaters or solid oak worktops?) and any interested
party really should come and experience the guided tour!

background:white;vertical-align:middle">The vendor bought the Steyr
last year but it has had little use and is only for sale as his plans have
changed. It was set up to be a proper expedition vehicle and will fit that role
admirably as it will go just about anywhere: it can climb down a 14” wall, ford
a 27” deep stream, handle a 100% slope, has 45°/45° approach and departure
angles, and has 13” ground clearance when fully loaded. Read that and weep, you
girly Land Rover owners!

background:white;vertical-align:middle">The Pinzgauer comes with a V5C and
it is expected that it will have a new MOT in time for the sale. As it is under
3.5 tons, anyone can drive it with a normal car licence.
