This 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300GE was originally ordered for the Italian market and now resides in Germany with the selling dealer. Finished in Anthracite Grey Metallic (172) over Grey cloth upholstery, power comes from a 3.0L engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Additional features include automatic climate control with factory air conditioning, differential lockers, a sliding sunroof, anti-lock brakes, and more. Recent service includes a fresh oil & filter change, new springs, new shocks, and a full dry ice treatment of the underbody. The odometer currently shows 204,350 kilometers (~127k miles) and this W463 comes with a stamped service booklet, partial service records, one factory key, and a clean Italian title.
The interior is trimmed in Grey cloth with matching door cards and accented with zebrano wood trim on the door panels, dashboard, and center console. All upholstery and wood presents in excellent condition. Ameneties include BEHR Air Conditioning, electric windows, power-adjustable side mirrors, rear headrests, front armrests, a sliding sunroof, and the original Becker head unit.
The factory M103 engine sends power to all four wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. The truck features 3 differential lockers controlled by switches on the dash. Recent service includes new springs and shocks, along with a fresh oil & filter change. The seller notes the underbody has been fully dry-iced in preparation for the sale followed by a coating of transparent wax and shows no corrosion. Photos are viewable in the gallery.
This four-door W463 is the German variation of a Land Rover Defender, but does everything better than its British counterpart because of its mix of style, timelessness, dependability, and reliable ancillaries. Manufactured in the Steyr-Daimler-Puch factory in Austria, this Geländewagen packs an off-road wallop with the locking differentials and we’re confident this G would lick up a rocky overlanding trail like a greased weasel. The powerful and dependable 3.0-liter M103 engine not only gives this rig good power to pavement driving, but would add a livability factor to this otherwise primitive vehicle. These engines when wrung out in high RPMs are so smooth you can hardly tell you’re running them out close to redline other than the whisper quiet turbine-like woosh they make at highway speeds. This particular example has a tidy engine bay and clean underbody which is imperative for longevity. Rarely are examples found in this excellent of condition. This is a turn key ready to go G wagen that provides the perfect blend of classic Mercedes style with utilitarian capability.
