DESCRIPTIONThe Pinzgauer is a family of high-mobility all-terrain military utility vehicles. Originally developed in the late 1960s by Steyr-Daimler-Puch of Graz, Austria, and was named after the Pinzgauer, an Austrian breed of horse. It was popular amongst military buyers, and continued in production throughout the rest of the century. The original prototype was developed around 1969 and productionbegan in 1971. The Pinzgauer is one of the most capable all-terrain vehicles. While not as fast (68 mph) as the American Humvee, it can carry more people and can tow 11,023 lbs. on road and 3,968 lbs. off-road. It has a range of over 249 mi on one tank of fuel. The overall length is 16.25 feet, the overall width is 5.8 feet, and overall height is 6.7 feet. The wheelbase is 6.5 - 3.2 feet, wheel track is 4.7 feet, ground clearance is 13 inches, and fording depth, 27.5 inches. The Pinzgauer was designed to be reliable and easy to fix; with an air-cooled petrol engine with dual- Zenith 36 mm NDIX carburetors and an engine specifically designed for the vehicle; it has more than one oil pump so that the engine will not get starved of oil no matter how the vehicle is orientated, it was created with easy upkeep as a necessity. The Pinzgauer has a chassis design, which contributes to its high mobility. It has a central tube chassis with a transaxle, which distributes the weight more evenly, and keeps the center of gravity as low as possible. The differentials are all sealed units and require minimal additional lubrication. The Pinzgauer also has portal axles like the Unimog to provide extra clearance over obstacles. The rear suspension on the back of the 6x6 712 isdesigned to provide maximum traction in the most demanding circumstances along with increasing its towing, load carrying, and off-road abilities. This amazing historic all-terrainvehicle includes roll up and removable canvas, roll over protection, central tube chassis, two front doors with sliding windows, one rear door without upper part, two front seats, and six folding rear seats for 12 passengers.
A Vehicle Identification Number is a unique serial number generated by the original manufacturer and permanently affixed to the vehicle.
