Buy this Wolf in fancy Wolf clothing: 1990 Mercedes-Benz Wolf 250GD for sale

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.

    I hit BaT every morning (which is stupid, because I don’t have any money with which to bid on anything) and fell in love with this truck. It’s SO much better than your average G-wagen. Even the small diesel I5 is perfect for its purpose. The Wolf may have just usurped the Defender 90 on my “must own some day” list. Awesome rig.

    I love this. It’s so perfect.
    But then I can’t help thinking that for the money, depending on what it sells for, I can probably have two new Jeep Wrangler Rubicons. Not to take away anything from this G but I’d bet that the JL Rubi is a better vehicle in every measurable way.

      I saw my first JL in the wild today. Unlimited, red, aftermarket wheels/tires. I thought the exterior changes would be so subtle that I wouldn’t recognize the new ones, but the rear looked significantly different– not sure if it’s a trick of the new taillights or what, but the side-to-tailgate corner radius looks larger to me.

    “new timing belt and tensioner pulley”.

      Yeah, I thought the 2.5 diesels used a double chain.

    What’s with the “wolf” designation on a G-Wagen, I always associated that with the Landrover Defender XD which was the late 90s/early oughts military Defender which took its name form the British MOD project code.
