Ever since I test drove a G wagon 4 door diesel a couple days ago, i've been on the hunt for a nice one. Tried the usual sites like ebay, craigslist, and clubgwagen. Anybody know of one for sale? Must be a 4 door diesel....as my daily driver!

Many thanks!

how about importing one from germany? Vehicles are LHD there...

Or have you tried these guys....

No, German G Wagens for sale online via mobile.de and similar are often rusted badly and/or poorly serviced and often not owned by mostly enthusiasts like here in the USA. If you can find one owned by a German enthusiast that is a great car to be had. Generally, the G Wagens here are much nicer than those found in Germany. Not to mention you have shipping costs, flying over to look at it...etc etc. It's risky and not worth it IMO.

Eurotruck does not really sell G Wagens, but if they know of one for sale they will inform you, but it's mostly parts.

I drove the one that was for sale on craigslist up in Vancouver WA. It was a bit too rusty for me. It was a 300GD.

Here are two from Craigslist today

1983 G-wagen, San Antonio TX $14,500
http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/cto/1735474270.html

1986 G-Wagen diesel, Charlottesville VA $15,500
http://charlottesville.craigslist.org/cto/1713657599.html
Thanks Chip(?).

Sorry for the ignorance but is there a way to search the USA on CL for something? I don't see a general search function under CL.org.

The '86 is on PointedThree as well; http://www.pointedthree.com/disc/forums/showthread.php?tid=16415&posts=1&start=1

There are several options available to search all of Craigslist. The simplest is to use Google:
For example, in the Google search bar, type "g-wagen site:craigslist.org"

Another site I use to look for vehicles is http://www.jaxed.com/cgi-bin/mash.cgi
There is no search specifically for Gelandewagens, so I specify 1980s and
1990s Mercedes products, with "wagen" as the filter. This will find listings that
include either Gelandewagen or G-Wagen in the text. The Jaxed site also searches eBay.
