Description

Lot #44 - Wonderfully custom restored with the Dakar desert theme. This Unimog runs, drives and looks amazing. The Unimog with its extreme off-road capabilities are often used in jungles, mountains and deserts as military vehicles, firefighters, expedition campers and even in competitions like truck trials and Dakar rally raids as this one was designed. These vehicles have amazing climbing capabilities and can climb a 70% percent grade hauling as much as 1.5 tons and can then descend down a 90% grade with no fear of rolling over. This truck still has all of its retractable radio tables and infantry benches. The exterior paint on this truck is in exceptional condition and the interior and retractable canvas top are also in great shape. It was also seen on the History Channel on the show Pawn Stars episode "what the truck".
