Obstacle Not Found: 1970 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 404

Production of the Mercedes-Benz Unimog ("UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät" (Gerät meaning machine in German)) started in post WWII as agricultural equipment, specifically because Germany was forbidden from building anything with pointy edges after their second failed attempt at world domination.  However, the farm tractor was just a few minor modifications away from being turned into a troop carrier for rolling through the streets of Paris, or (as is the case today) turned into a fun offroader for rolling through Perris.  Find this 1970 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 404 for $6,500 in Bako, CA via craigslist.

The asking price is fairly low for a running/driving Mog, but the seller admits that the car needs a tune up and some electric work to get it totally sorted.  Once you are done you've got a portal axle equipped Mad Max mobile ready to roll over anything.
