2. Model History

Mercedes Benz Started The Development Of The G Wagon Model In The Middle Of 1972, The Production Was Split Between The Mercedes Benz Engineers Based In Stuttgart Concentrating On The Design & Testing, With The Team Based In Graz Austria Developing The Production Plans. The First Wooden Model Was Presented To The Mercedes Benz Factory In German For The Initial Approval, With The First Fully Functional Prototype Beginning With Various Testing Including German Coalfields, The Sahara Desert And Tests In The Sub Zero Environment Of The Arctic Circle In 1974. After These Vigorous Tests Construction Commenced In Graz, Where This All New Cross Country Vehicle Would Be Assembled Nearly Entirely By Hand In 1975, With Production Of The "G Model" Beginning In 1979. One Of The First Cars To Be Offered Was Introduced Into The Vatican City In 1980, With This Keeper Being No Other Than Pope John Paul II, Who Had A Fully Converted Model Of The Pope-Mobile Nicknamed The “Papa G”, With A Fully Fitted Thermoplastic Top, Perfect For Those Trips When You Needed To Be Seen By Eager Holy Followers. Bar The Mercedes Benz Unimog Truck, The G Wagon Is The Company's Longest Serving Model, Offering Clients From Around The Globe A Fully Usable Truck With Military Driving Capabilities, Stunning Reliability And A Squared Design That Has Become Famous On Every Corner Of The Planet. If We Fast Forward To 2017 The Car Really Has Not Been Changed On The Total Styling, With Only Minor Face Lifts Happening Over The Last Forty Two Years, With Many New Clients Wanting To Buy Into Their Very Own Part Of Motoring History, Very Similar To The Defender From Land Rover. The G Wagon Is The Ultimate Motoring Must Have, As The Total Visual Stance Is Totally Unique To Other Vehicles On The Road, However Many New Buyers Do Not Really Want To Spend Nearly Two Hundred Thousand Pounds On Their Own Motoring Statement, So We Firmly Believe That This Could Well Be The Better Proposition, To That Person Who Desires Something Just That Little Bit More Odd Ball And Would Be Perfectly Suited Outside A London Town House Or Travelling Across The Open Countryside Of Europe.

This Example Is Stunning On The Total Presentation Of The Exterior Body Work, Having No Rust Issues Or Corrosion, Which Can Be Quite Common To Find. Further More The Paint Finish, The Alloy Wheels And The Interior Are All Presented In Fabulous Condition, Showing That Over The Last Twenty Six Years Since This Car Was New, The Past Keepers Have Cherished The Car To An Excellent Standard. Once Sold The Vehicle Will Be Treated To A Full And Comprehensive Service Completed By Our Fully Trained & Knowledgeable Workshops, Which Will Also Include A Brand New MOT To Be Completed By An Independent Test Centre.

A True Motoring Giant.....
