RARE 1983 Mercedes 300GD Turbo G-Wagen Cabriolet
This is a FACTORY cabriolet/converEble with hardtop. Mercedes-Benz never officially imported the G-Class Cabriolet to the United States, so this is a rare truck. It was originally fiTed with a naturally aspirated 300D five cylinder diesel 4 speed, but the original owner wanted some more power, so he had the dealer replace it with a new turbo 300D along with a 5-speed Getrag gearbox. The result is a Jeep killer that can go highway speeds all day long. It has hydraulic locking front, center and rear differenEals. It can be shi[ed and locked on the fly, just like the Pinzgauers that came from the same factory.
This truck is well-known among US G-Wagen enthusiasts, and has a massive file of records that comes with it. Most importantly are the over $70K of receipts for not only the motor and transmission, but also restoraEon of the body and new interior.
Unusual to old G-Wagens, there is no vibraEon or excessive noise and the truck has recently had new front and rear drivesha[s installed as well. It comfortably made a nearly 200 mile trip from the central mountains to Denver, hicng the high mountain passes at over 60 mph. It has been fiTed with a Donaldson air filter with dual filter cartridge setup. It received a new folding so[ top in 2008 from cabrio.de, the G-Wagen cabriolet parts supplier.
AddiEonal recent work includes: Front wheel bearings redone;
Diff locks rebuilt and tested; Brakes redone;
SLK front seats for added comfort; Excellent exterior paintwork.
Compared to other G-Wagens of this era, this truck is super fast, very powerful, yet excellent on fuel consumpEon. It is the perfect balance just in Eme for summer.
It comes with a hardtop if you intend to use in the winter.
Also includes factory Alloys with almost new Nokian rubber and a trailer/towing kit. call Weisco Motorcars for more info or to set up an appointment time to see this in person.
