Description for Mercedes-Benz Unimog U1300L 1987

1987 Unimog U1300

Fully prepared Unimog, ready for an expedition body to be mounted.

This Unimog would be perfect for a Total Composites box kit.

1987 Unimog U1300L
Former fire brigade ambulance (the non-military ambulances saw the lightest duty of all the Unimogs and are therefore the most desirable).
OM366A turbocharged engine
Fast Axles
Continental 335/80 R20 MPT81 Tires
Some level of factory rebuild in 1998 (the information on this is very unclear, but it did go for a complete servicing and partial rebuild in 1998, which means it has some components only found in newer Unimogs

This Unimog was built to take a custom expedition camper. The subframe was built to accept up to a 13 foot camper.

Recent work completed –

CLAAS Overdrive installed- Allows comfortable cruising at 65mph
New Rotors and Break Pads
New Water Pump
New Belts and hoses
New Brake Lines
New hub wear rings and seals
New Transmission output shaft seals
New Clutch
New Batteries
Rebuilt Alternator and Voltage regulator
New fuel lines
New thermostat
Extensive Dynamat installation throughout Cab.
Spectrum Sludge Sound deadening compound sprayed on undercarriage and on firewall.
Heat and Sound Deadening compound applied to firewall (this helped the cabin temp immensely

Parts used –

From Atkinson Vos in UK

225 Liter Extended Fuel tank
Extended Aluminum Battery box
Deluxe Sound Deadening Kit

From Atlas 4×4 in Germany

Subframe Kit – made out of s355 frame steel (this is a really awesome German subframe that allows you to mount a camper directly to it. It is very lightweight, only 3-400lbs, much lighter than the standard Unimog bed)
Custom Bumper – with new high intensity LED lights (A massive improvement in light output from the standard lights). This is a very costly, but necessary upgrade).
Custom Water tank – that fits in between the subframe rails, neoprene coated for low temps

Random Upgrades

Auberins EGT and Water temp guage – digital with alarm.
Custom Seat Brackets and new seats from a 2013 sprinter
Mogauspuff Stainless Cowl Muffler from Germany – this helped with engine noise as well as allowing the move of the fuel tank to drivers side, making room for a camper door on the passenger side.

Here is a list of major upgrades and prices. There is significantly more into the Unimog than this.
