1990 Mercedes-Benz G-Class GD250 Wolf description
This is a NO RESERVE auction. The winning bidder will own this AWESOME Mercedes Benz!
This real deal 250GD Wolf is powered by a Mercedes Benz 5 cylinder, 2.5 liter, diesel motor. It currently has only 70,747 miles, which if you know Mercedes diesels, makes this barely broken in. With the proper care and maintenance, these diesels will go 400,000 miles or more! There is nothing more bulletproof than this motor. Before you read any further, if you don't know what a 250GD Wolf is, just Google it and watch a few of the videos. There is nothing more competent off-road than this vehicle. The G refers to it being in the Mercedes G Class and the D refers to it being a diesel motor.
This truck was decommissioned earlier in 2016 from Bundeswehr (German military use) and it was legally imported from Germany. Religious, old school, military maintenance was performed during its military service in Germany. It was meticulously serviced at all intervals throughout its life. This truck significantly stands out from the common NATO trucks. Mechanically, this truck is top notch. I have driven it for over a year on city streets and in the Texas Hill Country and it has ZERO issues. ZERO. The upholstery is all original in very nice condition. The rear seat on the driver's side has a slightly more brown vinyl than the other seats which are clearly green. I have taken a pic of this for you. The exterior is also very nice for used military truck. The hood has a couple of small dents (pictured) that can easily be pulled out, if you so choose. For me, its authenticity as a retired military G-Wagon is reflected in these little battle wounds. The paint is a camo military-grade paint. You can't buy it anywhere. It has a special coating that was made to be durable against trees and brush when it was driven off-raod, and it also makes it more difficult to be seen by night-vision googles...not that you will need this feature:) There is zero rust in the rear quarter panels and the rear sill. This truck is super solid and heavy.
This was either the first 250GD imported into the US, or very close to it. Most of the retired military G's seen for sale in the USA are 240's, and not 250's. This one is the 250GD which has a bigger diesel engine than the 240's, and it has the much better 5-speed gearbox. I believe that this is the only 250GD for sale in the USA right now.
Here are a few Interesting facts about the Mercedes Benz 250GD Wolf:
The 250 GD Wolf production started at the beginning of the 1990s, and only around 12,500 vehicles were delivered to the Bundeswehr.
This is the series 461.4 with some special features that distinguish the vehicle from its civilian counterparts. It is more powerful in comparison to the previous and more common 240GD. This truck has 22 more horsepower. It also has power steering and a 5-speed gearbox, unlike 240GD. Power brakes and power steering make this super easy to drive.
It will easily cruse at 65-70MPH, with a top speed around 75MPH. Because this is an imported vehicle from Germany, the VIN I entered is incorrect and had to be modified to fit the US/eBay standards. However, it does have a legally imported VIN of WDB46140117067187 and I do have a clear, blue Texas title.
