Unidan Newsletter Issue No. 3 - September 2016
The Past Month…
This past month has been busy as usual! With another two trucks sales, a visit from the new Mercedes Benz Euro6 Mog, a front page article in Pat Callinan’s 4×4 magazine and loads of interest in some up coming projects. Not to mention our Tyre and Wheel Deal released earlier this month, it is safe to say that UNIDAN Engineering is busier than ever! Don’t worry though, there is still more excitement to come in the coming weeks and months so stay tuned. Here is this months complete overview…
Mercedes Benz Euro6 U5023
Earlier this month we got a visit from a brand new Euro6 U5023 Unimog. Myself and the crew got the awesome opportunity of spending the day climbing all over the beast. We even got to take it for a test drive down at the local 4×4 tracks. The changes between this new Mog and the older Mogs that we usually see are incredible. This truck has all the features that you would expect in a high end, luxury 4×4 without detracting from the off-road performance that the Unimog is renowned for. Big thumbs up from UNIDAN.
U1700L38 Unimog – SOLD
This Mog had multiple buyers interested in it over the week before it was finally sold. The new owner of this truck was in a hurry to fix his current Unimog in the Northern Territory and came in last week to see if we could supply him with a new clutch kit. We did have one in stock however he didn’t have the time to install this, together with fixing the rear main seal, a much larger job, in time to finish his drilling before the wet season. So he very quickly saw the value in this Unimog to get back to work sooner.
U1700 Slide-On Camper – SOLD
This Slide-On Camper has now been sold but don’t worry, this is not the last you will see of this project. The new owners plan on customising it further to make it their very own home away from home. This Mog has some exciting things to come and some more great adventures coming its way.
Pat Callinan’s 4×4 Adventures
Earlier this month UNIDAN made an appearance on the front cover of the September-October edition of ‘Pat Callinan’s 4×4 Adventures’!
We have to say a massive thank-you to these guys for the awesome write up. The UNIDAN creation featured in this article was built in 2015 for a customer that wanted a mix of a work horse during the week and a comfortable truck to get away in on the weekends. The photo shoot was taken at our UNIMOG Owner’s Weekend last year, where we handed over the keys to the new owner.
Many of UNIDAN Engineering’s trucks have featured in various magazines over the years. UNIDAN is the place to go if you’re after a vehicle to stand our from the crowd, backed by the off road capability of a Unimog.

We’ve got some new trucks up for sale in the coming weeks and wanted to let you know as soon as possible as we have already had some interest shown in them. We also have our Unimog Owner’s Drive Weekend that you as our Newsletter Members are invited to, even if you don’t own a Unimog. Here’s some of the opportunities that are coming up…
We have already seen some interest in the Ex-ADF Unimog that will be up for sale in the coming weeks. We know how quick these Mogs have been selling and have previously had these Mogs sell before we have even been able to list them for sale. Considering this we have made sure to give you the heads up before anyone else to ensure that this opportunity doesn’t slip through your fingers. Indicative price range is $40-45,000.
