1986 Mercedes-Benz 250GD

I’m always interested in old-school G-wagens that kick the sparkly stuff in the faces of the people that see them as accessories similar to those watches with 4-inch faces, or 30 lbs of platinum tennis bracelets. This almost 30-year old green example is in fantastic shape from less than 60k miles, but it eschews the standard glitz and chrome for a great green and flat black exterior. The extra kick to the 1%’s groin is instead of “V8 Biturbo” on the side, it says “Schnitzel.” Yep. Be careful when you sit in any of the NINE seats, because there’s a strong chance you’ll get some serious awesome rubbed off on you.

“Tough Terrain Vehicle”

Up for auction out of a private collection this is this 1986 G-Wagon. The vehicle runs and drives 100% and is very well sorted out mechanically. Recent work includes:

Rebuilt transmission

New brakes

Front steering leakage

The vehicles bulletproof diesel engine still runs and drives exceptionally well with a smooth and rare automatic transmission. The vehicle is very solid and drives like one would expect a Mercedes Benz car built for military use. Cosmetically this G-Wagon does have some cosmetic blemishes on the body, but the interior shows remarkably well for its age. The odometer shows 57,976 Kilometers, but it cannot be verified.

VIN # WDB46033317048408

It is an exceptionally well-preserved “tough terrain vehicle” that will look kickass driving down the street, and no one’s going to think you’re a pretend celebrity or trophy wife. They’ll know you’re into badass German vehicles. And did I mention the plaid jumpseats?

Everyone, pile in. We’re going anywhere.

  1. Bought my wife a G500 years ago, for her 40th birthday. What I really wanted, was one of these, with a Diesel engine. Very hard to find.
    The other problem, she probably would not be driving this cool one around.
