    A Geländewagen, which means cross country vehicle, is NOTHING like a JEEP... other than maybe having solid axles front and rear and being 4 wheel drive....

    additionally, typing "gwagen" even as one word into google would have told you exactly what it was...

    A recent post noted there were only six Tatra's in the US, complete nonsense, there are quire a few floating around on different sites and boards (projects, complete trucks for sale, government and utility vehicles, parts trucks, private collectors, etc) There certainly arent thousands of them, but more than six.

    Hey Duncan

    No but thanks for the reminder....I still need to get the axle boots, thanks for the lead I will follow up on that shortly.

    Im also in the process of building a new bed on the back of my Tatra, all diamondplate steel, powdercoated and custom sides full roll cage etc, doing it right so it is taking a while.
    I also just bought a Monster truck the old Maniac monster truck. so Ive tore it down to the chassis and building it from ground up again......keeping me very busy.

    Hows your old Tatra going?

    Good to hear, let me know if it that lead works out, otherwise I will dig a little further. You're converting one of your 813 into a hardcore offroader then?

    My old beasty is doing great. Currently servicing the engine and replacing most gaskets, and this winter we will take it onto the next crazy 4000+ mile trip around eastern Europe. Already the quality and reliability have far surpassed my expectations, and with only 10 000km on the tacho, she's getting better and running smoother by the mile.

    Default TATRA T-815 (8x8) For Sale

    Hi,

    TATRA T-815 Fore Sale In USA!!

    I am a new member and just joined today. Still trying to figure out how to post my ad in "Classifieds".

    I believe you are looking to buy a TATRA T-815. I only know of one T-815 in the USA that was said to be captured in "Operation Desert Storm". I OWN IT and ready to sell! I have extended it by 6ft. It is in the process of being converted into an RV. It is built with heavy steel framing, has 2-slide outs and fold down sun deck. At this point it is partially cladded. It has about 15,000 miles on the 1.2 million mile V12 (Air Cooled Engine). It's a BIG Pinzgauer with the same designer.

    I plan to head back to Africa on a long safari - Hence we will need to part.

    For the record, I have over $88,000.00 invested and ready to accept my loses. I hope to sell for $59,000.00. (As Is)

    That is one awesome looking rig you got there Wally!

    As for posting in the classifieds, you should be able to just go to the Classifieds section and start a new thread under Vehicles for Sale listing it.

    Good luck!
