Pinzgauer 718 Turbo Diesels - Military History Up Close and Personal
Expedition Imports

So the story goes that a select group of 15 x 718 Pinzgauers were used by Delta Force (Task Force 20) to enter Iraq on March 19th, 2003 en-route to the Haditha dam complex. These were the first "operators" to enter the country and attack/secure high priority targets. Their mode of transport was the Pinzgauer 718 Turbo Diesel gun trucks. Officially the Iraq war started the next day on March 20th. Fast forward to the Pinzgauers sitting in Qatar for a number of years before making their way back to the U.S., being de-militarized and surplussed by the Federal Government.

EI is pleased to have picked up a number of these unique vehicles. We are currently just starting the refurb and rebuild process. Follow along as over the next couple of years these vehicles get re-purposed.

Well this year at Round One on April 9-10th, Craig took FIRST PLACE. We are hoping to see a lot of "our" team up on the podium this year. Congratulations to Craig and his team.

Thor Movie Trucks

Posted by Administrator on 4/1/2011 to Pinzgauer News

We had the privilege of working with the production company to supply 4 Pinzgauer 710K's for the Thor movie. When the film was released we were pleased to see a substantial amount of footage made it into the film. The Pinzgauers had some significant modifications. Some very useful design development, and some things that while great for shooting a movie, are not viable modifications for road use. In this article we will cover some of the unique characteristics of these trucks.
