Other Information
Offered from the private collection of a Mercedes-Benz enthusiast
One owner and just 12,985 kilometres from new
Recently serviced and road-ready; an exceptional example throughout
Finished in its original Agave Green over Black
Type 460. 87 bhp, 2,998 cc SOHC inline five-cylinder diesel engine with indirect fuel injection, four-speed manual transmission, independent suspension with shock absorbers and coil springs, and front disc brakes and rear drum brakes. Wheelbase: 2,850 mm
Please note that contrary to the printed catalogue description, this car is equipped with a manual transmission.
Mercedes-Benz introduced the G-Class, or Geländewagen (commonly shortened to G-Wagen), in 1979 as a rugged and robust four-wheel-drive vehicle. It quickly earned a reputation for exceptional build quality and reliability, and it became hugely popular around the world for adventurers wanting to get from point A to point B and let nothing stop them in-between.
Buyers could have their G-Wagen in a variety of different formats and were able to choose from either a long-wheelbase four-door wagon or a two-door short-wheelbase model, with either convertible or wagon bodywork. Of course, these were only the versions available for the public, and a number of different varieties could be had for military or government purposes. Special G-Wagens were even built for the pope! The original Type 460 G-Wagen could be had with petrol and diesel engines as well, with the 300 GD, inline five-cylinder diesel engine being the largest available power plant offered.
Shipped out on 13 April 1981, according to its data card, a copy of which is on file from Mercedes-Benz, this 300 GD is a long-wheelbase version that was originally finished in Agave Green with a black interior, the very same colours it wears today. Delivered new to its current owner in Italy, an avid Mercedes-Benz collector, this example has remained cossetted in his ownership and collection throughout its entire life. While the majority of G-Wagens from this era have led arduous lives, this example clearly has not, and it could very well be one of the finest in existence, having travelled only 12,895 kilometres from new. Presented here in exceptionally well-maintained, original condition, it is more than ready for further use, either on paved roads or not.
Renowned the world over, the G-Wagen is as reliable as it is capable and can tackle any task thrown its way. As a result, many were used hard and put away wet, just as intended. However, finding a pristine, well-kept example can be akin to searching for a needle in a haystack. Benefitting from single ownership in the care of a Mercedes-Benz collector and having limited use from new, this example is ready for anything and would certainly draw compliments wherever it goes, which is anywhere.
