GRANTVILLE, Pa. — A 1967 Mercedes UNIMOG and more than 70 motorcycles will be among nearly 300 vehicles that will be available for public purchase next Tuesday at a Commonwealth Auction in Grantville, Dauphin County, the state announced.

The 1967 Mercedes UNIMOG up for sale is a multi-purpose, all-wheel drive, medium-sized truck that is perfect for off-road applications, the department said. 

The more than 70 motorcycles that will be available are from manufacturers such as Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Harley Davidson, according to the department.

In addition to those vehicles, the items up for bidding include trucks and SUVs, all-wheel and front-wheel-drive sedans, utility trucks, police interceptors and other types of vehicles no longer used by state agencies from manufacturers such as Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Jeep and others.

As part of efforts to ensure a safe auction environment, in-person access on the day of the auction will be limited to registered public buyers only, with no guests, and all registered dealers will be required to bid via simulcast, the department said. Masks and social distancing will be required for entry on preview days and the day of the auction. Masks and sanitizing products will be available for those who arrive without them. 

No food or beverage service will be provided at the auction site, according to organizers.
