Description

"The Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagon, short for Geländewagen (cross-country vehicle), is characterised by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. The G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz vehicles in their history with a span of 32 years. It was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran and offered as a civilian version in 1979. The first major refinements were introduced in 1981, including an automatic transmission, air conditioning, an auxiliary fuel tank, protective headlamp grilles and a cable winch. Fuel injection became available in 1982 when the 230GE was introduced in Turin, along with more comfortable and supportive front seats, auxiliary heating, wider tyres and wheel arches. For 1985, differential locks, central door locking and a tachometer became standard.
Registered new on 1st August 1991, this automatic 3.0 litre GEL Mercedes G-Wagon presents well in black over grey trim and fitted with a new exterior bodykit package to provide the car with a modern G-Wagon appearance. These desirable long wheelbase examples are incredibly competent and this is no exception. Having recently benefitted from a service which included an oil change, new front discs and pads and a replacement exhaust. Within the history file are receipts from the maintenance history and an original owner’s manual coupled to an MoT test certificate valid until June 2022 with no advisories.
