Never heard of these before, here's one that went for $5500, it's gas though.

his 1981 Volkswagen Iltis is a military-spec example powered by a 1.7L water-cooled inline-four backed by a 4-speed manual gearbox. The Iltis was developed by Audi and built by Volkswagen for use by the German military from 1978-1988. It utilized a 4WD system based around components from the Audi 100, which led to the Quattro all-wheel drive system that debuted in 1980. This Type 183 was built in West Germany and was acquired by the seller six months ago.
