GE300

My G wagen will be for sale shortly, it's black, swb, has leather, is petrol, the 3 litre single cam m103 engine and has a manual gear box. It's done over 156,000 miles but had the cylinder head rebuilt about 5 years ago. Far from immaculate but it is in very good order for its age. A w463 it has permanent 4 wheel drive. It as a stainless exhaust system that is noisier than standard but still difficult to hear with the windows closed. Sunroof tilts but won't retract. I have owned it 17 years and it's my 3rd G wagen. It's not getting much use so it's time to pass it on. My Grandson is valeting it within an inch of its life when he's done I'll put photos up. He tells me it's worth over £15k  because the swb is now rare & more desirable, we will see

Hi Paul

If you are logged in, at the top of your original advert you should have an Edit option, if you click on that you can then scroll down and upload a photo in the usual way. Another option is click Reply on a comment and that will also give you the option to enter an image from the icon bars, like this.

I'll check that out, thanks, you were after a Wolf, I think there is one back on ebay, in Sheffield, it looks decent too

Thank you!

Hi prwales - always sad to see an owner giving up but maybe this (just listed) will give you confidence that £15k is not outlandish for your similar vintage but much more desirable SWB version.

The pimped look does nothing for me, but each to his own

Re: GE300

Hi Paul, sorry to hear you are selling your G, post some photos after the valet so we can see what it looks like. The SWB 463 models are very collectable now. I sold my LWB after 18 years of ownership so you do tend to get attached to them.

Re: GE300

Agree but it's comfort I want now rather than adventures, from what I see he is doing a very good job but the photos on a local hillside will sell it. How are you keeping Doug?

Re: GE300

Keeping well Paul, thanks for asking. Being located in the middle of the Highlands meant we were spared the worst of lockdown and life pretty much carried on as normal, that might well change for the worst now all the tourists have arrived !

I am mostly driving modern German stuff these days but I do fancy buying a SWB Wolf soft top and turning it into a chunky little convertible to have some fun with (although I have been saying that for the last 5 years).

Good luck with your sale.

Doug.

Comes with a catalytic converter, the car is a K plate but was built in October 1991 so it's a deletable item. Originally had a bull bar, took it off but there are lots of bolt holes where it once fitted, so car comes with a brand new spare  front bumper.
