I just spotted this Volkswagen Type 2 Double Cab flatbed pick-up on Craigslist. I’ve always had a soft spot for these drop-side trucks. According to the ad it’s had some interior work done and it looks to be in good condition. The ad doesn’t state the engine type but this generation came equipped with engines ranging from 1.6 to 2.0 liters.

The truck is located in the San Francisco Bay Area with an asking price of $15,800.

There’s something about these old Wagoneers. They grow on you. This was America’s first luxury SUV: rugged, wood-paneled, beautiful. This 1988 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is powered by a 360 c.i. (5.9-liter) V8 and has a low 140 hp but a respectable 273 lb-ft of torque, and an automatic transmission. It has traveled just over 100,000 miles, although the seller states that engine was replaced at 66,000 miles. He also states that the truck has been restored. He lists a number of replaced parts but doesn’t state whether this was a frame-off restoration or not.

According to Wikipedia the 1987–1991 (the last year of production) models are considered the “best of the breed,” as these include upgrades such as better paint and wheels. The 1989-and-later trucks had further fit, finish, and mechanical improvements. One such improvement was a rear wiper assembly which, unfortunately, this one lacks.

The color combination on this one is fantastic though: Spinnaker Blue and wood paneling over a beige leather-and-fabric interior. Check out how thick the carpets are. Have a look at the amazing plaid ceiling.

This Wagoneer is available on ebay and located in Everett, Washington. The bidding currently stands at $7,100 with an unmet reserve. The Buy-It-Now price is $44k. The auction closes in about four days.

If you’d like to do additional research, check out Wagoneer World, a Texas Wagonner dealer, GrandWagoneer.com, a restoration shop with hundreds of photos on their site, and, of course, Wikipedia.

More photos of this truck below.

Update 5/21/2013: The truck was bid up to $10,100 on ebay but failed to meet reserve.

I spotted this 1971 Land Rover Series IIA 88 Utility on ebay yesterday. The seller states that it was treated to a $50k, frame-off restoration in 2000 at the British Northwest Land Rover Company, and has taken four Best in Class awards since that time. Better-than-new upgrades include dual gas tanks, leather seats, stainless steel exhaust, and gearing to allow 70-mph highway cruising.

This classic, soft-top Land Rover was finished in marine blue and features a 2.25-liter, four-cylinder, gasoline engine. Total mileage is just over 51,000, with 4,000 having been driven since the restoration. The condition really does look fantastic.

The vehicle is located in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Bidding currently stands at $14,600 with an unmet reserve. There are about eight days left on the auction. More photos below.

Update 5/19/2013: This Land Rover sold for a high bid of $34,250.

This tidy-looking 1978 Unimog U416 is currently on offer at ebay in a no-reserve auction. Besides the 5.7-liter diesel, 20 forward and 8 reverse gears, portal axles, and fully locking diffs, this one features a convertible top, 42″ tires, and front and rear winches. Factory hydraulics are said to have been removed but an onboard air tank for filling up the tires or running shop tools is included. The drop-side bed reveals a six-passenger bench which doubles as a toolbox.

The seller makes no mention of high-speed axles, so expect a 55 mph top speed. If driving slowly is your thing though, you’re in luck. This truck is equipped with “super crawler gears” which enable a top speed of 0.06 mph in first gear.

One Unimog owner on Bring a Trailer commented that, with proper weights fitted, his former-German Air Force Unimog had a towing capacity of 22 tons. That’s 44,000 pounds!

This Unimog is located in Tucson, Arizona. Bidding currently stands at $27,100 with about three days left on the clock.

Update 5/6/2013: A day after this post went up all bids were cancelled, which may indicate that the truck was sold offline. The highest bid offered before the cancellation was $28,500.

This gorgeous, restored 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45 long bed pickup looks better than new. It’s said to have traveled 53,000 miles since new. Much has been replaced and it features a new Warn winch. Bring a Trailer notes that it came from the factory with Air conditioning and power steering, two desirable options. A 4-spd manual and the Toyota 2F, inline six round out the specs.

The truck is located in Montana. Bidding currently stands at $39,800 with about 5 days on the clock.

Update 4/29/2013: The seller seems to have ended the auction early and sold the truck offline.

If you hurry, you can still grab this 1971 Pinzgauer 710K off of ebay. It’s a claimed 21,000-mile barn find. The seller writes that it was imported from Switzerland, upgraded, and put away, but not without being run once a month. Sounds ideal. Do the goods live up to the story? You won’t even have to drive to Idaho to check. The seller says he’ll drive it to you (up to 2,000 miles).

You know the rest of the details: 2.5-liter, 90 hp, gasoline engine; 5-spd, manual transmission; 2-spd transfer case; and portal axles.

As I said, the truck is located in Idaho. Bidding currently stands at $14,600 with less than 24 hours left on the clock.

Update 4/28/2013: This truck sold for $20,100.

For times when an already capable 4-wheel-drive G Class just won’t do, Mercedes-Benz has announced that, come October, it will offer this outrageous-looking 6×6 version.

It’s specified in G63 trim, meaning this über-off-roader will get its grunt from a twin-turbo, AMG 5.5-liter V8, which will slam 544 horsepower and 560 foot-pounds of torque through a seven-speed, automatic transmission. That’s enough to propel this 8,300-lb. goliath from 0 to 60 in about 6 seconds. Damn.

Other features include portal axles, five locking differentials, cabin-controlled tire pressure adjustment, and 37-inch wheels.

Interested? The price hasn’t been set but expect to pay in the neighborhood of $450,000.

A pretty amazing thing showed up on Bring a Trailer yesterday: a Dutch company that sells vintage G-Wagens from German fire departments. They’re all incredibly low mileage, reasonably priced, and — if I know anything about Germans — extraordinarily well maintained.

Take the 280 GE above example. It’s covered only 21,000 kms since 1983. That’s only a hair over 13,000 miles! The price? 19,900 Euros. You’d pay a mere $26,259 at today’s rates.

This one is equipped with a gasoline-powered, 6-cylinder, fuel-injected, M110 engine, mated to a manual transmission, of course. The ad doesn’t state whether the emergency lights and siren are functional but that awesome fluorescent red paint seems to be working just fine.

It’s over 25 years old, so importing it to the U.S. should be hassle free. And this isn’t the only one on the site.

Here’s a classic overlander for sale on Expedition Portal. It’s a 1972 Land Rover Series IIA Dormobile. These Land Rovers were modified by the Dormobile company with the addition of a sink, stove, and integrated tent roof.

This one is said to have a rare, 2.6-liter, 6-cylinder engine and about 50,000 miles. According to the ad, it needs a little bit to address the brakes and a leaky gas tank but at $12,000 it may be a pretty good buy.

It’s located in Golden, Colorado. More photos after the jump.

I’ve always liked the classic good looks of the 80s and 90s BMW GS series motorcycles. If you’re a fan as well, and are in the market, there’s one on Expedition Portal at the moment. It’s a 1995, the last year made, has about 44k miles on the clock, and is for sale in Alaska for $7,500.
