1992 Mercedes Benz 300GD (W463)

SWB 3-door manual 'box 3.0 diesel (OM603 engine) with turbocharger fitted, sunroof and burr walnut trim showing just 115,500 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 gorgeous light blue metallic and in desirable 3-door form the vehicle is in 300GD spec with uses the venerable OM603 series 3.0 diesel engine, usually naturally aspirated and developing 111bhp, however looking under the bonnet it evident a previous owner decided that wasn’t sufficient and has fitted a turbo charger, or changed the engine to the 3.0 OM606 turbo diesel unit or 3.5 OM603.972 turbo diesel unit – this is unfortunately not clear as the vehicles history has been lost bar the V5C and current MOT valid until February 2021 with no advisories recorded. However, the G presents well with straight bod-work showing few signs of its age or 115,500 miles. The interior looks clean and tidy. The car started and drove well when we moved it around for these images. 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 ever-so-cool no matter where you’re lucky enough to rock up in one – hence why they still cost what they do and are still being built by Mercedes.
