Is this a clean engine compartment or what ?

Carburetor to the left of the engine with the air compressor in front and air filter to the far left.

ftf9.jpg 15.9 kb You can see the timing chain portion of the valve cover (single overhead cam).
The plash proof ignition (distributor along with ignition coil) and splash proof voltage regulator.
This picture shows the frame with the transmission and the PTO with the drive shaft for the water pump.

This is the inside of the cab. Even the sun visors are still there, along with some air vents.
The hear liner seems to be in pretty good shape as well.


Nice seats make the drive moderately comfortable.
Lots of instruments and switches are the standard in any Unimog cab.
The heater is to the left of the drivers leg compartment.

The rear passenger compartment seems rather simple, but has a window to the front cab open.

Below : The pump compartment is in the rear and powered by the PTO off the transmission. Again, everything is functional and kept in really good shape.
All tires are on/off-road type and are almost new. This alone is more than $1000.-- in value.

One word from the web-admin : This seems to be the best S404.0 fire-truck that I have seen so far. It looks like it just came out of a museum or from a parade. Personally I like the S404.0 style of hard cabs the best. The split windshield along with the roof hatch and the semi round looking front nose (the 406 is to round and the new ones are to boxy) as well as the portal axles, give it this great look of a real professional off road monster. A real Daimler Benz (Mercedes) product.
