1984 Mercedes-Benz G-Class 280GE W460 for sale
1984 Mercedes-Benz 280GE Gelandewagen Cabrio SWB
Few vehicles are as distinctive and unique as the W460 chassis Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Although there are other vehicles that are instantly recognizable - the Gullwing Mercedes. the '57 Chevy. and the DeLorean to name a few - there is no other vehicle so classy. yet so capable as Gelandewagen Mercedes-Benz.
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class. sometimes called G-Wagen (short for Geländewagen. "cross country vehicle"). is a mid-size four-wheel drive luxury SUV manufactured by Magna Steyr (formerly Steyr-Daimler-Puch) in Austria and sold by Mercedes-Benz. In certain markets. it has been sold under the Puch name as Puch G.
The G-wagen is characterized by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials. one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. Despite the introduction of an intended replacement. the unibody SUV Mercedes-Benz GL-Class in 2006. the G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler's history. with a span of 35 years. Only the Unimog surpasses it.
The G-class was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran (at the time a significant Mercedes shareholder) to Mercedes and offered as a civilian version in 1979.
It was not available from Mercedes-Benz in the United States until 2002. although this was preceded by a grey-market where even basic models commanded six-figure prices in the 1990s.
What we have for sale today is a SUPER RARE 1984 Mercedes 280GE Cabrio! (VIN#46021217036302)
It features most powerful engine offered at the time – bulletproof 2. 8 inline 6. combined with highly desirable 5-speed manual transmission! With this drivetrain combination you can zip down the highway with ease toward your desired destination – classy night out. or a dirty and fun-filled day off road!!!! 2. 8 straight 6 engine is much more powerful and civil than its 4 cylinder gasoline. or its diesel siblings.
This Mercedes was purchased new in 1984 in Germany by an American Businessman who lived there for few years. and then Imported to US in 1987 upon his arrival back home. This G-Wagen spent its whole life in dry Tennesse. which explains its super solid and rust free condition!!
This Beautiful Benz was parked in a barn in 2006. as its owner started going through a divorce. Unfortunately life happened. and this Benz just continued to sit in his barn on a 300 Acre Property without being touched or driven.
Before it was parked. it was running. but now. as it sat for too long. its original 2. 8 Liter fuel injected I6 engine will start on starting fluid (please see video below!). With fresh tune-up. fresh gas. and some Tender Loving Care and general checkup this G-Wagen should be hitting trails in no time!!!
This Mercedes is a fun and easy project. and it is perfect for somebody who wants to do a full cosmetic restoration. and have a wonderful show truck and the investment. OR for somebody who can get it running to be their daily driver. and then slowly restore it to its full beauty at their own pace. but in the meantime taking it out to the beach and off-roading without worrying about scratching the paint!
As you can see in the pictures. its ORIGINAL Anthracite Gray Metallic paint is showing its age - mostly from sitting in a barn for the past 10 years and sun hitting it through the barn windows. but if re-sprayed back to its fully glory this truck would look amazing! Body is very straight and solid. so re-paint to an original color should be very easy and straight forward process!
This G-Wagen is very solid and rust free!!! Body and undercarriage are very straight. solid and original!! All gaps are proper. and all doors. hood and trunk are opening and closing as they should!!
This is a very solid and most importantly UNMOLESTED example of W460 G-Wagen!! Because of its intended use as an ultimate off-road vehicle. there are some “Frankenstein” G-Wagens out there. and finding one to be free of horrors and torture from its previous owners and incompetent body shops trying to hide rust. and days of its hard use and abuse are getting harder and harder by the minute!!!!
When you wipe the dust off the inside of the fender-wells. original paint is revealed!!! Same thing with the original floors!!! All solid and rust free!!! There are no numerous coats of undercoatings. bondo. or God knows what when previous owners tried to hide or “protect it” from rust! Frame rails are perfect. solid and they look brand new. showing its original factory powdercoating!
Original VIN Number Stamping is also present on its passenger side frame rail – another rare and desirable “Item” on the long list of Original G-Wagen Traits and requirements if you wish to own best of the best!!!
These trucks are built tough. meant to be used. abused. played hard. and put away wet. and many are as they are ultimate off road vehicles. but finding one that was loved and cared for its whole life is getting to be a hard task.
Just look at the pictures. and you will get an idea of how solid and beautifully preserved this G-Wagen truly is!! It is literally a “Diamiond in the Rough!”
Original Interior is all there and is complete down to its original Clock! This G-Wagen also comes with Factory A/C. rare and highly desirable option back in the 80's!
All in all this is a very nice. complete and unmolested truck. that has a lot of potential. and considering its history and heritage it will make a very nice and fun project. and great return on investment!!!
Being a rare Cabrio model. it is even more valuable and desirable!! You know what they say: “if the top goes down. then the price goes up!”!! What a better way to enjoy the beach or the outdoors. than from its Cabriolet G-Wagen!!!
Original Tool Set and Owners manuals. including Original Owner Registration are present as well!
Title is clear and is ready to be transferred immediately ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!!!
