The Model –Developed in the 1970’s primarily for use by various military organizations, starting in 1979 Mercedes-Benz began to market the Gelandewagen series to the public. One of the earliest versions was the 460 series, which was offered in a number of choices, both body wise and power plant. The most powerful and desirable was the 300GD, with its 3.0 Liter diesel power that provided enough horsepower to get down the road as well as plenty of torque to pull the sturdy vehicles out of just about any situation. Offered in both long-wheel base 4-dr models and the more popular and maneuverable short wheelbase models, the G-wagon’s legacy has continued to this very date. With variations of the “G-wagon” used by over 40 different countries include the USA, as well as Russia and even North Korea, it is a truly international vehicle with worldwide respect.
The Vehicle – It is unusual for an early G-wagon to come to auction, especially in the USA. Our research shows this 300GD was originally sold as an export from Germany to South America. It has been given a recent cosmetic re-do and mechanical tune-up to allow it to start up easy, ready to go wherever the road may lead. The best part is that this G-wagen can make its own road if needed. Finished in Gloss Black it rides on a special set of BBS alloy wheels, with heavy-duty off road tires. Up front is a 12,000 pound capacity Badlands Winch, ready to help a fellow off-roader, or should the rare need arise, pull itself out of a jamb. The interior is finished in durable black vinyl, with an upgraded sound system and full instrumentation. Currently registered in the state of New York, this is a vehicle that is ready to take on anything you can give it, as long as you raise your hand and bid on another legendary vehicle from Mercedes-Benz.
