This weekend I’ve posted a couple of ex-Norwegian Army vehicles. This 1988 Geländerwagen is Danish, for a change. It too is army surplus, as the paintjob can tell a well-trained eye.
It’s pretty worn, but comes with service history as military vehicles often do. Check it out.
The paintjob is partially camo, partially rust fixes. On a vehicle like this, it’s pretty handy; if you need to fix a spot, just pick a colour that is either forest green or black. Won’t matter how you apply it.
As the ad copy says: The vehicle has various scratches, dents and through corrosion. There are various injuries in the cabin. The vehicle appears used.
The part about scratches, dents and corrosion is pretty normal, the bit about injuries is surprising. Someone might’ve shot themselves in the family vegetables in it, judging by the seat.
The odo reading is 94200 km, and judging by the logbook, it’s not on its second round. It also seems the vehicle’s been out of commission for a couple years, which is likely. The ever-reliable 72-horse OM616 diesel engine should be good for a good bit more, if the body doesn’t give up before that.
You can see the km:s piling on during the years. Oil changes and other maintenance has been done, even if it has been possibly done by clueless recruits wielding a hammer.
The current bid for this Geländerwagen is 23 000 DKK, or 3000 USD, over at retrade.dk. Would you tow it home for that price?
