This Unimog is a true military vehicle that was owned by the German government until purchased by its current owner. The original military green paint was painted over in its current shade of blue that represents Technisches Hilfswerk (Technical Relief Organization), a German emergency management agency that utilizes Unimogs by fire departments and municipalities as utility vehicles. It took nine months for this vehicle's current owner to find it. With the help of Unimog dealer, Atkinson Vos Ltd (http://www.unimogs.co.uk/), the truck was located in Germany and trailered to the Dealership's location in England. It went through a 150-point inspection; minor repairs were done and spare parts were purchased before being shipped to Galveston, Texas in 2013. All records are complete and up-to date from this truck's original factory purchase. In fact, the maintenance record book alone is over three inches thick.
