VIN & MY looks legit from the infos given on ebay. What is the fuzz about importing to USA?
I posted it here 2 weeks ago: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=11075
For those who worry about VIN swapping ... I added the "body" part number ... to ensure
the VIN is really legit ....

BTW ... no relation to the seller.

Now the pictures are gone, but what I saw was a complete 2011-2013 G300 Proffesional in a nice factory trim. V6 CDI engine and everything. It had nothing to do with a GD240.

I'd say it had all the marks of a scam.

Other than the VIN, what do we need to authenticate it? Need to know where this is stamped.


VIN number is here on the chassis .

This was the GD240 in the Miami eBay seller's ad that I messaged, not a W461 Professional.

I saw an orange 240gd for sale in Canada.

Seems to be we all saw different G's. The reason I did not understand why we can not importe a 87 240gd.

Yes this was for the G300CDI PUR in the now deleted eBay auction. It was white with a front runner roof rack.

I clearly remember that it had US plates and saw a GMC Yukon/Denali on the background. It is possible the chassis was imported without the engine and the engine was shipped separately, put back together in the US and registered/plated as a (25 year+ import) somehow.

Though I cannot confirm it to be true there might be an explanation for this vehicle being stateside without doing all of the above.

I remember in 2016 that Tschiewagon brought their G300 CDI PUR into the states through FL customs and did a raid on the east coast to NY. There might have been some issues bringing the vehicle back? or the vehicle was somehow registered here for marketing/business purposes so they could use it stateside. It has a different roof rack and wheels but it is strikingly similar. It definitely grabs peoples attention though :lol:

This is the page I get with that link:
defaultsite.jpg


You can see, the URL has changed to search for any and all "1987+Mercedes+Benz+G+Class" because the original ad is no longer posted, so ebay doesn't give you a 404 page, rather it tries to find other items similar you maybe interested in

That's why people are getting confused, and thinking that top listing (the GD240) is the one OP is talking about, when indeed, it isn't.

No that is the correct link but the actual add to what the OP was referring to is longer there and the link is just pulling up similar items in ebay which is why you see the green or orange 240GD's.
