1963 Mercedes Benz Unimog up for grabs on eBayJuly 10, 2012 by: Nishant Panwar
Mercedes Benz a brand that speaks for itself and needs no introduction. U might have seen many agricultural vehicles, off roaders and if you really are interested in any of those beasts then the legend – the Unimog can be yours.
The Mercedes Benz Unimog that was originally designed to be used as agricultural vehicles is the only other off-roader besides the G-Class that is legendary. The first of these kinds were equipped with a mounting bracket in front and a hitch in the rear.
The first Unimog 404 S, built in 1955, had the Federal West Germany army as their main customer. The army was rearming itself for the war. Its design and the way it was built with low gearing and chunky tires made it to go into most rampy and deserted military bases.
The 404 S was the most popular Unimog that was produced in between 1955 and 1980. A total of 62,242 of these mean machine monsters were built. The supposed to be rust free Unimog was built in 1963 and is currently resting in Broadalbin, New York.
The monster is waiting for its new owner who can take it home and tame it. Well it can be yours also if you wish to bid for it on e-bay and I am not at all joking.
