1993 Mercedes-Benz 300GE

One of the biggest jumps in values over the past two years has been the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. It seems that no model was spared in the G world, as almost everything saw a spike a value. Pre-2020, finding an early-2000s G500 in decent shape for around $25,000 wasn’t a problem. Now, those trucks are well over $30,000 and it only gets crazier from there. With the pre-2002 imports, things get a little more complicated. Given all of these trucks are imports with varying degrees of condition of specifications, you really only have a ballpark based on recent sales. However, that might only be a handful given their rarity, so values tend to be a bit more suggestive when talking about a fixed asking price. Today’s G, a short wheelbase 300GE, is one of those situations.

2002 Mercedes-Benz G500

If you are looking at the title then looking at the photo of the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen and wondering what is going on, there is an explanation for that. Thanks to the W463 generation running from 1990 to 2018 and going through multiple, multiple facelifts, many parts from later models literally just bolt on to earlier years. That means with enough money, you can make a G500 that is old enough to buy cigarettes look like a 2018 G63 AMG. Wouldn’t you know, that is exactly what we have today. Sort of.

This 2002 G500 has been updated in order to try to look like a G63 AMG. It has the bigger bumpers and fender flares, bi-xenon lights, updated brush guard, LED tailights, 20″ wheels, and they even went as far as putting AMG badges on it. The thing is, they went this far, and forgot a few important bits that makes this thing look like a half-assed job. Even more disappointing, you open the doors and get a really quick reminder that this is still a 2002 with 128,000 miles on it.

2011 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG with B6 Armoring

A number of weeks ago I looked at a heavily armored 1995 Mercedes-Benz S600 that was built for none other than the Sultan of Brunei. It was an 8,700 pound tank of a car that probably is on par with some tanks as to how much combat fire it can withstand. Today, I came across another literally bulletproof Mercedes that can handle everything just short of armor piecing rounds. This 2011 G55 AMG that is built to a B6 level of armoring is originally a vehicle from the Middle East and somehow is now in California. Just like the S600 you would think that this is just another standard G55 that is hopping around Los Angeles. Then you open the doors to see that clearly isn’t the case.
