eBay does not recognize European VIN's.

The actual VIN is VAG46033217904668

Commonly referred to as a G-Wagon and built in

Graz, Austria in partnership with Mercedes Benz.

Designed by Mercedes and assembled by SDP.

European Sold G-Wagons were badged as Puch rather than Mercedes in the late '80s.

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 andback 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 in Switzerland and was repainted before being legally imported to the U.S.

· >It has approximately 83,000 kilometers on the odometer.

· >It's equipped with the Mercedes OM 617 5 cylinder diesel and the rare 5-speed manual transmission.

· >All filters and fluids have been changed and a Liqui Moly Diesel Purge was completed.

· >Spare tire & wheel is included but not shown in the photos.

· >It drives very nicely and handles well. It has lots of torque but modest acceleration as is common for this engine. It will cruise at highway speeds and gets reasonable 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.
