This problem was solved by restoring the block to the initial specification.

Due to the fact that the 959 S has not been driven for a long time, it had some malfunctions, because sports models need constant operation.

If this happens, however, the transmission and chassis are completely replaced with new ones.

To avoid various breakdowns, it is recommended to drive at least 100 kilometers per month.

The presented 959 has been deprived of electric window lifters, automatic air conditioner and central locking.

The rear seats and even the mirror on the passenger side were removed. The model also lost the self-levelling suspension from the original version.

The Sport version also has air conditioning, power windows and central locking.

But it doesn’t have rear seats and a side mirror from the passenger’s side. Due to this the truck weighs only 1 350 kg.
