Lightbulb eBay Find Of The Day: Mercedes Unimog and Pinzgauer fleet is an army in a box

Filed under: Truck, Auctions, Mercedes-Benz, Military



There's something paradoxically beautiful about the heavy-duty, over-engineered design of military equipment. It's not classically pretty, but army hardware just looks ready to take a beating and still be ready for more. From the Humvee to the Jeep, we have a long history of repurposing the armed forces' gear for civilian use in the US, and this eBay Motors auction in California is your chance to build a whole fleet of trucks in one fell swoop.

The auction includes six Mercedes-Benz Unimogs of three different types. Four of them are German military surplus, according to the seller, and one of them still wears its German Feuerwehr (fire department) designation. Also, if you are a bit envious of your neighbor's Mercedes G63 AMG 6X6, then you can keep up with the Jones' with a Steyr-Puch Pinzgauer 712 DK 6X6 truck of your own. Finally, there are two Stewart and Stevenson LMTVs - a winch truck and a flatbed. Among them, you should have plenty of hauling power to take whatever you want just about anywhere.

The seller is a company called Expedition Imports that specializes in providing parts for these military trucks and claims that all of the ones here are in good operating condition. The auction has a Buy It Now of $300,000 and ends on July 10. However, you don't have to drop all of that money at once. The listing includes individual prices for each vehicle with costs ranging between $18,000 and $65,000. Alternatively, you could gather eight friends, scrape together the money and have the best weekend ever of taking these trucks everywhere.eBay Find Of The Day: Mercedes Unimog and Pinzgauer fleet is an army in a box originally appeared on Autoblog on Tue, 24 Jun 2014 11:30:00 EST.
