Here’s another off-road legend from Bring a Trailer. In civilian guise the 6×6 Volvo C304 and its cousin, the 4×4 Volvo C303, are formidable off-roaders, with high-ground-clearance portal axles, vacuum-locking differentials, and a 28″ fording depth. When they were commissioned by the Swedish military, they were known as the Volvo Tgb. In this case, the Tgb 1314 was the ambulance model.

If you’re looking for a go-anywhere truck to turn into an expedition vehicle or camper, this would make a great choice.

While this truck hasn’t been restored, its only covered just over 12,500 miles in its life and has been treated to a bare-metal respray. The vinyl checkerboard decals on the sides are said to be easily removable.

This Tgb 1314 is available in Logan, Utah, for only $22,000, which sounds like a great deal for a capable truck with interior room to spare.

In case you’d like to do more research here’s are links to the C303/C304 Wikipedia page and the C303/C304 owners manual.

This rare 1975 Volvo Tgb 111 started life in the Swedish military but was later converted into an extraodinarily capable off-road camper with the addition of a Maggiolina rooftop tent, custom cabinets, and a heat exchanger for hot water. Only about 8000 of these trucks were produced worldwide, and none of them were officially exported to the U.S. or produced as campers, as far as I know, making this quite an uncommon find.

This ultimate overlander is being offered for $40,000 in Santa Cruz, CA. The seller estimates that it’s covered about 80,000 miles. Click here to email him directly.

Twin spares and a rear winch!
