1996 Mercedes-Benz Unimog

$_57

Most of the Unimogs we write up are from the 60s and 70s due to ease of import and cost. They’re still capable but have interiors like the old Willys Jeep we used to have as an island bruiser. Fond memories of bouncing around and sore elbows indeed! Today’s Mog has come a little ways inside and looks similar to all the other drab-green examples we’ve seen, but a slightly modernized grill hints at much newer running gear. Unfortunately, the cost for this newer 90s model is not just higher monetarily, but also brings the inability to register it for the road in the US. Canadians can rejoice or Americans can plan on having it as a badass farm vehicle, but part of the allure of the Mog for me would be to see the terrified looks on passing motorists’ faces as I towered above them. Alas, the price demands this Unimog be seen as a useful truck as opposed to an awesome toy.

Apparently this one is for doing yoga on, which is not exactly how I’d use my Unimog. Quite a catch-22 that the Unimogs that can break 50mph are the ones you can’t register. Considering so many models from 40-50 years ago are still running, I’d probably go the cheaper route and get one that costs 1/3 of this price, can drive on the road, and may be more simple to work on overall. The only people I’ve known to actually BUY a Unimog used it as their farm vehicle, but the occasional trip to the store was hilarious and well worth the (cheaper) price of admission.
