1992 Mercedes-Benz 300GD G-Wagen (W463)
3-door manual 'box 3.0 diesel (OM603 engine) with turbocharger fitted, sunroof
and burr walnut trim showing just 115,480 miles by its five owners
Dating from August 1992, this W463 itineration of the legendry G-Wagon
is of the ‘newer’ extensively revised generation which saw a move away from
spartan utilitarian style of the past to a more luxury based specification to
rival the Range Rover.
Finished in light blue metallic and in desirable
3-door form, the vehicle is in 300GD spec with used the venerable OM603 series
3.0 diesel engine, usually naturally aspirated and developing 111bhp.
Looking at this car however, it is evident that a previous owner
decided that wasn’t sufficient and has fitted a turbo charger - or possibly
changed the engine to the 3.0 OM606 turbo diesel unit or a 3.5 OM603.972 turbo
diesel unit. This is not clear as the vehicle's history has been lost bar
the V5C and current MOT which is valid until April 2022 with 2 minor
advisories for brake pads recorded.
The G presents well with
straight body-work showing few signs of its age or its meagre 115,480 indicated
miles. The interior looks clean and tidy and it started and drove well when we
moved it around for these images, although bidders are advised that this
was onsite and although at low speeds, we were unable to detect
any effect from this Turbo addition.
A super alternative to a classic
Range Rover or Land Rover, these go anywhere machines have a certain something
about them that makes them acceptable and oh-so-cool no matter where you take
them – hence why they cost what they do and are still being built by
Mercedes.For more information - contact
