For over 40 years now, the cross-country G-Wagen has been lauded for its capable construction, attractive styling, and world-class performance throughout a number of harsh environments. The ex-military 250GD, especially, has become a symbol of the vehicle’s commitment to excellence — and now, Expedition Motor Co. has decided to pay homage to the past four decades of the G-Wagen with a series of custom ‘Wolf’ builds.
Expedition’s newest collection gives light to a handful of interesting off-road traits, but the inclusion of an all-new two-door convertible/cabriolet soft top body configuration and a fold-down windshield are sure to steal the show for iconic G-Wagen enthusiasts. Each bespoke model comes as a product of the company’s meticulous attention to detail, with over 1,000 hours of hand restoration, and a thorough assembly process that occurs over a 12-16 week period. After a complete strip-down, each bare-metal variant undergoes a strict inspection before it’s admitted to a full-body sandblasting process, outfitted with new fuel/brake lines, reengineered rotors/drums, and an upgraded suspension system. A rebuilt OM6022.5L inline-five diesel engine is accented with improved pistons, seals, belts, and pumps, complementing the Wagen’s various exterior modifications.
