Here’s a real-deal Mercedes-Benz G-Class for sale

It’s going to be slow. But it’s also going to be unstoppable. This is a real-deal G-Class, and it’s for sale in San Pedro, California. The 1986 Mercedes-Benz G300D is powered by an inline five-cylinder engine that makes around 90 horsepower. Thankfully, it’s backed up by a manual gearbox, so you can run the engine out and make the most of its available power. And if you’re driving it in the dirt, this old-school G-Class will get you out through any adventure and back home again, with ease.

Here’s the text from the ad:

We are selling our rare 1986 Mercedes G300 diesel G wagon. It was imported from the Netherlands and we have owned it approximately two years. We love the vehicle we just aren’t using it enough. We recently spent over 5k on service updating anything and everything regarding its preventive maintenance. We have all receipts for work completed. It’s very clean for its age and runs like a champ. It has the four speed manual transmission. Low Kilos 21,000 KM showing on the dash which we think reflect 121k kilometers. No air conditioning but it could be added if desired. It has five good tires. This vehicle has so much personality from the rear spare tire barbecue cover to the rear cargo jump seats. Minimal rust showing on lower back door area that can be seen in the pictures. This would make the perfect surf vehicle, island cruiser, or mountain home off roader. These diesels are slow but steady and are very reliable. I’ve been told it is a million mile engine. Clean current Ca. title. Call for more details. Serious inquiries only call please. Lowball text will be ignored. No trades Call 31088088one9

The asking price is $17,500. Not bad for a great older Benz off-roader with under 80,000 miles on it. And that diesel engine should be able to outlast the heat death of the universe. It’s just starting to get broken in. Someone needs to scoop this up and set off on an adventure.

    I like this quite a bit, but not enough to make a play on it.

    In related news, with the recession, where are the new car/truck deals to be found in the near future? Is it in the area where people normally finance for 84 months, which is everywhere?

      When oil prices were high, there were deals to be found in full-sized SUVs and trucks. Customers wanted fuel-sippers, hybrids, and EVs, and off-lease guzzlers could be had for a song during the rush to trade in.

      This week, crude oil hit an 18-year low, and interest rates are close to flipping into negative territory. Car shoppers will have no reason not to put a big-ass Suburban in the driveway. I would look for the bargains in the electric car arena, especially with any carmaker not headed by Musk.

    this one’s been for sale for months. price has only recently started dropping, and then slowly. something’s gotta be wrong with it because the price seems decent.
