The Mercedes G-Wagen – or more accurately, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class - was initially developed as a military vehicle, supposedly as a result of a suggestion by the Shah of Iran. Work started in 1972 under a joint agreement between Daimler-Benz and Steyr-Daimler-Puch of Graz, Austria, with production of a civilian version beginning in 1979. The vehicle was manufactured by Magna Steyr (formerly Steyr-Daimler-Puch) and sold by Mercedes-Benz. Very much in the style of a Land Rover-type cross-country vehicle, with utilitarian appearance; body-on-frame construction and four-wheel drive with fully locking differentials, the G-Class has achieved a great reputation for durability and reliability. It remains in production and is one of the longest-running series in M-B's history. Over the years it has received several revisions and been available in many body variants with numerous engine options. Whilst the more basic military use has continued, the civilian versions have generally become more powerful, luxurious and sophisticated. The vehicle offered here is a first generation (W460– built between 1979 and 1992) G-Wagen– first registered new in the UK in 1989. It had a couple of owners in the UK prior to being purchased by a Guernsey-based owner in 2019, where it underwent a full mechanical and bodywork restoration. A full record of photos and invoices in respect of the work carried out is held.
 
 
 
This is an opportunity to acquire an original specification G-Wagen, which is in excellent condition having had no expense spared over the recent restoration undertaken. It comes with a sizeable history file covering routine servicing and renovation work carried out. The vehicle is currently Guernsey registered and we can assist with shipping and importing processes if required.
 
The vehicle a long wheelbase, 5-door variant - which is rare for this car. The bodywork has been completely restored and renovated with new OEM sills, bonnet, tailgate, wheelarches and other lower panels. It has been fully resprayed in Nautic Blue to a high standard and fully rewaxed – it is entirely rust free.
 
 
 
The interior is in immaculate conditioning with fully functioning Recaro CSE seats, which offer full electrical adjustment – fore and aft; height; tilt; lumber support; headrest adjustment - and heating.
 
Being the 300GD model, the engine fitted is a 5-cylinder diesel and was the largest and most powerful offered in the W460 series. The vehicle has had a complete mechanical and suspension overhaul and is in excellent running order.
