1990 Mercedes-Benz 250GD Wolf by Expedition Motor Company

1990 Mercedes-Benz 250GD Wolf

1990 Mercedes-Benz 250GD Wolf – For more than 40 years, the Geländewagen (more commonly known as the G-Wagen) has served as one of the most celebrated adventure vehicles in the world. Built to reliably perform in the world’s harshest, most unforgiving terrain, the G-Wagen has become synonymous with elite performance and timeless style. New this year, Expedition Motor Company (EMC) is proud to unveil the company’s latest G-Wagen masterpiece, a fully restored 1990 250GD Wolf that the restoration firm has playfully dubbed “The White Wolf”.

Produced for roughly three years in the early nineties, a limited quantity of these 250GD G-Wagen trucks were built for military use. EMC currently owns the largest stock of Geländewagens in the world with the sole purpose of restoring one specific configuration of these impressively capable vehicles: a two-door convertible G-Wagen that is powered by the original five-cylinder diesel engine.

“Our goal at Expedition Motor Company is to flawlessly restore one of the finest adventure vehicles ever conceived, the G-Wagen. With more than 40 years since the G-Wagen first appeared on the market, our team dedicates thousands of hours on each new build to properly honor this vehicle’s storied heritage,” comments Expedition Motor Company Founder Alex Levin. “The EMC Wolf features military durability and iconic design, but the best part is that these trucks are so versatile. An EMC truck can go anywhere and handle just about any terrain with ease. These trucks can serve as the ultimate beach cruiser while also being fully capable of traversing a winding mountain road without hesitation.”


Adorning a sophisticated white exterior paint scheme along with corresponding mushroom-colored vinyl interior, the latest G-Wagen restoration from Expedition Motor Company stands out as a true work of art. As with each of their latest restorations, Expedition Motor Company spent about 2,100 hours hand-restoring this flawlessly reimagined truck.

Like all EMC builds, this 1990 250GD started its new life with a complete strip-down and media blasting of the truck’s frame before adding anti-corrosive primer and a new powder coat. Brand-new fuel and brake lines and body mounts were then implemented throughout, while the factory axles were disassembled, cleaned and finished with new internals. The brake calipers were reengineered and bolstered with replacement rotors and drums, and EMC’s internally developed suspension is fitted to make this revitalized Wolf ready for modern driving conditions.

This 1990 Wolf features the legendarily durable OM602 2.5L inline-five diesel engine, which is cleaned and rebuilt with new pistons, seals, timing belt, water pump, and other necessary components. Mated to the stout engine block is the stock 711.7 5-speed manual transmission, which gets disassembled, cleaned, and refreshed with new seals, a new clutch, and a new throw-out bearing. The transfer case receives the same treatment to ensure a completely reliable and enjoyable driving experience.

“We’ve had several clients tell us that their EMC Wolf elicits a feeling of freedom and happiness unlike anything they’ve ever driven before. Owning a G-Wagen like this is a rare asset that very few others have in their collection, and we take great pride in providing a driving experience that few other vehicles can emulate,” continues Levin. “We fully understand that the driving experience of an EMC Wolf is not for everyone, but for those chasing the authentically rugged experience of driving a go-anywhere, do-anything type of truck, we are able to provide that without question.”
