1985 Mercedes-Benz 280GE
Or it’s an overpriced Jeep, depending on how you look at it. We never saw the Gelandewagen here in the US in the ’80s except by grey-market private import, so these had a certain cachet as an expensive luxury car. But it’s still a rugged, bare-bones offroader.
Heck, this one doesn’t even have air conditioning!
Still, this gives you the opportunity to off-road in open-air style.
It’s on eBay in southern California for $44k or best offer.
