1958-1976: The Haflinger is a small light four wheel drive built by Steyr Daimler Puch of Graz, Austria. It can carry four, and can (just) be lifted, or at least man-handled, by four men which is useful on bad days.

Power comes from a 643cc, two-cylinder air-cooled engine. The basic vehicle is a soft-top, but a variety of special bodies and equipment were added by specialist firms. For example, Haflinger fire engines found a role in ski-resorts in the European Alps.
