Re: Stretching the wheel base?

Rocky Mountain Westie Christoph Gut in Switzerland has built a unique Pinzgauer with extended chassis. He has used the tube extension of a 710 for a 712 https://pinzgauer.ch/assets/0000/4076/DSC015111747-0sw_thumb.jpg?1514499552 additional pics and the stories around can be found at https://pinzgau...

Re: Pinz, only but a dream?

Azenix, Registering a pre '75 depends on CARB attitudes are that day. As for the actual registration, There are a couple different ways to register a Pinz in California. You can register them commercially, as Ron did, and you pay an additional $80 on a 710M/K and $231 for a 712M/K in weight fees, an...

Re: Looking for stock steel wheels

The G wagon rims will fit the bolt pattern for the 716 and 718 not the 710 or 712

Re: Custom door panels

Kydek is actually what is used on the FMTVs since the early '90s for door panels and the interior trim. Since I haven't owned a 710/12 since 2003 and TDs have plastic door panels, I've never weighed in on this before, but if you live in the southwest or anyplace you have extreme ambient temperatures...

Re: Soft top question...

This is one of those questions where you should stay in the TD section. First off there are 2 methods that retained the softtops on the 710/12 m's. Swiss and Austrian . The TD softtops would have been similar to the Austrian way. Without seeing pics of your top, but dealt with 2 TDs K ( and converti...

Re: The Ex USA Demo 716

Well, we have a difference of Pinzes and mirrors. Back in '02 when I got my Pinz, most single mount mirrors were the smaller glass mirror and the 2 point mount were the UK style polished stainless mirrors, At the same time, my 101 Vampire had the UK style (naturally :wink: ). And oddly enough, I hav...

Re: The Ex USA Demo 716

BTW, this Pinz was all RAL white and no winch, but with the extra side windows. It obviously had somewhat of a rough time in the UK, as it show panels on the rear doors indicating rust-through and sports those ugly oversize UK mirrors

Re: The Ex USA Demo 716

AAAh, so it finally surfaces ! It actual was not an demonstrator but rather an example for Federal/CARB emission ( and DOT?) testing. SDP brought 2 716K into the USA (California) for federal/state testing. One was an automatic and the other was a 5 speed (for testing, the US required all applied var...

Re: Trailering a 710?

ChickenPinz You're not going to have much choice for a trailer, it should be 7000lbs and must have brakes on at least one axle. I would not use a FJ as a long distance tow vehicle. Even that it's within factory parameters, it is on the small size and light and the brakes are adequate only for the ve...

Re: Buying this monstrosity...1983 Pinzgauer

My personal opinion would be to buy a somewhat stock Pinzgauer if you wanted community support. I would have hoped that if the OP did buy this vehicle even though it is not liked, the "community" would offer as much support as is possible to support the OP and his vehicle. Pretty poor form not to o...
