New Unimog owner


I'm Patrick from The Netherlands.
I own a bunch of Suzuki 4x4's and an old Opel Blitz car transporter.

A couple of months ago I saw an Unimog 404 S equipped with a radio box for sale.
I rang the owner and learned he asked only € 500, for it.
Now that a Mercedes I can afford!

I bought the Mog without seeing it first.
Kind of an impulse buy!
I reckoned if it was nothing I could get my money back selling it in parts.

Fortunately I turned out all right!
It had low milage (8000 km) and little rust.
Especially for a vehicle from 1960!
The engine was running and the gearbox shifted.

Although I loved the radio box it was heavy and impractical.
I sold the box and bought the original bed of a troop carrier.

I'd like to keep the Mog stock looking with a few modifications.
Bigger tires (12.5 R20) and an engine swap (m114).

We'll see where it all ends...
