    Default What can I sell my Pinz for??? Opinions Needed

    Toying with the idea of selling (passing on actually) my Pinzgauer.

    Yes I do know I'm mad, the thought has crossed my mind.

    But the Pinz does have its niggles, no papers, and I just NEVER use it.

    I'm thinking of replacing it with something like a super clean Pickup, something like a F 250 or Landy V8 110 or similar. I'm actually going to look at a 1977 Land Cruiser 45 Pickup in Vrede some time...........mileage is apparently 77000, with all documentation.

    What is this Pinz worth??

    I'm not planning to retire on selling it, but I definitely wo'nt be giving it away, either.

    Short description:

    1971 Pinzgauer 710M. 42000 km, and I have no reason to believe that's not true mileage. 100% complete and original, except for the exterior paint job.
    Comes with original owners manuals, swiss spade, original extra set of canvas (brand new).
    Has a stutter when under load, I think it may be a valve stem seal(s).
    Body has some rust on the windscreen etc etc but nothing serious.
    Zim registered.
    Everything in 100% working nick - the lockers, tranny, etc etc. NO issues there. ONLY mechanical issue is that stutter.

    I'm thinking valve stem seal(s)......but yes, chances are VERY good that it's something very very small. I'm just getting really gatvol, no-one in town can work on this.

    So........what would you say, how much is this worth??

    Please no comments about my mental state, I know I'm stark raving mad to sell this.

    I'm putting this out here first, before just taking pics and placing it for sale on other platforms. Maybe someone in here may be interested, it really IS a very very very nice vehicle with a huge "feel good" factor.

    I think 30 or 35, cant remember.

    + R 7000 transport I think

    + around R 3000 parts

    + around R 2000 on alternator

    + around R 3000 on the batteries

    + around R 12000 or so on mechanics in town

    I think thats about it.........around R 60000.

    Petri, I would go international with it if in your position. At the current exchange rate I think you can score big time.

    yep, get onto the UK Pinz forums, you'll make your money

    Nobody in ZA will pay R60k for yours without papers.

    Jis Soois.....you must see what these parts go for. Its crazy.

    But thats not the "point" - I'd have great pleasure passing this on to an enthusiast who have the know-how or someone close by. who knows these cars.

    But ja, if I sell this off in parts...........BIG BIG $$$.

    That "bimini canvas" alone is on eBAY for around $1000 plus........and mine is brand new, never used.

    Actually sad........but I just NEVER use it.

    Sal baie meer hou van iets soos 'n Pickup V8 110 of mooi 45 of F250 of selfs Safari. Maar SPOTLESS. Selfs 'n immaculate SFA Hilux SCab.

    One of my dream vehicles to turn into an overlander / camper.
    Not having papers for it unfortunately makes it a no-go

    Ek hoor wat julle Manne se. Ek het gevra vir Opinies, en dis wat ek kry, baie dankie

    MAAR ek gaan ook nou nie 'n original 1971 Pinzgauer weggee teen die prys van 'n tweedehandse quad bike nie.

    Dalk maar eers die dingetjie hou. Gaan hom BAIE mis, al is dit net sy looks.

    Petri ek glo vir die regte persoon is hierdie n great voertuig maar dis n baie niche produk...net n handtjie vol ouens sal regtig belangstel in so iets. Wat dink jy is jou ek verkoop hom nou aan jou prys?
