A rescue vehicle has never looked as heroic or Herculean as this 1972 Pinzgauer 710M SARPinz. The brute overlander is all business as the star member of the Search and Rescue team of King County, Washington.

Starting out as a first-generation Pinzgauer constructed at Steyr-Daimler-Puch — the same factory that builds the Mercedes G-Wagon — this truck was transformed into a rescue warrior. The SARPinz is powered by a 2.7-liter motor with 130 hp, but it’s a 4×4 built to crawl, using a special portal axle system sitting well above the wheels for huge ground clearance. Initially, it was operated by the Swiss Army but owner Brandon Powell picked it up in San Diego and gave it a monster makeover. The rugged rig can climb just about anything and fits up to 10 passengers, making it an ideal all-terrain rescue truck. The exploration vehicle also took home the award for Overland Expo West’s Cool Ride back in 2017.
