Legacy Overland 1990 Mercedes Benz G “Wolf”

We’ve featured a lot of car customisations here on the pages of The Coolector but the majority have been Land Rovers typically so it’s always good to tackle some other steeds and we’ve not seen many better than this extraordinary 1990 Mercedes Benz G Wolf from the talented team at Legacy Overland. Taking an absolute shell of a vehicle and completely rejuvenating it, this stunning ride is definitely up our street from a style point of view and Legacy Overland have gone that extra mile to ensure that it delivers an impeccable performance.


The Legacy Overland 1990 Mercedes Benz G “Wolf” was born in the military, before going on to conquer any and all civilian challenges that it has encountered over the years. This majestic offering from the workshop of Legacy Overland expertly combines the robustness of its heritage with the elegance of a connoisseur. Boasting a mighty striking colourway of “Sandstorm Yellow” and luxurious soft top, this is one ride that is going to turn plenty of heads wherever it goes.

Robust Reliability

A machine that yo can count on, the Legacy Overland 1990 Mercedes Benz G “Wolf” has one of the world’s most reliable engines ever developed: namely, the legendary OM-series 5-cylinder diesel engine. The drivetrain is just as proficient and capable with its 5-speed manual gearbox, and “1/2” gear for high-torque take off, lockable four-wheel drive with axle locks, which makes this a real off-roading machine letting you go anywhere the adventure takes you.


When you head inside the Legacy Overland 1990 Mercedes Benz G “Wolf” the goods news just keeps on coming. It has been wonderfully upgraded to boast a custom design interior that has vegan leather front bucket seats, doors and foldable rear jump seats. The lighting is also mighty impressive and the road ahead is illuminated by angel-eyes LED headlights, auxiliary fog lights with rear LED lamps. Technology is another key component of this eye-catching steed and it is provided by a Pioneer Bluetooth enabled sound system with hands-free microphone and a five-speaker set-up.

Aggressive and uncompromising in nature, this is one ride that is ready to tackle anything and the 1990 Mercedes Benz G “Wolf” from Legacy Overland has plenty of stand out features that will impress. These include the 5-cylinder 2.5L diesel engine, powder coated chassis and components, vinyl floor mats with edge trim, Cooper Discoverer STT PRO LT315/75 R16 tires, Canadian military-style snorkel and a robust, steel bull guard.

Majestic Mercedes

Whilst it is often Land Rover customisation jobs that turn our heads here at Coolector HQ, this Mercedes Benz renovation from Legacy Overland has achieved that as well. You can really see the attention to detail and effort that has gone into retuning this beat up old Mercedes Benz to its former glory and it’s testament to the design talents of Legacy Overland that it looks better than new now.

If you’re a fan of first class customisation and renovation jobs, Legacy Overland are certainly a workshop that need to be on your radar as they’re up there with the likes of Arkonik and Cool & Vintage in our opinion here at The Coolector. And, it’s safe to say, this 1990 Mercedes Benz G “Wolf” does a superb job of proving that very point.
