Yup, had my trusty Nick website on my phone. I was nervous buying the stuff thinking the guy might know what he had!

It also looks like you found a pale green 30a Ford Prefect - htf if only because it's so difficult to tell the two colours apart in a photograph on Ebay!

Thanks for the comment I really didn't think the Mog was that rare but I guess it is. :shock:

You'll notice that Nick does not have a photo of a tan/red Unimog on his website. If Nick doesn't have a photo of a major variation, then you know it's rare!

Congratulations on your find! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Enjoy!

Happy hunting!

Super neat Unimog. Did not even notice it was out of the ordinary until it was mentioned.
