1963 MB Unimog “ex-military troop carrier”


VIN: 02228396

Reimel Motorcars offers this rare 1963 Mercedes-Benz Unimog for sale.This version is covered in Light Khaki exterior paint with Black interior. The Unimog features a 6-speed manual transmission (2 for reverse) and 4-wheel independent suspension. According to the previous owner, this Unimog is an ex-military troop carrier. It was imported from Germany to the US by a military equipment collector in the 1990’s. Unimog’s are very uncommon in the United States because of differing regulations and requirements – most of those available in the United States have been imported by dealers or enthusiasts.

The name “Unimog” is an acronym for “Universal-Motor-Gerat,” with Gerat meaning device in German. Mercedes-Benz first produced the Unimog to aid in agricultural use, as it provided much needed power take-off to operate heavy machinery in fields or forests. It also featured permanent AWD with equally sized wheels and could be driven at higher speeds than standard farm tractors. The Unimog has very high ground clearance and a flexible frame (acting as part of the suspension) which allows the vehicle to drive comfortably and capably over extreme terrain. Mercedes-Benz still produces the Unimog and the model is often used as a military vehicle, firetruck, snowplow, and a road-rail vehicle.

This vehicle is being offered As-Is with No Warranty. Reimel Motorcars encourages a pre-purchase inspection be performed on all vehicles offered to showcase their conditions.
