This Brabus has lived the majority of its life in Florida where it was with it's previous owner for over 20 years stateside. Originally, the vehicle was imported from Germany. No rust is found anywhere on the body including the bottoms of all four doors, around windows, and along the roofline. All W463s are susceptible to rust in these locations but given none is present on this Brabus, it's clear this G-Class has been well kept and cared for. Underbody photos are provided in the gallery below showing the frame and other components to also be in great condition and free from corrosion as well. Brabus specific plates and badging are found on the windshield, under the hood along the side of the engine bay, and on the firewall which further indicates how attentive the company was to custom builds on any platform.
The W463 is known as a fully capable off-road vehicle but by the time Brabus got a hold of this one, it should be praised for its on-road prowess as well. The G-Class was originally developed as a military military vehicle and was first offered to the public in 1979 as the Mercedes-Benz Galendawagen (German for cross-country vehicle). The North American markets were not offered the G-Class until 2002 so any earlier models seen stateside are federalized imports. These W463s are one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road and have reliably proven to withstand the test of time. G Wagons seem to only become more popular and even a base model full of rust will run you near $20k today. Rare specs such as this are certainly in rare air and the opportunity to add one to your collection is few and far between at best. Blakley's 300GE 3.6L Brabus is being offered exclusively through The MB Market.
Update: This 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300GE 3.6 Brabus sold to a new owner who decided to install an all new suspension set up with new wheels and tires. Additional maintenance items were also performed at Blue Ridge MB and the vehicle will be available on auction beginning March 1st, 2021 on The MB Market.
