Hidden inside the engine bay of this gold-painted example is a replacement turbodiesel 3.0-liter inline-five mill that’s mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Although it’s already 38 years old, this G-Class probably doesn’t mind going on a few more summer adventures and road trips in remote places. After all, the dual-range transfer case and two locking differentials will be ready to come to aid at a moment's notice.
Final exterior highlights include the black-painted brush guard and additional lights, white 15-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, or the custom exhaust setup. With all that out of the way, let’s focus on the classic interior, which is home to a lovely dual-tone brown and tan upholstery with tweed fabric looks, a couple of Recaro heated seats up front, and a Pioneer head unit messing up the vintage atmosphere just a little.
Interestingly, this SUV hasn’t seen a lot of action during its time, as the odometer is showing a 62,530 readout. But remember, this is a German-market unit, so those are kilometers, not miles. Converted to Imperial units, there are less than 39k miles to account for. Of course, that means this G won’t sell too cheap. With five more days on the auction clock, the current highest bid has already reached $23,250 and we clearly expect to see it jump some more.
