According to Autoblog, Schwarzenegger is not the one to put the sale up the internet himself, but the dealer, registered as Texas Direct Auto Sales in Houston claims that the truck is bought directly from the iconic legendary actor. That claim is supported by a full documentation and photos of Schwarzenegger taking delivery when the transaction was made to prove the authenticity.
From the sale's picture and description, the used car still have a great shape. The odometer also shows a mileage of only 1,865 miles (3,001 km), despite being bought a long time ago.

Schwarzenegger, also formerly a California governor, is known to be passionate about his cars. His obsession with Hummer H1 is also famous, and apparently also for off-road vehicles just like this Unimog.
The Mercedes-Benz Unimog is often considered as a legend with the first model being launched in 1945, immediately after the end of World War II. The Germany car manufacturer guaranteed the series' toughness, flexibility and heavy-duty.
The year 1977 is also remarkable for the series' history because it was when the 200,000th Unimog was produced. Topped by exceptional qualities and top celebrity ex-owner, this particular car is indeed a hot item still waiting for the best bid to hit the road again or as a boastful collection.
