    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    It has been a long time since I've updated this thread, and have recently gotten some 716/18 info worth posting. First, the total number of Austrian made TD's was 5215 The UK made Pinzes totaled out at 1210 to 1214 ( depending on which source you believe, one an ex ATL employee, the other...

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    Though I don't have any new photos, the end of last year did have me in contact with BAE in the UK, that fruited some basic numbers for Pinzgauers made in the UK., and more questions. For reference, TD Pinzgauer VINs start at #1 and continue up year after year (never reset to 1), even with the...

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    A little late in posting, but a year has come and gone since I entered my Pinzgauer in the Queen's English British car meet last year. This year's visit was with a far better reception, as I went from the back of the meet last year (sort of from the back of the bus) to the front, next to the...

    It has been a while since I've updated the photos here. The Pinz has participated in 3 parades, served as a modest camper at Mogfest and 1 car show, and these are all I have is from the Torrance Armed Forces parade last May, Mogfest in October and show

    I had the Pinz out to Fairplex for a militaria swapmeet a few week back. It found this popgun, and I said it couldn't keep it... makes me thinking I need to find an abandoned M119 somewhere. :rolleyes: :mrgreen: ..

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    The British car meet has come and gone. It was well received by all, but confused the people who thought they knew Pinzgauers, with the same question of "what is an Austrian ( some even said German and Swiss:rolleyes:) vehicle doing at a British show?! Most accepted my history of SDP and ATL...

    Unfortunately, it isn't a judged event, but it would be interesting to see how people take to it. Years ago, I took my LR Vampire to a show and won "Best SUV" :lol:

    She glowing :D The same day I took it for a short drive to a restaurant before putting it away, an employee there swore I had it re-sprayed.:mrgreen: Since she had her "spa day", her color is coming back and is looking more and more like the rich Pinzgauer green seen in many photos of late...

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    You're welcome. I like to be able to show those less glamor shots that give more than the normal 2/3 profile, but may be of interest to more tech minded or curious members. And as my research continues, there may be far fewer ATL Pinzgauers with the VW 2.5TDI than I first thought. And with that...

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    I got adventurous last night and undertook the tedious task of removing the doghouse. I wanted to know what is required to remove it and what the engine looked like :) I didn't want to have to remove in an emergency and be unprepared for the operation. Having had 4 completely different Pinzes...

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    A little personal history. This is the 4th Pinz I've had. Started with a 710M in 2001, and got a 712M later the same year ( back then, the 6x6s were difficult to find). In 2002, I added a Haflinger and sold the 710. In Sept '02 I was offered a 716K (TD Pinz 4x4) that I made into a 5dr soft top...

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    Yesterday was the monthly meeting day for the local MV club. I've have driven all of my different vehicles to the meetings at one time or another (even one of the Supacats), though they've all gotten some type of attention, this Pinzgauer drew by far the most across the board attention than any...

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    It was an unbelieveable score.:mrgreen: When the word "Pinzgauer" was spoken, I knew exactly what this truck was, with my past ownership of a 716 Pinz, the work on my M1094 and the history I had learned of S&S prior to them purchasing ATL, it could only be an UK manufactured Pinzgauer with all...

    My “new” Automotive Technik Ltd Pinzgauer 718K.

    My recently aquired ATL Pinzgauer 718K This is an extremely low mileage (262 miles) UK manufactured 718K, but what is also known as 758 (for the UK manufactured Pinzgauers). There are probably less than 1200 made. Unlike SDP made TDs, this has a VW 2.5TDI engine ( the 5 cylinder version of the...
