VW iltis.

Location: Hubbards, Halifax

I have done research on the Iltis before.

it all on what you want to do with it?

truck= good idea the fact that you can buy hundreds of trucks for VERY cheap.

the has a very low top end speed, so you wont be down the 100 series highway at

Dont get me wrong, I have wanted one, but there parts (lack of) availability, and of the features, limit the usefulness. You cna buy a GMC Samaurai, or LAda for $500

A guy in BC who sells these.


1976 The West German Forces sends out proposals for a vehicle that can carry a payload both on and off road. and Volkswagen build prototypes.

The Volkswagen Iltis is chosen for 8,800 vehicles are produced 1977 to 1981.

1981 purchases all the rights to the Iltis, with the tooling equipment, Volkswagen.

1983 DND orders Iltis from Bombadier.

Belgium orders 2,500

1985 Vehicles delivered to


The Iltis has a 1714cc cylinder OHC engine which 75 bhp @ 5,000 rpm. The only Canadian army vehicle to use gas rather than diesel.

Drive Train

The Iltis has a transmission with 5 speeds. only gears 1-4 are used for operation. There is a movable on the the gear shift to access the gear which is, in reality, not a gear but a super low first

The Iltis also has selectable There is a small lever on the between the driver’s and passenger’s located next to the passenger’s that shifts between 4wd and This switching is purely When you put the Iltis into 2wd it into front-wheel-drive. Engaging the 4wd will engage the back

Between the driver’s and passenger’s located next to the driver’s is another small lever switches the differential lock in and This switching is purely Diff lock is normally in the out position.

All gears, including low first, are available in 2 or 4wd. In diff lock is also in 2 or 4wd.


Volkswagen Iltis

The Iltis has semi-elliptical leaf springs double acting shock

It looks like it has four-wheel suspension, but with springs the width of the body instead of the coils. The Iltis also has the tucked up into the body smaller axles going up to it like the M998. This it much better ground (an extra 2 over the M38A1).


Now as to the Iltis. I don’t much of it. It is a very complex mechanically compared to a M38A1. the drive train with the and axles. The M38A1 had a much system. Granted the A1 rides a lot but it isn’t a Range Rover. The is a constant 4×4 and disengaging the 4 drive, while it could be is not recommended by DND or the driver’s handbook. is how I was taught on my conversion course Lifting the collar on the shift isn’t so you can shift to low range, so you can engage the reverse gear.
