1980 Mercedes-Benz G-Class 300GD Additional Info:

This G Wagen was imported from the Netherlands and has the desirable OM603 TurboDiesel with a 5-Speed manual transmission. Very clean and solid overall for a classic W460 G Wagen that is 40+ years old now. Gets up to freeway speeds easily and is able to cruise no problem, unlike the lower powered N/A Diesels!
No rust on the frame or anything major. There appears to be minor corrosion under the tail light at the rear, which is a common spot for these Gs. The rear corner sheet metal can still be purchased new from Mercedes, but overall the rust for a G of this vintage is very good. Only other noticeable spots are under the rear door or 2, but again minor. Runs and drives great, although the battery is on its way out, I will have a new one installed for the buyer.
The truck was repainted in the metallic dark grey and the interior was reupholstered in black leather. Seats are clean with no rips. Interior is clean.
I keep it mostly stored and covered, and over the past year, have not noticed any leaks on my floor. No grinds in the transmission and it starts right up.

Note: the snorkel in the pictures has since been removed so there are holes left over in the fender from it. Will need to reinstall a snorkel or just get them patched up. The original airbox will be included.
The passenger side mirror is off in the pictures, but a replacement mirror will be included. Front bull bar on the bumper has since been removed. Everything else as seen in the pictures is intact.
Titled as a 1980 year with about 90,000 Kilometers (or 56,000 miles). All importation paperwork was done correctly and it currently has a Montana title and registration, in hand. Front and Rear differential locks.
Feel free to message me with any questions or if you would like to talk more about the truck.
