Due to moving overseas, I am very sad to be selling what is probably one of the finest examples of the Mercedes G Wagen W460 in the UK. I've been working on these vehicles for quite a few years and this is my own personal G Wagen. The private plate G12 WGN would be included with the vehicle too as I have no other Gs left.
It has low mileage for its age and I've loved travelling the country in it. This is not a vehicle that requires overhaul, or investment after purchase. I keep it in perfect condition year round, and it runs like it just left the factory as a result. I have a huge service history, workshop manuals etc that will come with the vehicle. You are buying a mechanically 100% sound, original 1990 W460 G Wagen that is ready to be enjoyed immediately. MOTd until April 2020. I'm very happy to have it inspected by mechanics before purchase if you require.
As this was going to be my forever Wagen, I overhauled/serviced all of the big ticket items a few years ago (axles, transfer case, gearbox etc). This was a huge effort in terms of time and money but meant that I could travel the country with peace of mind. Please see the details below for full list of what has been done recently. Tyres are General Grabber AT2s - great for high and low traction and low road noise. The chassis is in great condition (highly unusual for these vehicles as many of them used for towing boats in and out of the water). Every mechanic of mine that has worked on it thinks it is in remarkable condition.
It is a joy to drive and easy to work on. JWL Classics in Hampshire have been exceptional in ensuring the engine is operating as efficiently as new. (Annual fuel pressures, cylinder pressures, testing for air leaks, KJetronic injection checking etc.)
Please do ask questions on the details below, any G Wagen enthusiasts most welcome but so long as you can love driving it and take care of it, you'll appreciate why these are my favourite vehicles on the planet. Vehicle is currently in Surrey but I've arranged transporters for Wagens in the past.
Below is a list of significant work that has been done in the last couple of years and useful service history. I've prioritised things any G Wagen owner should know are things to check on any G Wagen. All paperwork supplied with vehicle for the below:

Full service (engine, axle, diff oils etc replaced and filters changed)
Front rubber window seals replaced
New rear fog light unit
New rear brake light unit
