Welcome to the sale of what must be the most unique and bespoke G Wagon around.

This is my own personal car that I have cherished and enjoyed.

The car started life as an excellent condition and low mileage 1989 G230 Manual W460 Model.

Around 2006 the car was purchased by Nigel Heywood of Buryas Bridge Garage, see Buryas Bridge Garage.

Nigel is world famous for his work and in particular for specialist high end conversions and upgrades.

On this G Wagen Nigel stripped the car to bare bones and completed a full conversion.

A 5.6 V8 engine and gearbox from a W126 SEL were custom fitted to the car. This engine produces 300 BHP.

This transplant of course involved an enormous amount of work which has been done to factory original standards.
For example custom engine mounts were engineered, a custom wiring loom was made, custom prop shaft adaptors were manufactured. Even details down to relay brackets, grommets and so on are genuine Mercedes items where possible.
This work was all done to a superb standard and nothing like some of the home conversions I have seen. This conversion really is a show piece for top notch engineering.

The exhaust system is totally custom from the manifolds down. It IS loud but fits this car perfectly! See the videos. It’s a four branch manifold and then the pipes run down and through the chassis tubes and out of each side! Fantastic craftsmanship!

The diffs are the originals and not electronic like the later cars so totally reliable.

The 18” AMG alloys were added at a cost of over £3000.
The car has recently had new Pirelli Scorpion M+S Tyres Fitted. Fantastic tyres that didn’t lose grip at all in all the winter snow we had.

The Interior is totally custom.
At the front there are a pair of Recaro CSE Seats – the best of the best seats around and now sell for over £2000 a pair, that’s when a set rarely becomes available.
These are heated, orthopaedic; adjustable in so many ways I’m still to work all the buttons.
The rear seats are also Recaros but not heated; normal Recaro seats that recline.

The inside was totally re trimmed including all new carpet, leather dash, leather headlining, leather centre console and leather door cards.
Again the standard of this work is just fantastic.

Other additions like Xenon Headlamps, Tasteful LED Interior Lights, Rear Interior Storage Bins with Power Points for the Kids Toys, Later Style Indicator Mirrors, Later Style Lights, Chequer Plating on the Rear Bumpers, Tinted Windows and so much more, complete the effect so that this car looks very similar to a Modern G55 AMG.

The car was also fitted with a custom sound system. There are speakers in the doors, tweeters on the dash, amplifiers under the rear seats etc. All is integrated nicely into the trim work so it looks like its always been there. The sound quality is just out of this world.

Since I have owned the car, I have just brought it up to standard so the car looks as close to new as possible.

The first thing I did was to take the car to my body shop as the car had a few minor blisters. Most would have left these as they were, after all this is a 4x4!
Not me… The body shop completely stripped the car and repainted the whole thing from top to bottom. The result was a totally fresh car that you see in the pictures.

I also had the wheel centres colour coded to match the body which I think looks very up to date.

I then set about ensuring that the car was totally perfect mechanically.

I waxoyled the car thoroughly for rust prevention, in all of the box sections, underside, wheel arches etc. The car is extremely clean with no rust or patches underneath.

Next on the list was a good thorough service so all the fluids and oils were changed including transmission and axle oils, new brake fluid, new coolant etc.
All spark plugs were changed as were all the filters.
I fitted a new Bosch S5 Battery and Alternator, new bonnet insulation mat, new fuel pump relay, new rear coil springs, new hose to fuel tank, new speedo cable, all new fan belts (all Mercedes parts).
Once I had finished the car has been perfect.

The previous owner had lost the spare keys so I changed the locks with a new set from Mercedes. The new key codes have been recorded at Mercedes so if anyone wants spares in the future, they will get correct ones. Although I believe I now have four original Mercedes keys for this car and all the locks use one key including the ignition, doors and fuel cap. This was not cheap but had to be done for safety.

Also the car is fitted with a Toad Alarm & Immobiliser with remote central locking.

I fitted the car with a Becker Indianapolis Stereo which has Satellite Navigation and Ipod/Iphone connectivity. This is included.

The car is pictured with an AMG steering wheel, however this won’t stay with the car, I’ll put the original back on. The AMG one is far too small for this car, it was just me experimenting.

The car is ready to go for someone to enjoy. I have never taken it off road and it has been kept clean and covered at all times.

The mileage is around 46K, although of course I have no real way of verifying this, and in any case it has no real relevance as the car has been totally restored and modified.

The price is fixed, take it or leave it!

It’s a one off car and those who know G Wagens will appreciate what this car is.
