Up for auction is my 1974 Steyr-Puch Pinzgauer 710M.  I have owned it for about 6 years now and hate to see it go, but I just don’t have time for it anymore.  It was retired from the Swiss Military, and I have made a few upgrades. It is the troop carrier configuration, and seats 10 people (Driver/Passenger + 8 in the rear)Here are some of the options:
-Hydraulically controlled 4WD with front and rear Locking Differentials
-Portal axles for high ground clearance (Each wheel is gear driven so the axle housing is above the center of the wheel)
-Air Cooled 4 cyl. gas engine
-Very easy to work on
-Pertronix ignition (to replace original points and condenser)
-Civilian Ignition conversion
-2 rifle holders in front of passenger seat
-2 piece hard doors (Upper half is easily removed)
-K&N air filter
-Rancho RS9000 adjustable shocks
-Pro Comp Steering Stabilizer
-BF Goodrich KM1 Mud Terrain (235/85-16) with matching spare. 
-Custom Bumper with Mile Marker 9500 lb. winch with cover
-24v-12v power converter
-Stereo with CD
-Hi-lift Jack mounted in the rear passenger area
-Brand new batteries
-Original Tow cable, Jack, Tool Kit, Wash bucket, and Tire Chains included, as well as original front bumperettes
-Oil, and all drive fluids changed regularly. 
-I have the complete Service Manual in English on disc, and also printed it and put the pages in plastic sleeves in a 3 ring binder.
-Buyer will also receive all spare parts and also the Carb. Sync tool that I purchased for properly adjusting the dual Carbs
-Parts are easily available online (swissarmyvehicles.com) and reasonably priced
-Vehicle has clear Michigan Title, and all import paperwork will be included.  Easy and inexpensive to insure.  (It is currently insured as a vintage show vehicle)

This Pinzgauer is in good shape.  It starts, runs, and drives great.  It is a blast to drive both on and off road, and gets a ton of looks!  It is a 1974 and some things may require some attention:
-There are a couple of spots on the upper half doors showing a bit of surface rust, and the window slide seals probably should be replaced.
-The stitching on the back panel of the top needs to be re-stitched.  (Common from rolling the sides of the top up.) 
-It does burn a little oil at start up
-There is a dent in the rear bumper bar
-The choke knob is broken off

The odometer reads 13939 km (8661) and is accurate to my knowledge
