The exterior is finished in red, and retains markings from the Austrian fire department where the truck spent its service life. 4×4 LTs are equipped with 6-lug 16″ split-rim steel wheels, which are fitted with newer Michelin all-terrain tires.This 1988 Volkswagen LT40 4×4 is a former Austrian KLFA unit designed for fighting Alpine fires and small fires in other hard-to-reach areas. The truck was taken out of service in 2017, and subsequently purchased and imported to the United States by the seller in 2018.

Power is provided by a 2.4L turbodiesel inline-six paired to a dogleg 5-speed manual transmission. Just 1,250 4×4 LT series trucks and vans were built, and are equipped with a New Process transfer case, heavy duty Hurth axles, and dual locking differentials. The firefighting conversion was handled by Rosenbauer, and includes a gas-powered Zeigler pump, hoses, valves, and a 400-liter water tank. Now in Georgia, this LT40 is offered by the selling dealer with import documentation and a clean Georgia title.

The rear storage areas are concealed by silver rolling doors, affording access from three sides of the vehicle.
The fire fighting Zeigler water pump is installed on a sliding carrier, and can pump either from a remote water source or from an onboard 400 liter water tank. The seller notes that the water tank is still full of water from Austria, and has not been dumped since his acquisition.
A suite of valves, hoses, gates, and other firefighting equipment is pictured in the gallery.
The front seats and rear benches are trimmed in patternedbrown vinyl, matched by smoother brown vinyl on the door panels and other interior surfaces. Two benches are present in the rear seating area, and face towards one another across a central passage. Several storage cubbies are present in the rear cabin.

n addition to the standard instrumentation, the LT40 has a selection of warning labels indicating the vehicle’s critical dimensions. 34k kilometers (~21k miles) are shown on the mechanical odometer.

The truck is powered by a 2.4-liter turbodiesel inline-six, and sends power to all four wheels via a 5-speed dogleg manual transmission, and a dual-range New Process transfer case. Super heavy duty Hurth axles with locking differentials are fitted front and rear, and are rated for four tons. An oil and filter change was performed 300km ago. The seller notes that the top speed is approximately 65 mph, and cruising speeds of 55-60 mph are possible.
Additional photos of the underside are provided, as are photos of the cab floors with the rubber floor mats removed. A walkaround and drive video as well as well over 100 photos upon request.
