A few years ago we made trip to Germany to visit the Audi, BMW, Porsche and Mercedes Benz museums, and while at the Mercedes Benz's very impressiive showcase, there was a very unique vehicle showcased in the corner of the last floor. It was a 1948 Unimog 25 PS.
We now see that Hyman is offering this gorgeous 1974 Unimog for sale and it could not be in better condition because it has been completely redone to show the truck's condition with beautiful paint in champagne gold over black fenders.
The interior has late model Mercedes bucket seats. Huge 20 inch silver steel industrial wheels are set off by orange inserts around the six securing lugs and wear 365/80 Continental off-road tires. The bed tilts both to the rear and to the side. Power comes from a Mercedes-Benz diesel engine equipped with a six-speed manual transmission and a transfer case that give all six speeds in both forward and reverse. A chrome exhaust stack and an engine air intake snorkel suggest it could be operated through water above the window sills.
There also is a Warn front winch. The bed has a show bar above the cab top on which is mounted a train air horn powered by dual compressors and an accumulator tank.
Unimog is Mercedes-Benz's range of four wheel drive utility vehicles built for rough, off-road environments in farming, ranching and exploration.
