The UniVibe is famous from Jimi’s use of it. The LFO is a phase shift oscillator, with the dual 250K pots in the pedal assembly to control speed. A modern version would substitute an LED/photocell optocoupler for the four LDR’s and the incandescent light bulb that makes the shifting work. This IS just a four stage phaser, perhaps with some distortion from the signal path thrown in. Since the Univibe (r) is being reissued by Dunlop, Dunlop probably owns the "Univibe" trademark these days. This schematic bears no resemblance, except accidental, to the reissue that Dunlop or anyone else may be making.
