1991 MERCEDES-BENZ 250 GD SUV
Seemingly unrestored, this 1991 Mercedes-Benz 250 GD SUV is highly desirable regardless. A two-door, short wheelbase convertible, it's powered by a 2.5L, inline five-cylinder diesel mated to a manual transmission sending 84 hp to all four wheels. Its light olive green color and matching jerrycan give it a military look, while an aftermarket stereo and wood-lined cargo area give it some level of creature comfort. As the G-Class wasn't officially launched in the US until 2001, this example was imported and modified to meet DOT regulations, but retains its km/h speedo, with under 40,000 km — or just a hair over 24,000 miles — on the odometer.
