This 1972 Mercedes Benz Unimog, which was originally sold in Germany. This example was imported to the United States and is what he called a “show-piece,” though it was once a work vehicle.
“It’s a truck body on a tractor foundation,” he said. “It’s pretty slow — it’s more of a work vehicle.”
The snorkel coming out of the right side of the hood, he said, is the air filter intake, while the small piece that extends out of the truck’s grill is what he called a “front PTL.”
“Its like a driveshaft for different attachments, for things that operate different hydraulic systems,” Mr. Desrochers said.
Though his shop’s specialty is tires, the owner said Ace is “actually doing some electric work on it and some other stuff.”
When asked about the singularity of the truck, Mr. Derochers simply replied “we work on everything.”
