Bring a Trailer continues to be a great source of vintage rides. Its listings regularly include highly sought-after vehicles collectors would gladly pay a handsome sum for. However, the establishment also offers unique machines now and then just like a 1976 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 416 Doka. This behemoth towers over any pickup truck and is eager for the roughest of adventures.
The German marque is recognized the world over for its fleet of luxurious high-performance offerings. Meanwhile, it also excels when it comes to heavy-duty commercial vehicles like vans and trucks. This hybrid between and truck is an ultimate off-road platform for overlanding aficionados and other applications.
Powering this beast is a 5.7-liter OM352 diesel inline-six with an aftermarket turbocharger. Bring a Trailer does not specify the 1976 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 416 Doka’s output numbers but we know for a fact that it should be exceptional. A 20-speed manual gearbox directs everything to all four wheels on portal axles.
A Warn 15,000-pound winch with a synthetic line, Factor 55 fairlead with UltraHook, three locking differentials, an aftermarket suspension upgrade, and a body lift tell us this truck means business. The 1976 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 416 Doka can practically handle anything the trails throw its way.
All 20” steel wheels are shod in Michelin 425/75 XM47 tires. The bed and cargo boxes let you haul gear and other bigger items with ease. Meanwhile, the double cab’s interior shows black vinyl upholstery on the dashboard, seats, and door panels. Bring a Trailer says this 1976 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 416 Doka’s exterior is tan with black sections in black.Learn More
