The Mercedes Unimog has a long history starting back in 1946 in post-war Germany when they were developed as a farm vehicle that could also be driven on the road.  It wasn’t until 1953 that the first closed cab model was introduced.  Later in 1955 the 404 S was developed for the Federal West German army.  Since then there have been many models sold and used for all types of work and recreational off roading.
