No way. The body would have to be a hell of a lot higher off the wheels to use the Pinzy stuff....That or have torque tubes running down the center of the passenger compartment. [:)]

I think these are "for real" G's. It would be interesting to see what the drive lines look like though.

RE: g 6x6

make your own. At the price used g's are now (in Europe) you can make from 2... 1

start with a 460 series... it is less expensive

RE: g 6x6

Autocenteret Fjeldstad i Norway makes 6x6 463's, but seeing as their only customers for these cars are Saudi Arabia princes and sheiks, the pricelevel is equally exotic.

Text in norwegian, but the picture is halfway down the page

RE: g 6x6

Re "Make your own" suggestion - I do actually have enough bits in stock to do so, but how does the drivetrain work to the rear-most axle? Anyone ?

It would certainly make a practical expedition camper base than a 712 Pinzgauer....
