Playing in the Sand
A customer of ours sent us these pictures of his Unimog U1100 which has recently been restored.
It was purchased by Modderfontein Dinamite factory with two others in the late 70's and was rigged as a fire engine.
Our customer bought the Unimog from them and started rebuilding it in 2009. He still has the fire tank and uses it as a slip-on fire tender. It was red and has been repainted to Unimog green. The Unimog body and drive is in great condition for its age. The old engine overheated so was replaced with a brand new 352 engine. The old engine is still around though and is going to be repaired and kept as a back up.
At the moment, they are building a slip-on overland body to use for doing overland tours in Mozambique and is currently playing in an area called Hoedspruit in South Africa!
