Bombardier VW Iltis: Florida Jeep

bombardier

This Bombardier VW Iltis could be a case of a seller who doesn’t know what he has, leading to a good deal for someone who does. Listed on Florida’s craigslist for $3,500 as a “jeep” there are no other details offered but the pictures are at least helpful. I can see not knowing what this bare-bones 4×4 is if it’s just been used as a hunting or farm vehicle all of its life, but given the off-road capabilities these military-grade trucks possess, I have to imagine at least one previous owner knew what he or she was buying. I’m curious how this example ended up in Florida since they were built for Canadian defense forces and most examples still reside up north. Buy this one and avoid the hassle and expense of importation. Thanks to Barn Finds reader Nathan for the find.

    Jeff’s writeup of August 15th explained these little beasts a bit. The Thing meets the Audi but how do you pronounce the offspring? liltis sountis like a disease but it’s polecat in German. So it could be either a skunk or a weasel?
    “Want to sell Jeep” has got to be one of the least helpful Craigslist ads ever! Do you think you’d really want to meet this seller?

    This is what the Canadian troops drove in Kandahar Province till they got at least armoured G wagons.

    I would love this VW! Thanks for putting it in my head, 6 hours away, I wonder if he would trade? I would be the envy of VW nuts everywhere, especially my Tech Sgt son in Ft Wayne IN
