OT-64 SKOT

Price from:
$ 9 463

Purchase the huge OT-64 Czechoslovak wheeled personnel carrier.


Currently on stock: Some of the OT-64 vehicles currently offered are generally in an average condition, having been on the rain for a while. The OT-64 transporters on sale  need a general reconstruction. Nonetheless, all the OT-64 carriers we sell are complete and mostly fully equipped. Ot-64 trucks both with and without a turret now available for you to buy.

Price for vehicles overhauled as on the pictures (3 months of works): around USD 15.000 without new tyres. New tyres about USD 600 per piece.

Repairing an OT-64 armoured personnel carrier.


OT-64 SKOT is the collectors first choice in large 8x8 APCs (as compared to the BRDM among the 4x4 ones). Why? Firstly – they are still available in large amounts the purchasing price thus being quite low. Secondly, its engine is almost the same as in the Tatra 138 – still largely in use – thus the spares are cheap and accessible. Thirdly, its rear door and the opening roof make it the easiest to access APC.


The majority of OT-64 was produced in the 70's. Still, the chassis is practically a copy of a German war model. The legendary air-driven Wilson gear-box, durable and making the driving comfortable - dates even before the war (made under a Rolls-Royce licence from the 30's). Thus, logically, some spares has to be manufactured.

The Polish armour does by no mean fit the requirements of a modern armouring. Not fulfilling even "class 2" of the STANAG-4569 scale it is not considered weapon in Germany.  


As concerns floating, given their age, we generally do not command our clients to swim with their OT-64. Still the floating propellers are working. If required we can change the the chassis man rubber parts that have to be manufactured.

Most of the vehicles MORTAR  have almost zero mileage yet they have been standing outside for a long time. This makes the overhaul specific. 

The are about 500 hours of works to be conducted at each OT-64. A fully repaired vehicle without a turret costs roughly 12.000 euros.  A turret is roughly 2.000 extra. Vehicles with no paint cost 2.000 euros less. All pricing without VAT. 


First of all, the engine is taken out and the vehicle is sand-blasted.

The basic paint is applied.

Even on the OT-64 the might be some welding to be done - yet an argon super strong welder is to be used.

The engine out, an occasion to fix the "oil economy" (the oil tank, pump, lines and gaskets) is at hand.

 Same for the air system.

And the clutch - the valve has to be given new.

DSC06591

In between the air-cooled Tatra engine is taken out. Fully dissembled, brushed, polished, re-sealed. The insets and many other parts have to be changed for new ones.

The hardest job comes with the wheel part. They have to be taken apart completely

Often the wheel bearing have to be changed.  Always for the the O-rings.

At last, it's really a lot of bearings, seals and O-rings changed - this is a sum of one vehicle.

DSC06970

All hoses have to be changed.

DSC06758_1

The brake shoes have to be de-greased and polished.

DSC06777_1

The brake cylinders have to be re-sealed and often brushed with a milling cutter. In such a case new valves have to be lathed.

DSC06968

DSC06954

A major task is the central tyre-inflation system (CTIS). The O-rings have to manufactured. 

DSC06938

DSC06939

All fixed, the wheel can be assembled again.

On the chassis, the differential locks are re-sealed.

Wheel part ready, time to fix all the small matters: door seals, air lines, periscopes, wipers, electricity.

Now we can paint the inside.

Gearbox and differential repaired, it is time to do the final paint and the vehicle can leave. Normally, we leave the used tyres on - they are not used but old and a bit mouldered -  this can be generally fixed by the CTIS.

Czech road-registration of OT-64 SKOT APCs

For our client we assure classic car registration of OT-64 SKOT carriers in the Czech Republic. The costs are roughly EUR 1.500.
