Due to a change in personal circumstances, my Mercedes fire truck is now for sale. 

In perfect working order and complete.

A fantastic, original, unrestored 59 years old truck in incredible condition. 

We  have just taken her out for a cruise around and play off-road. 

I'm so impressed with this wagon every time I drive it, both on and off-road. Everything is so tight and just right. 

For example, the gear shifts are just so perfect. You can just tell she's done no work in her life. 

Imported and UK registered by myself with the V5 in my name. 

Ready to go on UK roads.

Registered as a 7.5 T Historic Vehicle.Tax and MOT exempt.

Registered Unladen weight is 3.1 T as weighed by the shipping company so with an option to be down plated to drive on a normal licence.

Registered as an 8 seater and comfortably seats 3 in the front 5 in the rear crew cab.

This would be a great truck to convert into a camper/expedition vehicle with the relatively easy conversion option to cut through from the cab into the truck body keeping much of her original build and character intact. With an elevating roof also added to keep her original shape.

As a rare 4 x 4 truck she also has the 321 high output 5 Litre turbo engine, producing 132 BHP. Only fire trucks were fitted with this option but not all of them have it. She drives very well.

The water tank in the rear holds 2500l of water so plenty of grunt was required to haul up mountains to fight fires.The water pump is untested but described as working when sold. It looks immaculate.

The interior is like new, pretty much everything electrical works, lights, blue lights etc. All the windows wind up and down.

This genuinely is a time warp wagon.

She starts and drives like new, gearbox, high and low and brakes all good.

Immaculate under the bonnet and underneath bar a small bit of corrosion on some of the locker bases. Most importantly, the bulkhead is pristine as is cab area  in general. Obviously the original paint has faded. 

These trucks share many parts with Unimogs so parts are readily available. C

My contacts in Germany for parts + price list for service items such as drive belts, brake linings, bushes and bearings can be included in the sale

There is plenty of original paperwork for the truck, plus some obtained from the Mercedes Benz Historic Museum in Germany such as the original data sheet/ birth certificate. She was officially ‘born' on the 13/8/1962.

There is hardly a dent on her and I've been over the whole body with a magnet and I can't find any filler.

I'm am very happy to deliver within the uk or Europe or arrange shipping to any where in the world, all at the buyers expense. The listed price is for collection from Redruth , Cornwall. I would also consider removing the water tank and pump if required as I have the lifting equipment to do so. 

There is a lot more I could write, however if you are genuinely interested in buying her please get in touch for more info. Either message on here or my mobile number is

07866497667

I also have loads more pictures of the cab interior which is also in amazing time warp condition plus videos of her running and driving.
