1975 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406
The Mercedes-Benz Unimog has been going strong since the days of WWII, and even now in 2015, it’s still a sought after machine for many. Problem is it’s tough to find any of these older gems for sale – at least ones that aren’t beat to shreds. That’s exactly what we have here, a pristine 1975 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406 for sale.
This blue beauty is still sporting the original 84 horsepower 5.7-liter six cylinder diesel engine, which is currently sitting at 1,478 hours of operation. A true go-anywhere vehicle, Unimog’s feature portal gear axles on all four corners along with a ladder frame chassis that’s designed to flex without damage while tackling rugged terrain. There were only 353 406 models produced (all of which were built between 1974 and 1986), and this one in particular had some minor restoration work done back in 2007 to bring it up to tip top shape. This Benz will be auctioned off on March 28th in Stuttgart, and should fetch anywhere from €40,000 to €50,000. [Purchase]
