It's currently located in Switzerland.
There are now 46 official Mercedes Classic partners in Germany, and one of them is Lorinser Classic from the city of Waiblingen. In addition to classic roadsters, convertibles, coupes, and limousines, the company's vintage car inventory also includes an increasing number of G-Classes.
Almost all of them originally come from the Swiss army stocks, where they were not sold as Mercedes but under the Puch brand. In addition to the standard versions, a motorhome conversion and a few "restomods", there is also a particularly interesting special vehicle currently on offer. It is a rather rare ambulance from the inventory of the Federal Department of Defense and Civil Protection of Switzerland.
Despite its age, the Puch 290 GD ambulance with a first registration from July 1994 is in a very good and original overall condition, and that’s mainly because of its relatively low mileage of only 2,796 miles (4,500 kilometers). Lorinser wants €79,900 or approximately $89,500 at the current exchange rates. The price includes the original medical equipment, as well as the factory-fitted dual air conditioning system.

The vehicle is powered by a 2.5-liter five-cylinder diesel with 95 hp (71 kW) and a peak torque of 142 lb-ft (192 Nm). Power reaches all four wheels through a five-speed manual transmission, while there are also differential locks on the front and rear axles. In the event of a flat tire, a full spare wheel is also available on the roof rack.
This 26-year-old ambulance is still equipped for all off-road challenges, as it should ultimately be able to rescue injured and sick people on any terrain.
