1982 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Turn Key G-Wagon! Fresh Paint, Service and Tires1982 Mercedes Benz 300GD
This Gelandewagen started life as civilian use G-Wagon. Therefore, it has been spared the hard life of a military vehicle.Odometer shows only 25,712 Kilometers (~16k Miles). Based on the condition of the interior, the miles may be original.
I acquired this G-Wagon as a nice nice original truck that was stored indoors for many years. I setout to make a nice, driver level G-Wagon.
It had the usual G rust in the usual spots, rear tail panels and rockers. I had a small local shop repair the rust using MB patch panels. The G was alsorepaintedin its original Red. The paint has excellent luster and commands attention. I also had all the black parts repainted. Of course, I didn't go for show level work as I suspect this G will be used for more than getting groceries.While you should expect some imperfections, overall the paint and body is excellent driver level quality.
With paint work complete, I focused on themechanical. The mechanical aspects were excellent to begin with. I hada local Mercedesspecialist renew all fluids and filters, new Kuhmo Tires were fitted and Alignment performed, a new Steering Shock was installed to eliminate the typical G wheel vibration. A new battery and battery tray were installed. I also had a new set of Hella Fog Lamps installed.
At this point, thedesirable 5CylinderDiesel Engine Runs Excellent.Essentially the same engine as the Iconic 300D, these engines can run forever. TheAutomatic Transmission Shifts Precisely. The Steering is straight and true whether accelerating, braking orcruising. The Brakes are firm and operate perfectly. I drove the G around town this past weekend and it performed flawlessly. See video, below.
The Interior was very nice to begin with and indicative of a low mileage G. After a full detail, the interior looks amazing.I had a Marine Radio and Speakers installed. Trust me, you'll appreciate the Marine components the first time you forget the top off in the rain!The Kenwood stereo offers all the latest tech, Bluetooth, XM, Pandora, etc and the set of four Sony speakers sound great!
I did not address the following items: the a/c system is complete but does not work. The Softtop has a few small holes that need patching. The floors have some rust as you can see in photos. The body shop didn't address it and I figure it's an easy enough DIY job best left to the new owner.
Overall, this is an Excellent driver level G that's ready to be enjoyed! You'll be hard pressed to find a G with a better color combination and in better condition. Most G's have been used and abused, this G presents as a low mileage G and has excellent curb appeal!
I can arrange domestic and international shipping.
