Pinzgauer in Thor


Post by NotAMog » Tue May 10, 2011 8:07 pm

The movie Thor which came out last weekend prominently features a Pinzgauer in many of the scenes on Earth. Expedition Imports in Vallejo built 4 identical trucks for the movie. They started life as 710K hard sided radio trucks and were modified with a fiberglas grill to look like the later 716K turbo diesel powered trucks. Here are some links that cover the mods and fabrication they did. ... =17&t=6333 ... =17&t=6335 ... =17&t=6334 ... =17&t=6336

There are lots (relatively speaking :D ) of Pinzgauer owners that hope they will make some of the mods available to the public. The front and rear bumpers look pretty cool.

Looks like the Pinzgauer's 15 minutes of fame has arrived on the big screen... :lol:
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear really bright, until they start talking
