    Default Fully Restored Unimog "Doka" D/Cab - Value??

    Busy with one of these, will go view on Monday.

    Seller thinks its a 78/79 model.

    FULLY restored, like in nut and bolt.

    Dometic aircon, power steering, correct engine (5.7 Diesel?), the load bin is not original, it has been built with a canvas canopy.

    I know this Guy, no costs were spared.

    It also has an original "Werner" (??) winch, disassembled but complete.

    …….What is this worth??

    I know we all need more detail etc etc, but just a ball park figure, if everything looks and sounds like above??

    I've seen it on his farm before...….its VERY nice, like in VERY. Red in colour.

    Here's what I got so far - its standing on a farm.

    That rear bin looks original...………

    It also has a "matching trailer", and I think this is also a sort of genuine accessory thing, the way I know my pal.

    My Pal tells me its a very cool ride - you can do about 100/110 with it, and it doesn't lose speed on inclines. Above 110 gets a bit busy in the cab.

    He just recommends applying some sound deadening stuff inside (cant remember the name), apparently then its dead quiet. OK, as dead quiet as a Mog at 110 can be

    And this looks quite "civvy" inside, lekker aircon/power steering/leather/carpeting/stereo.

    But ja, would LOVE to take this for a spin next week, he asked me to take it for a long spin to Clarens and check it out.

    Se mos...…….ek het lekkerste Job innie Wereld.

    En dan vra mense my hoekom kan ek nie met net een kar ry nie…...…........PFFFFFT, how boring

    Looks like a well restored and unmolested truck Petri. She really is pretty!

    The load bin is not original, but fits in well with the vehicle. I can't see from the pics - is the load bin mounted properly on a 3-point pivot as it should be on a mog?

    From the looks of her I'd say she was a civilian mog, meaning most likely a 12V electrical system (the military versions are 24V). This makes sourcing electrical items (radios, light bulbs, etc) much easier.

    In terms of value - with these vehicles it depends very much on finding the right buyer.

    5 years ago you would've sold her in a relatively short period of time for around R500k to R600k. In the current market I expect it's going to take quite some time to find a buyer willing to pay more than R400k.

    You can contact the Unimog Freunde Club of SA for an indication of value. They'll be more up to date with values at which mogs are currently changing hands.

    Power steering is standard on all 416 and 406 Mogs. This is a 416 Doka.

    Werner winch (Werner 64) is the right one. It is PTO driven. Must make sure that there is a PTO box, shaft and coupling. If not the buyer will search for a long time in the RSA.

    Depending on how the 4 hubs are doing (R30k per hub if need to replace), how smooth the gearbox is, leaks on the torque tube seals, 4x4 and diff lock engage smooth (pneumatic engagement). Then does it have disc breaks or drums. Disc has 4 front callipers and two at the back. Drums are a bit of a dog on a Mog.

    R350 - R450k.

    Remember these Mog are old! 40 plus years and old stuff breaks...

    Open the Hub leveller plug... there are three plugs, the highest of the two on top. If no oil is visible the hub could be running dry. Especially the front hubs. Notorious problem is a hub losing oil through the breather into the diff. Dry hubs kill the gears (R30k per hub for replacement). O ye and hubs seal leaks which are visible on the inside of the rim.

    The above price is a range, depending on how much risk of the unknown mechanical stuff you are willing to take.

    Speed is good at 80kmph. Above that it becomes a bit ‘loose’ on the road. Someone mentioned 90kmpu on old SADF Mogs- possible if you open your pump a little (and if it is not your truck). They were built as workers not as speedsters.

    Tyres are Michelins. Looks like 335 80 R20. Around R15k ex vat per tyre. Good tyres. What I can see they have not worked a lot. Will get at least 60k’s from a set. That is a lot of k’s in a Unimog.

    VIN is on the Chassis. Either right front or if not after the rear wheel to the back, either side, depending on how the punch guy felt that day. The VIN give model detail... e.g. starting with 416.163 will indicate that it is a 416 hard top.

    Then a nice camper could set you back another 350k plus.

    Be wake-up when somebody sells his Unimog. And by this I am in no way referring to the Mog for sale in any way whatsoever.

    I have a suspicion that the red doka had a previous owner in Stellenbosh.
