Many of my G-Wagen posts are centered around finding examples that counter the G-series unfortunate decline into status symbols as overblown as watches with four-inch faces. Today’s brings all the tough with a few bumps and bruises as well as an aftermarket truck bed. With a long wheelbase, 4WD, and bulletproof diesel, this would be an outstanding work truck. It looks pretty rough for being just 20 years old – a mere childhood in a G-wagen’s lifespan. The downsides are a rather optimistic asking price and the fact that it currently resides in Amsterdam. If the seller is serious about getting international interest, he’d do well to provide a bit more information.

Its Dutchness makes it nothing more than a dream, but it does make me think of finding a cheaper old G-wagen in the states and making it into a truck. Economical, useful, and badass, it would put any other G-wagen and most other trucks to shame. Even if this one were on the right side of the pond, I can’t imagine it getting $16k in this shape unless the miles turn out to be crazy low. Even then, something like $12k seems a bit more reasonable.
