Description

Chassis no. 4111129501389
Engine no. OM636 06360110 A work vehicle of particular historical importance.
Cult object among worldwide collectors with dedicated clubs, events and museums.
This particular 411 was manufactured in 1959 at the Mercedes-Benz Werk facilities in Gaggenau.
For many years it belonged to an Austrian enthusiast who, after having it perfectly restored with no expense spared and every effort made to respect its original features, used it to advertise his business (sports store).
Purchased in 2016 by an important Italian collector who happened to be staying in Austria. Since then used very occasionally, to cover short distances on the owner’s country estate.      
Considered one of the world’s best restored Unimog 411s.        
Not yet registered in Italy, it will be sold with a purchase certificate.
Original OM636 four-cylinder diesel engine with precombustion chambers.
Considered unstoppable, this off-road vehicle offers surprising performance levels.
In many countries, the Unimog has come to symbolize the period of rebirth after the destruction of the WW2. Used in fields, on construction sites, and to do the most difficult jobs, it has, over a distinguished 70-year career, become a much loved and legendary part of automotive history. Today, the oldest versions, like the 411 offered here, have become cult vehicles beyond collector items and enjoy the support of a very large community of international enthusiasts.
