1979 300GD WOLF PROTOTYPE, convertable

MERCEDES “WOLF” Prototype (Mercedes G-Wagon)
This is the very rare 4-door, long wheelbase version which was designed to transport officers and generals off road (Generalswagen). However due to standardization requirement this 4-door version was not integrated into the army inventory. Therefore, it is a unique and rar piece of automotive/ military history. This vehicle was completely restored from 1999 till 2000 with more than 15.000 DM in parts invested! For photos check the internet under:

Engine: strong 5 cylinder Mercedes Diesel OM 617 with new injector nozzles, NO electronics that can break!!! The car is over 30 years old and can be registered as historic vehicle to save insurance and tax.
