'78 Mog 416.141 DoKa
That truck was built on the base of the U1550L that was for sale in Alaska, some years ago.
The owner, unfortunately, died in the crash of of his experimental plane.
The information I have, which I believe to be reliable, is that he ignored all of the realities
Of the flexible UNIMOG frame,and proceeded to have the van body built on the U1550L
Chassis , without the proper engineering.
But, I do note a Gap between the Factory DOKA roof line, and the extension....
Still,I believe the source that Said that the flexible frame was basically ignored during the build.
I warned the owner of u1200 about this and he thought I was out of my mind. Saw the same truck a year later and they were still latched. I guess the buckled sheet metal wasn't enough to convince him.Yep- I hope not, but it sounds likely.
When you consider that a SBU will buckle the cowl
Sheet metal , just by driving around with the Cab Tilt
Brackets locked, and the cowl is only a couple of feet
From the pivots.... Well, there is a lot more leverage
Available from the seats aft, so I think things are
Destined to get bent.
