1958 Mercedes Unimog 404.114 Troop Carrier

I dont want to do this but I have to many projects and not a lot of time to spend on them, so here goes.

1958 Mercedes Benz Unimog 404.114 Swiss Army Troop Carrier

The specs:

2.2 liter 6 cylinder M180 gasoline engine
6 speed manual with 2 reverse gears
portal axles w/total axle ratio of 7.56
Lockers front and rear
approx 38" tires

I got this in a trade with hopes of fixing it up mechanically and driving it. I spend a lot of time cleaning it out and started to go through it. Previous owner had it imported and drove it for about 10 years around the US. Unfortunately when he parked it last it was full of water and had no antifreeze in it so the aluminum head cracked. I have another stock head for it but was going to pull the oilpan to make sure nothing else was damaged. I had also thought about swapping in a Mercedes sedan motor which would give it approx 50 more horsepower over the stock 80 hp. Too anyone who does not know about these they are very underpowered with a topspeed of about 45mph with a tailwind, downhill. They are geared very low however. Think of them as a street legal tractor. The body has some cancer on it which didnt bother me because I was just going to drive it. The frame seems solid. I have a clean Montana title for it along with a bill of sale. It has approx 20,000 kilometers on it. This is a complete vehicle including flat bed frame with sides and troop bench seats. I have the doors and the top hardware which would need new canvas. It also has the front pto which wasnt standard. All of the tires hold air fine and it rolls fairly easily. Transmission seems to shift fine.

Here are pictures of its current state although it is presently stored in my garage out of the elements.








Here is a picture of another Mog with the troop carrier bed and a top on it. THIS IS NOT MY UNIMOG


This is being sold as is/where is. This is a project vehicle, I'm sure it will need other stuff gone through as well. I have never heard it run. I do have factory repair manuals that go with this. Parts are still available for these although they can be pricey.


PRICE $2000 firm.

Please do not offer me less. I am fairly confident I could part this out for more but since it is a complete vehicle I would like to see it fixed and enjoyed. This is not at the shop so if you would like to look at it we would need to set up a time, please no tire kickers. This is located in Westminster, MD 21158

Wow...wish I didn't already have a 'Mog which needed to be finished. Otherwise I would LOVE to restore another!

PS. A 404.1 in good shape will do 60+ on flat ground. I cruise mine (the gas one) @ around 52-55.

I was just told it is not Swiss.

German, Belgian, or French.

Roughly 6400lbs (+/- 200lbs or so) with all the "stuff" included. \

I'd say back off and let me have it BUT I COULD use another Mog to play with around here, LOL.

Headed to Virginia. The guy seem motivated enough to have it done in a few months. Should see it at some Big Dogs events.
