Finished in Gunmetal Grey Metallic the 1951 military Jeep has been transformed with a couple modern and more convenient touches. The owners father who originally owned the Willys has his racing number displayed on the tailgate in remembrance.
This 1973 Pinzgauar 710M ten person troop transporter now wears a set of Interco Narrow S.S. “Super Swamper” tires. The original prototype was developed around 1969 and production began in 1971, as a successor of the Steyr-Daimler-Puch Haflinger 700 AP 4×4 light military multi purpose offroad vehicle.
Powered by the L-134 Go-Devil engine these civilian versions of the military Willys MB were intended for farming, ranching, and industrial applications. The CJ-2A sports a grille reminiscent of those found on modern Jeeps which makes them easy to differentiate from the military model.
Commonly used by the Austrian and Swiss militaries this vehicle now in the United States was not running the best. After repairing and synching the carbs the air cooled four cylinder engine runs great.
