Earlier this week I looked at a ex-military Mercedes G-Wagen in a 1987 240GD. Today is another 1987 ex-military G-Wagen but this one is setup to be a little more livable — at least for what it is. Unlike Monday’s truck, this one has a roof, a radio and is even capable of keeping up with traffic. But let’s not get carried away, you are still a long way away from cruising to the mall while taking photos for Instagram with your Starbucks cup leaning against the steering wheel. So let’s take a look at this Dutch 300GD.

Don’t get me wrong, this is still very much a bare bones G-Wagen where comfort is an afterthought. This truck was setup to work judging by all it’s accessories and specifically the built in storage boxes that fold open. That is something I rarely see even on the ex-military trucks. The engine is the OM603 3.5 liter diesel that was notorious for cracked heads and bent rods but according to the seller it was rebuilt so I’d assume a new head was fitted to fix this. Unlike the 240GD which used a 4-speed manual, you get an extra gear with this truck which will help you actually maintain a cruising speed on the highway if you chose to do so. Inside, you don’t get much and the rear cargo area is nothing but two metal boxes and some hung plywood.
