German, Swiss-made horse-drawn ammunition cart - genuine WWI or WWII vintage

A genuine German WWI or WWII utility vehicle intended as ammunition transportation. Made in Switzerland, the cart comes complete with horse side shafts and is supplied with the original accessories/tools.

The quality and build strength of this truck is phenomenal, and bearing in mind its age, it is in amazing condition. Having no doubt been stored in a dry warehouse for the past 100 or so years it is in superb state with the tyres still able to take pressure and hold it. In fact the tyres must have been replaced whilst still in storage as they are almost perfect.

Horse drawn cart that would be suitable for private property use, or of course re-enactment groups.

The cart is not intended for towing on the road and was designed for horse or man-powered movement at slow speed only.

HEAVY ITEM! WE SUGGEST THIS ITEM IS COLLECTED IN PERSON BECAUSE OF THE WEIGHT AND BULK. IN THIS CASE, WE WILL THEN REFUND THE SHIPPING CHARGE.

If collection is inconvenient, we will deliver to the road side adjacent to the delivery property, but you will require heavy lifting equipment if you are then going to move the cart on its pallet. Of course, you could put the wheels on and roll it away otherwise.
