If you’re getting tired of all the run-of-the-mill, everyday vehicle options out there such as – you know – cars and trucks, this Vancouver Craigslist posting may be the welcome change you’ve been looking for.

According to the posting, someone in West Vancouver is selling a “fully operational Czech produced post-war copy of the famous German WW2 SdKFz 251 halftrack.”

Beyond just the look of this ride, however, the vehicle comes with its own little slice of history.



The vehicle is “Ex-Czech Army service,” and a “veteran of military TV and film productions.”

It’s also “fully operational” and “actually bulletproof.”

For those looking to accessorize, the vehicle also “mounts MG34 or MG42 machine guns front and rear.” These, however, are “not included” as part of the sale.



So is the right vehicle for you?

Well, that depends on whether or not you’re looking for something that is “definitely one of a kind,” and you are the “person that has everything.”

Need more convincing? Well, according to the ad, this vehicle is four-wheel drive, air-cooled, diesel, manual transmission, with enough room to seat you and 10 of your friends. It’s also “the ultimate airsoft accessory.”

The seller states that the vehicle is “for the serious collector only,” and that a $500 non-refundable deposit for a test drive will be applied to the price if purchased.

So how much will all this cost you? $75,000 USD according to the ad – although “interesting partial trades [will be] considered.”


So there you have it. An interesting trade or a cool $75K and this beast could be yours. And if you’re still on the fence, the ad notes this is a unique, worthy investment, because “anyone can buy a Lamborghini or Ferrari.”

And while the seller states that the vehicle is “not a controlled good and no special permits are required,” it’s definitely not something we’d recommend driving down Highway 1 during rush hour.
