Description

 

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagon, short for Geländewagen (cross-country vehicle), is characterised by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. The G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler’s history. It was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran and offered as a civilian version in 1979.

 

A new version was expected for 2007, but ultimately whilst the new GL-Class is a fine performing product in the Mercedes tradition, it was not sufficient to steal the affection for the classic Geländewagen. And so the G-Wagon is still in production and selling well to the current day.

 

With a very low mileage of 17,000 kilometres from new, this 280GE was first used by the German army, hence the camouflage paintwork and removable fabric roof and windscreen for use in warmer climates around the world. Now offered from a private collector, this a fantastic fun leisure classic which can be employed for a number of uses all year round.
