Driving up to this washout, you’d think there was no getting across. Watch this Pinzgauer give it a go.

Just a Pinzgauer 718K heading over the horizon in Tunisia.

As long as I’m on the subject of Pinzgauers, here’s an early, factory promotional film touting the benefits of the 710 (4×4) and 712 (6×6) models to the tune of a swinging soundtrack.

My friend Greg’s friend Aden spotted this rare Pinzgauer 712K, a 6×6 hardtop in part of its natural alpine setting, Zug, Switzerland. Aden says, “It’s hard to see in the photos, but the railing down the side of the vehicle is teak.  And the paint is a really nice matte black.  Overall exterior was in top shape, really nice resto job.”

Well spotted!

If you’re looking for a tough-as-nails off-roader, I don’t think you’ll get more bang for your buck than this 6×6 M-35 A2 “Deuce-and-a-Half” Army truck. Do you like hauling a lot of gear when you camp? Well, you can fit two-and-a-half tons worth of coolers, beverages, and ribs in this thing. That’s like having the hauling power of five Ford F-150s in a single truck.

Did I mention bang for the buck? It’s available right now for $3400 in Napa, California.

Here’s a link to the Craigslist ad.

Are you really thinking about it? OK, read this piece is Petersen’s 4Wheel & Off-road first. And this forum post. If you still want to get your Deuce on, the site Steel Soldiers has a lot of info.

More pictures after the jump.
