Getting to retire well after a life of military service is a dream we wish more service members could enjoy. My own father did 20 years in the Navy and now has a normal gig that pairs well with his government and state (from another post-Navy gig) pensions. Post military life can be done better though, as this 1990 Mercedes-Benz Wolf 250GD proves.
When a G-Class is built and slated for military work, it’s called a Wolf. That’s a much cooler name than any G-number number AMG blah blah. This specific vehicle did its time in Afghanistan alongside the German military before getting its discharge papers and winding up with a dealer in New Jersey.
Once there, the 250GD received a full restoration. Which is funny to hear, considering the vehicle only shows 9,000 miles on its odometer. But military work is hard and this G-Class is getting a new life that it deserves. That includes a full body-off restoration, gorgeous new blue paint, a pair of custom tops, BFGoodrich tires, upgraded steering bits, and plenty of upgrades to make it both a beastie off road and a joy around town.
This Wolf is listed over on Bring-A-Trailer, where (at the time of this writing) sits with a current bid of $37,000 and six days remaining before its sold. The BAT crew have sold a Wolf a number of times, with one selling in November for $46,500. The one seen here has way less miles and a far nicer restoration job.
It’s going to fetch a strong amount of cash. And it should, because it’s wonderful.
