On May 27, 1988, the G Wagon was sent to Munich where it was sold to original owner i purchased it from 3 years ago. Upon Sergeis arrival to his lake home in summer 1991 i fell in love with it. This G wagon was an extravagant machine on the roads of the lake home every summer until late 2000s.

Original owners son can confirm history of this G wagon from early days. Every year until 1999 it was transported back to Germany for services in Mercedes certified dealership. This 1988 G Wagon S/N WDB46021817060340 is extremely RARE Hard to find mint condition 98% original factory paint W460 factory convertible.

The matching numbers low mileage, as well as its solid state, which was no doubt a benefit of having spent 25 years in heated lake house garage and being used only few months every summer.
 

This all original has only 83995 km (  52497 miles ) and I have supporting original documentation. Car shows ONLY 83995 km on the original 5 digit odometer.

All services where conducted beginning of 2016, as well as full detailing. One deviation from the original is tire cover – perfectly painted to match color but not new G class style that would ruin this Convertible original look, it is a marvelous touch. Additionally AM/FM cassette player is in perfect working condition but not factory original, the Becker radio from 1988 would be era correct. Original fire extinguisher is located in front of the front passenger seat and i have not been able to purchase age correct second one that should be located under the seat.The finish of the GE230 is of the highest level and the car retains a very correct appearance since 1988, please look at all pictures to see 2 areas that show start of corrosion, very common for these G wagons . The original engine, differential, and transmission remains with matching numbers to prove, also in wheel-well – front right frame.

7060340 is a sensation to drive. Its road manners are what one would expect from any beautifully engineered motorcar. The true excitement, however, is when this ultimate 4X4 top comes off you can experience a true pleasure.With abundant power and thrill to drive this G Cabrio is simply addictive.

In recent years, these ultra-rare, Mint condition all original G Cabrios have come to be recognized by collectors and enthusiasts for what they have always been – truly the best of the best. They are a tiny group of factory-built, constructed with the intention of increasing the public visibility of one of the greatest SUV convertibles constructed.

G Wagon Cabrios are routinely acknowledged as favorites in a collection of any size. They are prized for their magnificent engineering and build quality, purity of design and outstanding driving experience, with just a few in this condition which have survived to this day. They are very seldom offered for sale. This is a gem – hard to find MINT all original not abused, well maintained G Wagon Convertible.
