I spotted this 1978 Unimog 416 DoKa on Bring a Trailer today. The ebay ad states that the truck has about 2500 hours on a factory-rebuilt engine and 200k+ kilometers on the odometer. It doesn’t have a PTO or hydraulics but the seller says he has those parts available, presumably for extra cost.

This truck is reported to have standard axles, as opposed to the high-speed ones we sometimes see, so top speed is limited to 55 mph. Still, you get the standard portal axles, 6 forward and 2 reverse gears, a 125 hp diesel engine, and room for five adults in the cab.

The opening bid is $25,000, which is closer to the price I’ve seen for restored Unimog DoKas. Take this one for example, that I covered at about this time last year, which was listed at $27.5k. And the seller states that for some reason the front bumper is not included. Hmm.

The truck is located in Fairport, New York. The auction closes on February 17th and currently has no bids.

Update 2/23/2013: The truck failed to sell at $25,000.
