If anyone wants to piss around about this being an auction, and being posted, and somehow being unfair, spare me.

U1300 Unimog with HIAB crane U1300 Unimog with HIAB crane | eBay

This is one of the nicer trucks I have seen on fleabay. The crane and tipper is a nice combo.

I would rip the photos and post them, but I am not that computer savvy.

Has tipper bed, just -cough- needs the tipper cylinder. To me no cylinder means no tipper. Off hand what would the out of pocket be on the tipper cylinder?

i looked at this truck he had another 1300 with a plow that was red. I dont know all there is to know about these trucks but I'm pretty sure its bigger than a 1300, sounds dumb but it definitely was bigger than the other 1300 he had as far as height and width. It is very very very clean, the owner was very honest and forthcoming about the red 1300 he had as well.

I'm not singling this particular one out, but as a general point, why is that when anyone is selling a Unimog or Pinzgauer, they take three or four crappy photos from a long way back, out of focus, and then upload them at the smallest resolution possible? Do none of us own a camera made after about 1995? Are we all on 56k dial-up modems?

To make it even more certain not to sell, most people seem to put a description of about three lines and then ask for a big sum of money. I just don't get it. Most auctions on ebay for a $10 item have better photos and descriptions.

Some don't even go that far- they will just put on the exchange "email me for photos or if you have any questions". Is someone going to buy without the photos or asking questions? Can we not figure out how to take proper photos and put them on the inter webs?

It's driving me nuts!

Not getting at that one auction, just talking in general.

Not just mogs, it seem to be endemic with those selling less than common items. A friend was looking at a '68 IH Carryall and the seller had 4 photos total and the description. "1968 IH Carryall 4x4 SBC power." :banghead:

Huh, never heard of that guy before. Anyone had experience or dealings with him?

He's got a nice U1750 L/38 firemog for sale....



When I was first looking at / for a unimog, maybe 2004/5, I contacted him. No voicemail, no cell phone, limited email, and sporadic pictures. Very nice to talk to when I got him, and knew a lot about mogs. His website has gone for more than a few months without update in the past. Curious as to how he got the newer mogs into the states. I think he may know the other Tennessee mogger here.
