well, some folks may call me nuts. But I did it and here is my "new" 1250. Right now en route from Baltimore to Colorado.
I am hoping not to start a controversial discussion about self-importing or better buy a newer rig.
Going to restore the girl as I did with other oldies :)

Eh, everyone who's on this forum is nuts, we are all into high (relatively speaking) speed german tractors with quirks and all that goes along with them. Welcome to the club! Reach out for any and all help you need sourcing parts or information and someone will help no matter the process. Congrats on the purchase, looking forward to the rebuild saga.

Love that the first posted picture is of the Unimog being dwarfed by it's dock partner, the ginormous dump truck.

Thanks - I will take inventory when I get her on Tuesday. So far, before shipping, the brakes have been done and got new tires. Plus 4 snowchains.
Next will be all the fluids. Well, intro to the neighborhood. ( aka bragging). Everyone wants to see the snowplow for the next season
And, I got I guess 10kg of (shop) manuals from www.Buchundbild.de. But I forgot to order the owners manual - maybe the original one is still in the vehicle

This here is a bit different than the Unimog I drove with the German Red Cross ( 1954 "Funkkoffer" ). I for sure remember shifting - I you'd fail to raise your elbow ... welcome to a bad encounter with the back cab wall :-(

Shift is clear, next to the right fwd/reverse, the 4 levers in the center, I think are the 4 hydraulic circuits. The others, I worst case have to figure out
