Zil 131 russian truck, 6x6, decontamination unit, cold war for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.15) based on 872 votes

Here is my Zil 131 nuclear decontamination unit from the cold war times. ( complete with hoses/brushes etc)

it is a 1967 which is tax and mot exempt. Uk road registered in my name.

it is left hand drive with 6x6 and switchable to 4x4 drive. appx 700kms from new (seven hundred kms) thats around 430 miles.  

It has undergone a mild restoration including. full repaint in 2k. no filler was used at all. The bonnet and 1 door was replaced. the chasis has been wire brushed to remove dusty rust and painted in smooth hammerite. the wheels were done the same. The tyres are like new. i also have the spare wheel-not fitted or repainted yet.

The ignition system was replaced with new plugs. eads. izzy cap/arm. nbsp;coil etc to fix a misfire. she runs like a dream now and starts on the button.

The seats have been professionally recovered along with a new Uk made radiator. New brake hoses fitted ( made by Pirtek) and ALL fluids changed using modern equivilents but not Gl5.

Its also had a  new clutch plate. new H4 headlights with new mounting bowls and surrounds. New rear lights and front indicators.

The carb and fuel pump have been stripped and rebuilt using new seals etc. both fuel tanks were removed and acid stripped before being carbon epoxy sealed. All fuel lines have also been replaced as these react with todays modern fuel. New cav filter units were fitted to each tank.

The brakes were stripped and cleaned then reassembled-the shoes were like new under the dust and cobwebs.

All grease points were thoroughly greased up. The power steering works great and makes her very easy to drive.

All gears work fine as does the 6wd selector and hi/lo

I also have some new/used spares which are all included.

This has been a  No Expense Spared restoration and she is now ready to use/show. I have taken it to a few shows now and get loads of attention as soon as you get onto public roads.

Viewing is welcome by arrangement. cleared funds or cash on collection before vehicle changes hands.

Any questions please ask
