Rare Short Wheelbase Cabriolet Version
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.
Stunning in metallic black with a matching hood and black leather interior, this G300TD was delivered new to Germany, supplied in desirable Short Wheelbase specification with a cabriolet roof.
Offered with a stamped service book and Certificate of Conformity, our G-class looks amazing in triple black with period-correct Mercedes light alloy wheels. A huge amount of summer classic motoring for the whole family, and a highly capable classic for the whole year round.
