    Default 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 VW 4 cylinder 1.9TDI)
    4 speed automatic, also Anti-Lock Brakiing System (ABS), Electronic Braking Distribution (EBD) and Electronic Traction Control (ETC)
    And as a FFR ( Fitted For Radio) has a 2nd set of batteries in a battery box in the inside the left rear door and a junction box on the right side.
    A small 250w inverter was mounted below the junction box

    It was an unbelieveable score.
    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 the latest .. and last upgrades to the Pinzgauer line, before their shutdown

    Wow, great looking vehicle! I have always liked the pictures of Pinzguazer, but have never had the opportunity to see one in person. Do you mind if I ask what you are planning on using the vehicle for? How many seats does it have in it's current configuration?

    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 of them.

    I can't be sure why... just being a clean looking 6x6 5 door hardtop? Couldn't have been the diesel, most assumed it was an air cool gas engined Pinz ( even though my 716 was a 2.4TD, and been to the meetings many times). The automatic trans caught many's attention. The faded exterior paint was the only thing that detracted from the truck being "NEW", rather than new to an owner. It could also be the 'stance' the truck has in person and not protraded in photos ( and I think that is it). This Pinz stands differently than any of my previous Pinzes (this is my 4th)... I think I need a new camera with the "AWE" feature. The FDT seems to have the same problem

    This truck seat 5. The truck is for fun and will not be put "at risk"... it is just too rare. At this time, a friend in the UK knows of only 3 UK manufactured Pinzgauers in private hands in the world. Mine in the US, and 2 more on his side of the pond.. there may be a few more, but who knows

    Spectacular...

    The 2.5 is probably an Audi variant ( I know its all really the same) but the 5 cyl. engines were used in the Audi's & the T3 & T4 Vans.
