1975 Steyr Puch Pinzgauer 712 AMB

This 1975 Steyr Puch Pinzgauer 712 AMB-S is a 6-wheel-drive first-generation example that served in the Swiss military until 2013, when it was purchased by a private party, repainted in Swiss Army Green, and registered as an historic vehicle. Power comes from a 2.5-liter inline-four mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and sent to all six wheels via locking front, rear, and center differentials. Additional features include a rear ambulance box with side-facing seating, storage compartments, an oxygen tank, and medical supplies. This Pinz shows just over 79k indicated kilometers (~49k miles) and is offered with a clean Arkansas title.

A repaint in Swiss Army Green was applied under previous ownership approximately four years ago, prior to importation to the US. The removable  ambulance box is designed to be transported by air and its interior measures 102″Lx66″Wx65″H according to a diagram included in the gallery below. The cab wears a removable insulated soft top.

Military badges and a tow pin are present up front, and a pintle hitch is fitted at the rear. Factory tool storage and battery boxes are affixed behind the driver-side wheel. Swiss-made 245 Maloya tires are mounted on 16″ factory steel wheels. Additional photos of the exterior are provided in the gallery.

Mileage is shown as 79k kilometers (~49k miles) including approximately 80 added by the seller. Gallery photos show the condition of the vinyl on both front seats and the diamond plated liners over the floor pans. Cabin accessories are reported to be functioning as they should. Additional equipment includes a steel tow cable and fire extinguisher.

The rear box is equipped with side-facing seats and diamond-plate flooring. The military medical equipment pictured above will be supplied with the vehicle, including stretchers and ambulance light and siren. The seller states the rear heaters have not been tested.

Power comes from a 2.5-liter gasoline inline-four mated to a 5-speed manual transaxle with a 3-way locking differential to provide power to all six wheels desired. The seller reportedly performed a service within the last month.

The Pinzgauer incorporates a central tube chassis for even weight distribution and a relatively low center of gravity. The wheels are driven by sealed differentials and portal axles allowing for high ground clearance. Gallery photos are provided to further show the condition of the undercarriage and suspension components.
