300GD 1985 Diesel for sale- California Legal

Thank you for the interest -- My G wagon was SOLD on 12/30/06---


This Mercedes Benz 300GD was imported into California when new. It is both currently California registered and legal and includes both DOT and EPA letters of approval.

In 2000 / 2001, it was taken to Europa and they were told to “make it great”. I have $40,000 in receipts from Europa from that time. Some of the work they did included-

New Metrix diesel engine
New out-of-box Mercedes 5-speed transmission
New Clutch
Complete Front end rebuild
Complete Rear end rebuild
New front and rear drive shafts.

It has been maintained in original stock configuration and has always had meticulous, regular, and complete maintenance, with no short-cuts. It has always been garaged. It runs and drives as good as new, always completely reliable.

Some of the features include-

5-Speed Transmission
Mercedes factory installed air conditioning
300 Diesel engine (always reliable – never any oil use between changes)
Factory Alloy wheels
Front and rear factory locking differentials
Optional factory oversize 26 gal fuel system
Rear seats option (9 passenger seating - with seat belts)
Burl wood dash
Electric remote door locks
Cruise control
CD radio with 5-disc changer
Custom sheep skin seat covers- front and rear, (factory original matching cloth upholstery underneath is in top condition)
Original tools, first aid kit, warning triangle, books
Never any rust

SOLD --- NO LONGER AVAILABLE

If the truck is still available, how many miles on the chassis and how many miles on the new engine?

Is it MB Tex or that plaid stuff?
