For sale is a 1971 GAZ66 Expedition truck, Overlander, 4×4
(this is proper 4 wheel drive, i.e. when one wheel gets stuck the other three slow down enough to pull it out)
The truck has a fully rebuilt 4.2 V8 engine and is doing approx. 24 miles per gallon on LPG. Every screw has been looked at and replaced if necessary, it took months to rebuild and renew her.
Other parts that are new are the clutch, fuel pump, oil pump, power steering pump, all hydraulic hoses and perishable rubbers, clutch and brake master cylinder, brakes all round serviced, transfer box and seals serviced, new thermostat, new back lights, etc. Everything is working as it should, this vehicle is ready to drive away. She drives very smoothly, the power steering is exceptionally good, you can turn almost on a penny with her.
MOT and Tax exempt, very cheap on insurance especially, if you become a member of the Military vehicle and/or Caravan Club. Everything that was Russian and not user friendly has been replaced with standard British fitting components, making this vehicle exceptionally user friendly now. She drives on Petrol or LPG, which can be changed with a flick of a switch in the cab.
Comes with a new, not mounted electric winch, there is also a fully working compressor on board which can self inflate all the tires out in the field, CTIS. The tires are in good condition, comes with a brand new spare tire on the back.
For enthusiasts, there are numerous original parts inside and outside from the time when this truck was used as a Russian Military Radio Truck. There is an original air filtration system that cleanses the air inside the butt and also protects from chemical, germ or nuclear pollution from the outside, however, this equipment is not mounted and needs upgrading.
Original paintwork on the vehicle as of yet, however, we are in the process of having her painted, she is semi amphibious, has bullet proof tires, is fully operational and ready to drive away
All the hard and heavy duty work has been done on this vehicle to the highest level and no expenses spared. All parts have been sourced to the highest quality.
The emphasis was put on the mechanical and electrical reliability for long distance travelling. The intention was for us to travel to Morocco and beyond, however, due to circumstantial changes we are now selling the truck
The butt therefore is still in its developing stages, there are the basic frameworks for a double bed and settee, kitchen unit with cupboards, stainless steel sink, cooker hob and grill. Comes with a domestic gas tank fitted for easy refuelling without having to carry gas bottles. We have been comfortably living in her for 9 months
New stereo with Sony head unit, vibe slick speakers, 2 competition level amps with one of them being an original West Coast amp, bass bin. Wood burner with flu fully working, solar panels, leisure battery. The butt is being refurbished as we speak including a shower unit, etc.
