For Sale: 1991 Mercedes-Benz 250GD in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this spectacularly restored 1991 Mercedes-Benz 250GD for your consideration. This 250GD was professionally restored by the Expedition Motor Company out of Frenchtown, NJ. The Expedition Motor Company's restoration process begins with scouring Europe for high quality Gelandewagens. They often use military connections to source high-grade vehicles that will result in an exceptional final product. Once an example has been selected, the vehicle is imported to the States where it begins the next step in the restoration process. Each truck undergoes a full inspection and fifty mile test drive upon arrival at the restoration facility. The transmission and engine are also opened up and examined to identify what refurbishments are needed. Following these stages, each truck is disassembled down to the frame and sandblasted. Every single bolt, screw, hose, line, and switch is removed from the vehicle to ensure that there are no hidden surprises. The next step is restoring the brake and suspension components along with other components of the driveline. Everything is completely overhauled from the fuel tanks to the electrical system to ensure a quality final product. In the same vein, the engine and transmission receive replacement parts for worn components and are completely rebuilt if necessary. After everything is mechanically sound, the body panels are stripped down to bare metal and prepped for a top-shelf paint job. After everything has been restored, the assembly process begins and is concluded with a thorough 125-mile test drive in varying conditions to test the vehicle for all circumstances. Then, the vehicle is off to the customer.

For this specific example, the engine was removed and taken apart for assessment in accordance with the Expedition Motor Company's restoration process. It received new front and rear crankshaft seals, new cylinder head bolts, new cylinder head gasket, the radiator was recorded, a new timing belt and water pump were installed, as were a new oil pan gasket and timing belt tensioner pulley. As for the transmission, the gearbox housing was refinished and new seals were installed. This example also received a new clutch and throw-out bearing. The Expedition Motor Company deemed the transfer case to be in good working condition and thus it was just cleaned and reassembled with new seals. The axles were removed from the vehicle and inspected. Everything was reassembled with new seals and gaskets in addition to the bugs being regreased. New brake lines and hoses were installed, the calipers were rebuilt, drums reconditioned, and new pads/shoes, and rotors were installed. Regarding the body, frame, suspension, and steering components, everything was restored in accordance to the process detailed above.

This example is finished in a wonderful Olive Green color and features a Spice vinyl interior. It is powered by the 2.5L diesel motor which routes power to all four wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. There were over 1450 man hours put into this restoration and it is apparent throughout the vehicle that the goal was perfection.
