Its with great sadness that I put up my pride and joy for sale.

Many of you guys know the story of restoration, changes and upgrades.
For those that dont, here is a brief spec
1984 230 GE SWB
OM606 turbo (fully mechanical)
6sp C220CDi gearbox and single mass valeo clutch kit.
Complete restoration on body shell, blasted, primed with marine etch primer, resealed, sound deadened and sprayed completely.
Every chassis component powder coated, new coil springs and shocks, suspension bushes, hydraulic pipes, bearings, prop-shafts, disk brakes.... list goes on.
Interior is fully redone, 190e Recaro front seats, all seats recovered in leather, roof lining redone, carpets, everything. All interior hard parts hydro dipped in bronze carbon fiber.
W164 rims and new BF AT tyres
Sony Bluetooth headset with Rockford fosgate oem replacement speakers.

I have done 10 000km since the project was completed, done trips through baviaans, lesotho, tiffindell, never let me down.

Here is a link to my build thread :

A really great example of the W460 with all the desirable upgrades.
R340 000.

Stu, knowing by personal experience, what you have done, I hope you recover some of your costs, and I know that they are much more than your asking price.

This is a brand new G at one third of its price.

Thanks Andrew - I really did not want it to come to this, but such is life! I was supposed to still be driving my G well into retirement.
lets rather not think about the costs....

very sad day when it leaves.
