I am more used to the gassers and the DW8, which were not so much more complex than their predecessors.

But you could do anything with it, damn handy cars. It can be kept on the road fairly cheap.
Yes indeed. Twenty years ago I recall seeing soldiers of the Belgian army driving around in these (badged as Peugeot Partner). Think they were painted olive drab; similar to the Bundeswehr's matt olive Mk.2 Golfs.

Had those been fitted with the Dangel 4WD system, that would be interesting to say the least.

O yes indeed. You still find them for sale, all with the 1900 cc non turbo diesel engine and +200k miles on it.


And its predecessor, the CitroŽn C15, is still in use



Big advantage of these army vehicles is that they are well maintained.
