1980 G-Class W460 280GE G Wagen $13999

For sale is a my 1980 Mercedes Benz W460 280GE Gelaendewagen G Wagon. I purchased this Gwagen a little over a month ago on EBay. I am selling ONLY to buy a G500. After driving, I need a bit more horsepower to tow my boat and jet skis thru hilly Tenessee. I have turned this GWagen into a VERY mechanically sound truck. I would drive it anywhere now.

Open to offers!

Here is what the previous owner did:
New Yokohama tires
Some body panels and ledges
CD radio with weather band and aux
Power steering pump
Rebuilt power steering box
Renew brand gas tank guaranteed for life
Bosch fuel pump
Bosch head and fog lights
Paint without clear coat

What the best import mechanic in Nashville has done:
Installed catalytic converter for emissions
Replaced spark plugs
Ignition wiring
Distributor cap
Distributor rotor
Fuel injectors and seals
Check valve
Air cleaner mount
Throttle bushings
Oil filter
Warm up regulator
Adjusted all the doors so they close and latch correctly

This G passed emissions on 02/15/2008. To plate it, I will have to pay 9.25% sales tax and I hope to sell it before plating.

What the truck needs (that I am aware of):
Rocker panels have some rust
Drivers side floor underneathe has some rust
Small amount of rust around the tail lights in back
Small amount of rust on tire fender
Window needs a new seal (ordering that)
Driver door upolstery has been reattached
Paint job is not to my liking

If you are interested in a GWagen that is mechanically sound and can wait awhile to fix the other things, this one is it. I have $14,500 invested and alot of time . Have the receipts to prove it.

Email me with any questions and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.
