American specialist outfitter restores G-Wagens to Wolf spec

American company is restoring old mil-spec G-Wagens, and you can build your own.

THERE’S a mob based out of Pennsylvania, USA, which prides itself on its painstaking restorations of old Mercedes-Benz G-Wagens, with the Expedition Motor Company fully restoring and tailoring a series of classic G-Wagens to exact customer specifications.

The company specialises in the ‘Wolf’, specifically ex-military 250GD models circa 1990 to 1993. The ‘Wolf’ nomenclature was a codename used by the German military to describe the G-Wagen. To qualify as a ‘Wolf’ the following criteria needs to be met: it needs a fold-down windscreen, it must be a convertible, and it must be a 250GD.

According to Expedition Motor Company, the meticulous build process of each bespoke vehicle is “nearly 1000 hours in the making”, with each “frame-off restored vehicle” a turnkey offering.

Once payment is received, a three- to four-month wait is expected before the keys are handed over to affluent customers.

The restorations aren’t limited to the 250GD, though, with the company also listing the 240GD, 290GD and 300GD on its website.

The website also indicates it can ship the truck to “any country in the world”. For more info, and to have some fun building your own, visit: https://expeditionmotorcompany.com
