just wondering ....

What is the going price for a unimog? I am kinda looking for an older military vehicle for something fun to restore. I am looking in to older Jeeps or Dodge trucks. But the unimog caught my eye as being unique.

Re: just wondering ....

$20K++, seems like a really high estimate. I have seen some in auto books and on hotmail classified for any where from $1500-$11,000, saw one that was restored Beligum army model for $5000. They are around but not alot of them. Also, there isn't really a demand for them so don't thing to high until you look.

Re: just wondering ....

We found ours in fairly good condition. Didn't know what to expect. Had to get the head reconditioned. Very minor body work. Once we accepted it wasn't a highway vehicle, it is the coolest thing going. The badest truck around here. After the boys have been out to play and are all stuck, we amber up and pull them all out. They all scream No Fair! We got it for $5000. The showroom conditon ones will cost the $20K and new ones will be going for $100K

Re: just wondering ....

Unimogs are really unique. They do not have a typical frame and suspension. Everything is hinged off of the transfer case like forward and reverse "Ys". It is really very flexible for being so big. The tires are 18 wheeler size. It is HUGE. There are gears just like in a semi. Built in air system (normally locked). All drive lines are enclosed. Geared axles like a Hummer. Fantastic "extras" like a hand operated hydraulic brake which is activated by a passenger in the event the driver is shot. M-16 or equivalent holder behind the windshield. Our main problem was getting past the Bondo to see what the body really was like.

They sell swiss models. My friend who was in the gulf war claims they suck but I think he inhaled too much iraqi gas.
