Dating from 1958 to 1976 and built by
Steyr Daimler Puch,
the Haflinger is a pocket - size 4WD that four strong men can lift.
Mechanical muscle usually means increased
weight which can leave wheels churning impotently in mud or sand.
The Haflinger took the other tack -
adding lightness means the vehicle often walks through trouble
and, if not, it is at least easy to extract on those
"bad 4WD days".
min width... -->
Small size and a short wheel-base mean a small load-tray
unless you go for a forward-control design.
That's the Haflinger, logical really.
Unfortunately those attributes, while making a very capable off-roader,
made it expensive and less endearing on the highway,
so it never sold in large numbers.
Today Haflingers are collected by enthusiasts.
Anti-freeze - not me!
