    Default Introducing The Haff (long into)

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum but not new to 4x4, I joined last Sunday and only found the courage to put finger to keyboard today.
    Haffie is a 1962 Steyr Haflinger Puch. I swapped a 1972 Datsun 1200 bakkie for her in 1981. She WORKED on our farm until 1999 without missing a beat.
    From 2000 to 2002 She underwent a complete bolt and nut restoration and was upgraded from 600cc to 650cc. Now she is trailered to 4x4 events and car shows. She can really do everything exept high dunes.
    Specifications
    650 air cooled boxer twin.
    Upgraded from 20hp to 29hp
    For wheel drive, front, centre and rear lockers.
    No low range but it does have a crawler gear.
    Tare 600Kg, load capacity 600kg towing ability 600kg
    Top speed 40 miles per hour (ha ha Garmin. says 50 km/h)
    Sad story. Last Sunday I was offered a huge amount of cash for her and she might emigrate to Australia soon, but with the money I can buy a 4x4 that I can use every day.
