STORY

The Steyr-Puch Haflinger AP 700 is a small, all-terrain vehicle produced by the Austrian company Steyr-Daimler-Puch AG.

The Haflinger was developed in the late 1950s and first introduced in 1959. The development was a response to the Austrian Army's requirements for a lightweight, off-road vehicle.

The Haflinger was a small, four-wheeled vehicle with a central tube frame and an air-cooled boxer engine in the rear. The engine had an output of around 25 hp and drove all four wheels. Off-road capability was improved by a portal axle and a central differential lock.

Production of the Haflinger ended in the 1970s. A total of around 16,600 units were produced. Although production has ceased, some Haflingers are still in use and they have achieved a certain cult status among enthusiasts and collectors.

The Steyr-Puch Haflinger AP 700 remains an interesting and iconic vehicle in the history of Austrian military vehicles and has a loyal fan base due to its uniqueness and functionality.

PERSONAL STORY

This Haflinger was never used by the Federal Army and was always used as a civilian vehicle on various forestry properties in Austria.

For this reason it has the civilian white-grey paintwork.

This vehicle has been restored from scratch and also has off-road tires.
