Here’s a little number that looks like it drove right off the front lines of World War II, although the actual year model was about ten years later. The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 404 Unimog is a perfect example of military ingenuity that crosses over into the realms of the everyday citizen. This particular model has a serial number 4, and is one of only 1,210 ever produced.
It weighs a total of 5,500 pounds, has a six-speed transmission and 0 to 60 capabilities. Boasting an M180 Mercedes gasoline engine and instant 4×4 access for tackling rivers, hills, and any other rough-and-tumble thing Mother Nature throws your way, the Unimog is also perfectly safe for street use, and it’ll turn quite a few heads once you get it out there for the world to see.
