1956 MERCEDES UNIMOG 404
We purchased the vehicle in June 2016 and spent the following 2 years restoring the vehicle.
The engine has been fully restored and a new clutch fitted at a cost of £3500. The braking system has had all the hydraulics etc replaced. The bodywork was repaired and fully resprayed, please note that the body is fully detachable.
This vehicle was 1 of 3 built in 1958 by Jennings, this 1 is the only survivor. This vehicle when new was supplied to Manchester Airport when they finished using it the vehicle was sent to St. Helens Transport Museum where we found it.
Due to 2 heart attacks, we had to close our business which resulted in us having nowhere to keep her and therefore the requirement to sell her.
