A Rare Mercedes-Benz G Wagon Pickup – IOTW Report

A Rare Mercedes-Benz G Wagon Pickup

Silodrome: This 1993 Mercedes-Benz G Wagon W461 pickup truck is said to be one of just nine that were imported into the United States, it’s from a time well before the G Wagon (later known as the G Class) became a luxury status symbol – back when it was still a military-spec off-roader.

This rare pickup truck variant has seating for two up front in an air-conditioned cab, it has a tray back in the rear with fold down sides and a fold down rear for easy access to cargo, and it’s powered by a 2.9 liter turbodiesel engine. more

  1. I have a couple Mercedes Benz. They are called Mer-seh-deeze. That’s how you say it. We don’t say the Bends part.

    I should probably be killed, too. It not my fault, bro.

  2. G-Wagon has a weird history in US. Designed in the 70s as a military jeep, they didn’t bring them into the US but one dealer in AZ started bringing them in grey-market in the 90s and selling them for $130k, and that was the small engine. And was selling them like hotcakes. So MBZ finally officially brought theme here. I can’t see the value – but I haven’t been in one, couldn’t say for certain until I’ve actually been in one.

  3. I can’t see a G-Wagon without being reminded of one of my all time favorite commercials. Two crash test dummies in a G-W crash through the obstacle and out the back wall of test facility to go joy riding in the country. Wheeee!

  4. I am a Mercedes fan. Always have been. On of these days(if & when)I retire, I will be looking for an ’83 to ’86 AMG Mercedes. The original “Hammer” cars, as they were called. V-12 Bi-Turbo thrashers! Anywhere from 570 to 641 HP! A man can dream!
