looks like a nice truck. I've always liked the Europa imported G wagons- I would go for a newer (but pre MBUSA) model to get some of the luxury features without the screwy electronics. I like the 500GE a lot.

20 mins away. Happy to go look it over if anyone here is interested. At one point I realy wanted a 5 door one of these but went the defender route.

It says lwb 4 door in the listing, but shows pictures of a 2 door swb. Interesting.

I also offer my services to look, as I'm closer and owned an 86 2 door.

G serie

I owned one of these before my current D. It went everywhere the D went and then some.

It's a rare ambulance door (2 rear doors) - hence the 4 doors he lists. It's officially a SWB 2 door. When he says the 2door ambulance rear door is rare, he's right. This is the first legally imported one I've seen.

Downsides: the rust will likely take $8-10k to fix. Ask me how I know.

The diesels are EXTREMELY slow. Here at altitude,, they're practically a road hazard. Even after a TD conversion (very straightforward) they remain pretty slow.

That said, I miss mine.
