Car description

Green Exterior with Grey Interior; Folding Top Cab; 5.7-Liter Inline-6 Diesel; Manual Transmission; 4-Wheel Drive; 20 Forward Gears and 8 Reverse Gears; 15,000-lb Front Winch; 9,000-lb Rear Winch; Air/Hydraulic Brakes; Compressed Air Tank for Pneumatic Tools, etc.; Drop-side Bed with Custom Lockable Tool Box/6-passenger Bench; Excellent Condition.Fox Motorsports purchased this 1978 Mercedes-Benz Unimog out of Tucson, Arizona in May of 2013. It was then transported to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where it has been in climate-controlled storage other than very occational use. We have only added 3 hours of total run time on the engine.This Unimog has 20 forward gears—Conventional Gears, Crawler Gears, and Super Crawler Gears. Maximum speed in first gear is only 0.06 mph, for extremely heavy towing, etc. The previous owner set up this Unimog 416 for off-road use. The compressed air tank, fuel tank, and auxiliary fuel tank have been raised from their stock locations for increased ground clearance. 42-inch tires and Portal axles provide impressive ground clearance, particularly down the centerline of the truck. There is a 15,000-lb front Warn winch and a 9,000-lb rear Ramsey winch. The compressed air tank is set-up for pneumatic tools or to use with the included air inflator to adjust tire pressure. An extra-high intake snorkel sits 8-feet off the ground. Other features include a heavy-duty roll bar/hoop, air-cushioned front seats, and LED taillights.The condition of this Unimog is excellent. It was completely refreshed/rebuilt shortly before we purchased it and it shows. There is no corrosion or rust, and the underside of the Unimog is finished to the same level as the topside. The Unimog was recently pulled out of storage, inspected, started, and driven. During this time, one of the two Optima batteries in the 24-Volt electrical system and the starter button were replaced. The Unimog runs and drives, with no issues.Included in the sale are: keys (2 sets), owner’s manual (x2), service/parts manual (x3), Mercedes-Benz factory shop manuals (2 Volumes), full-size spare wheel/tire, winch controllers (2), wheel chocks (2), tow strap w/shackle, air hose w/tire inflator, oil filters (2), fuel filters (2), inline fuel filter (1), Mercedes OEM softtop w/ framework for rear bed, and convertible softtop for the cab.Note: The odometer was inoperable prior to our ownership but the working engine hour meter shows 2451 total hours, an increase of 3 hours since we purchased the Unimog in 2013 (consistent with our use).
