Description

- Desirable short wheelbase, 3-litre diesel, five-speed manual example

- 32 entries in the service book and MOT'd till October 2018

Development of the G-Wagen - short for Gelandewagen or 'Cross Country Vehicle' - began during the early 1970s at the suggestion of the Shah of Iran (then a major Mercedes-Benz shareholder). Exhaustively tested amidst the German coalfields, Sahara Desert and Artic Circle, the first workable prototype emerged during 1974. Entering production five years later, the G-Wagen began its metamorphosis from functional off-roader to luxury SUV in 1981 when niceties such as air-conditioning and automatic transmission joined the options list. Available in short- and long-wheelbase guises, Mercedes-Benz's evergreen 4x4 was thoroughly revised for 1990. Rechristened the 463 G-Class, it gained a trio of electric locking differentials, full-time 4WD, ABS brakes and an upgraded interior complete with wooden accents.

Supplied new by main dealer Monarch Cars (Tamworth) Ltd, 'L766 COJ' returned to them for regular maintenance up until 118,242 miles. Entrusted to Marques of Tamworth and LA Services thereafter, its last oil change was apparently carried out some 2,000 miles ago at an indicated 166,085 miles. Part of the Old Hall collection since May 2003, this desirable short-wheelbase 463 G-Class is powered by a 3-litre straight-six diesel engine allied to five -speed manual transmission. Offered for sale with original book pack and MOT certificate valid until October 2018.
