Does anyone know what the pluses and minuses are of the Simca Unimogs and why? I saw an ad in Hemmings for the Marmon-Simca Unimogs w/ V8's for $4K + shipping from England. Is this a good deal or can you buy the Mercedes Unimogs in Europe for about this price as well? If so does anyone have any experience in buying directly from Europe?? Any ballpark estimates on shipping from Europe to the US and tariffs that will need to be paid?<br><br><hr size=7 width=75%><p>

True it does resemble a Mog but if you look closely, say under the body you will find the traditional leaf spring and live axle setup. They are equiped with the ever modifiable flathead Ford V-8. Not only will the Simca travel faster than a Unimog 404s, which it resembles, parts will be easier to find. I hope this has helped you.<br>Jim<br><br><br><hr size=7 width=75%><p>

By the way, they r very strongly built and definitely have got coil springs all round and air brakes, good luck steve<p><br><br><hr size=7 width=75%><p>
