1969 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 404

894706-35-large

We’ve seen some differing takes on the Unimog recently, including a more modern 90s example and a nice change of color on a white 416. Those were cool, but today’s rings truest to the original inspiration of my Mog love, owned by my childhood best friend’s dad (also owner of an Estoril E36 M3 sedan and a strong collection of Ducatis). When it comes to affordability, even restored versions of the barebones original 404 are way up there when it comes to cool, weird, classic 4x4s. For less money than a brand-new, 2WD, no-option pickup, you could scare every other car off the road. These are certainly a want and not a need, but their impracticality in everyday life (or at least my everyday life) is strongly countered by rather low prices.

This looks exactly like the one we used to rumble to the baseball fields in for a little lazy summertime homerun derby with some beers provided by my older brother. If you live in an area with space (not the Bay Area), why NOT have one of these out back when you can probably get it for less than $15k?

  1. A great article on Unimogs (also check out their website and look at the new ones – they’re sick!).

    http://m.automobilemag.com/features/news/1403-ive-died-and-gone-to-unimog-heaven/

    The attachments available for them make them possibly the most versatile “work truck” ever…from street cleaner to snow thrower to back hoe, etc, etc, just crazy!

  2. I want one! I have no need, nor do I know what I would do with it, but I want one.

  3. I thought to myself, “I wonder if Arnold Schwarzenegger owns one of these?” Of course he does/did.

    Also look at pic of random girl physically clinging to it! Talk about a chick magnet. Lol
