2001 Mercedes-Benz E320 Pick-Up Truck

Here's something you don't see every day. A 2001 Mercedes E-Class pick up truck.

Jalopnik
featured one of these back in 2006. I've never seen another one.

The seller states that this was built by Mercedes and is 1 of 2 in the US. It was custom ordered by Atlanta Classic Cars, a Georgia based Mercedes Benz dealer. It now has 12,522 miles on it and is being described as "mint".

This is most likely a different vehicle from the one Jalopnik featured. The Jalopnik article was picked up by eMercedesBenz.com. According to them, the car being offered in 2006 was a 2000 MY with 16,000 miles on it.

I can find very little information about the history of these vehicles. I assume this was once a flower car for a funeral home, but there's no real reason it couldn't be used as a light duty pick-up.

You could buy a lot of nice old cars for $30,000.00. However, if you're in the market for something unique, but something you could drive everyday, this Mercedes Benz pick up truck would be hard to beat.

Located in Marietta, GA, click here to see the AutoTrader.com listing for this vehicle.

A huge thanks to my friend, Jon, for pointing this out to me! (Jon ended his e-mail with the sentence "Imagine the possibilities if it were a 4MATIC with just a tad of lift". I love the way he thinks.)
