Gelandewagen received a second life for the Swiss army.

The German tuning studio Lorinser recently unveiled their new project, a pickup truck based on the meticulously restored Puch G, which is the twin brother of the Mercedes G-Class. The model, which was chosen as the source, was assembled in 1993 and was used for a long time in the Swiss army, after which it was bought by Lorinser among several other similar “veterans”. There is information that during the restoration and tuning process, the Puch G lost its original superstructure, and its cabin was additionally insulated and received a heated rear window.

In addition, the car body has received a cargo platform with a durable protective coating and a cover that protects it from atmospheric precipitation. The masters removed the old paint from the body of the army car, and the damage was carefully aligned, then the car was painted in a matte protective color.

The seats were upholstered in Alcantara. As for the pickup units, they have also undergone a complete restoration. This Puch G, factory index 230 GE, received a 116-horsepower petrol unit and a 4-speed automatic.
