1989 Steyr Daimler Puch (Mercedes) 300GD
2 Doors, Short Wheelbase, Four Wheel Drive
eBay does not recognize European VIN's.
The actual VIN is VAG46033217904668
Commonly referred to as a G-Wagen and built in
Graz, Austria in partnership with Mercedes Benz.
Designed by Mercedes and assembled by SDP.
All the parts are available from Mercedes dealers and through other specialty dealers in the U.S.
Using Mercedes Online Parts Catalog (EPC) and inputting the VIN you can look up all the parts.
There is no difference between the Puch badged and Mercedes badged models other than the nameplates.
In fact,you can buy the 3 Mercedes badges (grill, steering wheel and
back door) and visually convert it to a Mercedes.
This model is a 2 door with no rear seat but a large cargo area.
Included but not shown is the factory cargo divider panel and screen.
It also has the factory installed heavier rear springs forincreased cargo capacity.
It was originally sold to a customer in Switzerland andwas repainted before being legally imported to the U.S.
It has approximately 83,000 kilometers on the odometer.
It is equipped with the Mercedes OM 617 5 cylinder diesel and the rare 5-speed manual transmission.
I have replaced many parts including tires, battery, v-belts, suspension bushings, wiper blades,
headlights, glow plugs and much more. (full list available)
All filters and fluids have been changed and aLiqui Moly Diesel Purge was completed.
Spare tire & wheel is included but not shown in the photos. There is no mount for the spare.
It drives very nicely and handles well.
It has lots of torque but modest acceleration as is commonfor this engine.
It will cruise at highway speeds and getsreasonable mileage.
All mechanicals (brakes, clutch, etc.) work correctly. The 4-wheel drive, both hi and low range, works fine.
The heater works very well. The valve cover gasket has some
very minor seepage, about 1 drop every 200 miles.
A new valve cover gasket is included.
Titled and registered in Wisconsin as a Sport Utility.
Ready to be picked up and driven home.
