Auction Block: 1983 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406.101

Mar 9, 2016

In post-WWII Germany there happened to be a significant demand for road-friendly 4×4 vehicles that also served well as agricultural and utility transports. So, in typical German tradition, Mercedes-Benz created something unusual for the time, but still highly utilitarian; the Unimog. Now, this 1983 Unimog 406.101, one of just 353, is up for sale as part of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Sale to be held on March 19th

Built for tackling anything its path, the Unimog’s frame is flexible, helping to improve traction on uneven terrain. Meanwhile, the axles have been outfitted with portal gears to let both the axles and transmission sit higher than the centerline of the wheels, ensuring that ground clearance was never an issue. The Unimog was soon deployed around the world for military and policing use, border control and ski patrols. If there was anything that needed to be moved, cleared, or controlled, it’s a safe bet the Unimog was not too far away. Estimated value is between $49,000 and $71,000, which places it in the same category as your traditional luxury SUV. [Purchase]
