This 1991 Mercedes Benz G-Wagen 300GE with 40,217 km was inspected for a client in November 2019.
Auction grade 4 B.
On inspection we found the paint and interior condition to be very good for age, with a few minor faults as pictured. Non smoker. Engine and transmission were fine.
However, the main issue was the rust which was unfortunately very extensive throughout the body and engine bay. Painted over underneath and flaking off. It was on this basis that we excluded the vehicle from further consideration – simply too rusty.
