This is a 1976 Mercedes 416 Unimog, and from what I can see- the only one on Driveshare!
It can be configured in multiple ways, and can be discussed further after booking- (a timeline is needed to configure the truck)
I can configure it with it's blue hard top.
A white canvas soft top (up or down)
No top at all
The doors are removable.
The window frame assemblies are removable (with or without the hard or soft top you can have windows or not)
High back bucket or low back original seats
The rear folding bedsides are removable.
Make it look like a panel truck/Have a band sit in the back or people to sit on bales of hay or something.... or make it look like a flatbed with them removed.
The tool box assembly can be removed and additional flatbed flooring can be installed (no besides can be installed in this configuration)
I'll tell you its current configuration when booking if it works for you.
It has a large winch on the front, and air brakes/air compressor built into it.
Its very tall, clearance is an issue when it comes to locations it can drive, subject to inspection.
I am very good with judging height and where it can fit. Undercar garages/etc are verboten due to it's size.
Width and length is your typical pickup truck.
It's powered by a non turbo 5.9 diesel- As such, its loud and smells/leaks/smokes like an old diesel. Nose sensitive individuals may become irritated from it.
It can do anything, go through anything, and generally is a tractor that can be driven on the street.
Photo shoots/commercials/weddings/music videos/light four wheeling/water fording/off-road scenes/brand promotion/parades/etc.etc.
It only has 2 seats (one passenger). With the original low seat configuration, it is not equipped with seatbelts (as originally built/designed). With high back seats I have added seatbelts to it.
I can dress accordingly based on your requests if I own it, or wear something you provide.
It's unique and rare- Customization of the truck for the client's needs can be discussed on a case by case basis.
Contact me, lets get something figured out we can both agree on.
5.9 non turbo mechanical diesel
Continental MPT81 42" tall tires on painted 20" steel wheels
Dual caliper front brake system, rear single caliper system with air brake assistance.
8 forward gears, 4 reverse. selectable air lockers, air brakes and system
Vehicle will be brought to your location for show/usage/events. Driving it will be considered with whomever rents it, on a case by case basis after meeting them, and identifying their manual driving experience, and how well they take instruction. You must show proof of manual transmission capability, as the clutch/transmission is not user friendly. Parades and other things that need to be driven in, or pull a trailer I can drive it on your behalf. Rate quoted will be for 4 hour rental plus transportation both ways. Maximum distance from my starting point is 50 miles one way. The Unimog only does a maximum of 50 miles per hour - travel time and mileage will be included in rental time due to its slow pace.
