Auction Block: 1984 Mercedes-Benz 240 GD

Lately, people have been going pretty gaga over retro SUVs, especially things like the Ford Bronco or International Scout. But, we’ve seen shockingly few examples of one of our favorites: the G-Wagon – probably because people don’t let them go very often. This 1984 Mercedes-Benz 240 GD, however, is about to head to the auction block, and that’s got us pretty pumped.

While it doesn’t boast the craziest performance specs – just 71 horsepower from its 4-cylinder diesel engine and a top speed of 71 mph – it makes up for it with its classic styling and a good amount of off-road capabilities (101 foot-pounds of torque and 4WD). We’re also quite fond of its matte olive green paint job with matching jerry cans, full-length roof rack (complete with what looks like an included Prime Tech rooftop tent and Hi-Lift Jack). Best of all, this classic off-roader is set to be a bit of a bargain, as it’s expected to sell for between just $40,000-$60,000.

Purchase: $40,000+
