The 1973 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406 is a rugged and versatile vehicle that belongs to Mercedes-Benz's legendary Unimog series. The Unimog, derived from "UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät" (universal engine device), was originally developed as a multi-purpose vehicle for agricultural and military applications, and over the years has evolved into a wide range of variants for different purposes.

The Unimog 406 is powered by a diesel engine. It has a torquey engine and features a four-wheel drive system with a limited slip differential for optimum traction, even on rough terrain.

The Unimog 406 was known for its excellent off-road capabilities and terrain skills. It had a high ground clearance, a flexible chassis, a crawling gear and an exceptional climbing angle, which made it capable of traversing difficult terrain.

The Unimog 406 had a tough and functional body that allowed for different configurations, such as an open pickup bed, an enclosed cab with cargo box, a fire truck or even a snowplow. The vehicle had a modular design, which meant that different attachments could be easily attached or removed.

The 1973 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406 remains an icon among off-road vehicle enthusiasts and professionals in need of a reliable and powerful machine for demanding tasks. It is a symbol of intransigence, functionality and versatility in the automotive world.

This car was originally delivered in Oct 1973 by the Importer Hoegen Dijkhof of Doetinchem to a client in Warmenhuizen. In 1981 the Unimog was exchanged at the company Hoegen Dijkhof by this client, after which it was purchased by the last owner and has been used as a truck / tractor which included ballast elements for heavy telescopic cranes (100 to 300 tons) on a low loader were transported.

In 1987 the company Hoegen Dijkhof provided this car with a Carrymaster 750 kg hydraulic crane with hydraulic outrigger, of which the official assembly and construction drawings are present with the car. The hydraulic system is controlled by a valve block.

The Unimog engine and all systems in 1994/95 completely overhauled, the chassis is completely blasted and both internally and externally preserved, the body is completely refurbished and painted in an orange color. The aluminum body panels were also custom made and mounted by Carrosseriebouw bedrijf Ligthart in Schagerbrug.

In addition, during this major refurbishment, the wooden body floor was replaced by a 20 mm thick steel plate, with which the car, due to this weight, has received a great stabilization and driving comfort improvement. The current color yellow with black accents was given to the car in 2003, this was taken care of by autospuitbedrijf Scheurwater in Den Helder.

Contrary to many such vehicles in the coastal areas, this Unimog has not been on the beach and has therefore never been in contact with salty seawater.

In all the years that this car has been owned by the current owner, the car has always been stored in a storage shed, which has benefited its condition.

After October 9, 2023, the car is exempt from the MOT inspection requirement.
