1965 Unimog 404.115 TLF-8 - $9750


I am putting one of my beloved trucks up for sale. This is an extremely rare truck, you won't find another one for sale. I will spare you telling you what the truck has. I am going to assume all interested buyers have already done some homework about Unimog 404's. If not, here is a fairly comprehensive article: Please try back later

This particular 404 is the more rare and desirable Hard Cab model. It was originally a Forestry Firefighting truck in South West Germany. It spent 30 years on the job before being decommissioned in 1995. It was imported in 2000 by Offroad Imports of Rhode Island. This truck received a new factory engine from Eurotruck Importers approx. 3000 kilometers ago. The truck has 29,600 original kilometers which is just over 18,000 miles. Most of these Unimog 404's spent their life sitting around waiting for action (Military, Firefighting, Maintenance, etc). I have many thousands invested into maintenance and TLC.

*12.5R20 Michelin XL Tires (A size up from factory, includes two spares)
*Larger "Tropical" Cooling System
*Complete "Civilian" Ignition System w/ Electronic Ignitor (Allows for replacement parts to come from Civilian Model vehicles, runs much smoother)
*Standard Tow Receiver mounted below Military Pintle
*Transmission Temperature Gauge

Maintenance Highlights:
*All Fluids Freshly Changed (Engine, Air Cleaner, Transmission, Axles, Portals, etc)
*Recent Factory Engine & Clutch
*Recent Paint
*New Generator, Starter, and Voltage Regulator
*Freshly Rebuilt Carburetor

The truck runs and drives great, and has no issues. I have owned the truck almost a year and have gone through the truck top to bottom. Everything works. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere. I drive the truck on a regular basis. Around town, to dinner, to the shops, or through the swamp. It will take you anywhere.

Any questions feel free to contact me via E-mail or Phone (please E-Mail for Phone number, I will respond quickly. Thanks!) I am willing to help with shipping or deliver it within a few hundred miles.
