Restoration of Ex-
Australian Army Haflinger ARN 101-820 (and a family of possums)

By Rick Krassoi, February 2013

Ex-Australian Army Haflinger ARN (Army Registration Number) 101-820 was one of 46 purchased by the Australian Army in 1966. They were of unique and distinctive form, immediately recognisable by the pioneer tool holders on the front panel and rear side-board and raised air intake scoop on the rear engine bay door. They were manufactured in the final year of Series 1 production, but were equipped with tubular front and rear ‘bumpers’ and front cabin hood frame used in Series II model.

Welcome to the Haflinger Club of Australia. We are perfectly ‘un-official’ as our club has no formal membership structure, fees, office bearers or committees, just a group of Haflinger and Steyr-Puch enthusiasts who wish to share their interest with like-minded souls. Whilst the marque is best represented by the Haflinger in Australia, we also wish to welcome enthusiasts of other Steyr-Puch vehicles including Pinzgauer, Puch scooters, mopeds and motorcycles, and even Steyr tractors

So 2, 4 and 6 wheelers! We could call it the Steyr Puch Club of Australia, but that dosnt easily roll off the Aussie tongue.

This site is primarily about the conservation of the Steyr-Puch marque in Australia. This means inspiring and assisting owners to conserve or restore our vehicles by sharing information and experiences . This may then allow us to enjoy our vehicles by getting together occasionally, perhaps through a Treffen. The former Haflinger Club of Australia, which folded in the late 1980s, was primarily concerned with the enjoyment of their road-worthy vehicles.
