The Graz. Austria-based. Magna-Steyr (previously Steyr-Daimler-Puch) continues to hand-assemble the Gelandewagen/G-class for Mercedes-Benz even today. With a major revamp said to be around the corner. the original “W460” chassis civilian G-Wagens are even more appealing. Offering a more clear idea of the original design. they lack the complicated electrics present in our current G-Class and provide more of that old-world. high quality feel that made Mercedes-Benz famous.
This 1985 Mercedes-Benz 280GE was imported into the United States in 2013 through the 25-year exemption and is fully road legal. Purchased from well-known Dutch Gelandewagen experts at G-Zuna (www. g-zuna. nl). this 280GE offers real-world usability with its durable. fuel-injected. twin-cam inline six-cylinder engine and 4-speed automatic transmission.

It's believed to have been repainted at some point. and its current finish shows only minimal evidence of use and some minor corrosion (typical with W460s) still in a manageable state. should one choose to correct. These areas are pictured in gallery.
Mechanically. the 280GE drives as it should and was was recently checked out by the experts at a trusted. vintage Mercedes-Benz independent shop who only found the following areas eventually requiring attention:
-Left front axle “swivel ball” slowly leaking grease-Slight fluid leak from back of transmission
A well-appointed W460. this 280GE uses the top-spec. "M110" gasoline engine and is equipped with 4-speed automatic transmission. front and rear electric windows. factory air conditioning and desirable. fold-down bench seats in cargo area. The original stereo was updated with a JVC radio with AM/FM/CD changer.
