1992 Mercedes-Benz 300GD G-Wagen (W463)
SWB 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.
