FOR SALE: 1984 W460 300GD Conversion
This one is 50 state legal that means it is legal in CALIFORNIA. For some reason due to the conversion, it is a 1985 Mercedes-Benz Utility vehicle with diesel as fuel type according to CA DMV.
I bought this from a fellow ClubGwagen and Benzworld member over 5 years ago. Last year, I decided to get the engine rebuild at Topline Automobile in Burlingame, CA. It's a hot rod 6 cylinder turbo conversion that has been my daily driver since I got it; so, it is trouble free.
It does need some finishing touches like the proper shift gate and shifter that I did receive from Mike Serpe (clubegwagen) himself! Needs a diesel tach. The vehicle is 25 years old, and the paint has scratches here and there. This is a truck no matter how you want to look at it.
Joel's Site - Biodiesel G Wagen
I have been running B99 biodiesel since I got it. However since the rebuild that included the engine and pump, the folks at Topline wouldn't honor their 6 month warranty unless I used petro diesel. So, there's mostly Chevron dino fuel in her now. I was waiting for the warrany period to be over before I moved back to B99 and into vegatable oil with a heater kit.
My wife and I are thinking of moving out state eventually. It took some effort to bring theis behemoth back to California, and I would rather it stay in this state. It can get 21-22 mpg if you drive it like a diesel truck, but since it's a 6 cylinder turbo, you can keep up with traffic if you wanted to at 18-19 mpg.
$19,000 or B/O. Call or e-mail seriour inquires only.
