 Vehicle Description
This 1984 Mercedes-Benz 280 GE offers an intriguing alternative to Land Rovers or Land Cruisers from the same era. Although not imported officially until model year 2002, legal grey market imports over 25 years old have started showing up stateside. Hand-built with three fully-locking differentials, the basic design of the G-Wagen has changed little since its introduction in 1979.

This example is not a concours restoration, but it''s a very original truck still clad in its original paint so it''s not hiding anything. Some rust bubbles have started along the driver''s side fender and beneath the taillights; no such issues affect the passenger side. The undercarriage is remarkably solid, as well -- floor pans and rockers look great. The only known rust on the underside is on the gas tank shield. Glass and trim are in good condition. The doors still close with a reassuring vault-like precision. Tires are nearly new on BBS 15" aluminum wheels; Bilstein shocks are installed at all four corners.

The interior is original and shows well; aside from minor wear on the driver''s seat and door panel, it has held up remarkably well. Steering wheel, dash and headliner are excellent. All gauges, switches, indicators and lights are working, and the truck still has its original first-aid kit in the passenger foot well.

Under the hood is Mercedes-Benz''s M110 2.8 liter inline six mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. It starts, runs, shifts and drives great, just as you would expect from a Mercedes of this era. Actual mileage is unknown as the odometer is stopped at 20,000 kilometers (yes, the speedometer and odometer read in km).

Clear Georgia title means it''s legal to register in title in 49 states (California may be tricky). This G-Wagen would be great to enjoy as-is, or a fantastic starting point for a custom build given how sound it is. For more information about this 1984 Mercedes-Benz 280GE available at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
