Unhappy '75 421 For Sale

Hi Guys, I am in the unfortunate position to be able to offer my '75 421 for sale. Its in nice shape, runs and drives fine. Im the second owner, the first was the state of NH. I have gone through it mechanically and started restoration. Like any 35 yr old UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät it has a couple of shortcomings that don't come through in the pix/videos but I will be happy to share everything I know with you or anyone you know that is interested in talking about it. I am really hoping this a temporary separation from benefits of being a member of the Moging community.

I have created a Google site with Pix and video to try and capture the basics of this machine. For Sale (75 Unimog 421)

I am letting all here know about it, and I have posted it on the Unimog Exchange. I am hoping to hook up with some one already in our community and not have to deal with the Ebay yahoos. I would welcome any questions or comments!

Thanks for all you advice and colorful stories over the last several years.

Ken

HI John,

Thanks. I had started down the long slow road to functional restoration. It was in nice shape when I got it ans I just started picking away at it. It actually has a 616-911 motor in it. Been nice and reliable for me, and you CANT get a speeding ticket in a 421

Yes up and running well for me now. Very sharp looking truck, especially one owned by the state.

Thanks for the heads up. Its fixed.

In reply to your question it is carries an official State of NH safety inspection. It meets enough of the requirements to get it though. I suppose by the "letter of the law" it might not make it (wheels past fender and no rear bumper) but because it is stock and so unique the stations I have taken it to have not had a problem putting a sticker on it.
