When the Smurfs need a tough vehicle to go after Gargamel, they turn to this 1961 Unimog 404.1 Smurf troop carrier. Now you might think Papa Smurf is more of a diesel guy, and this ‘mog is a gasoline-powered version. But the seller (Smurfs can’t legally sell vehicles) says that you’re a fool for wanting the diesel because they take forever to get up 30MPH, and that 30 is about the top speed. This gas Unimog can fly along at speeds in excess of 60MPH. The flatbed with oak rails is utilitarian in purpose and makes the 404 look like and old farm truck with a bright blue paint job. I’ve seen way cooler Unimogs out there, but this one does seem to be both mechanically and structurally sound. The asking price of $27,000 on eBay does seem a bit out of touch with reality. But hey, something is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. This 1961 Mercedes-Benz Unimog is ready to carry an army of Smurfs to wherever that next battle might be.
