2018 G350d "463 Edition" Body cab, chassis and interior only

Post#1 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 9:32 am

Saw this pop up and saw nothing of it until I saw no US/DOT sidemarkers and the interesting "463 Edition" bits in the interior. Seller has a few others available (G 500, G63, G350d) Good project for someone who has a wrecked newer G that wants to start fresh again!

No affiliation to seller

Too bad this wouldn't fit on a W460 frame. Plenty of those around.

Is there a cut off year within W463 frames? (PreMbusa for example)

Would love to hear the story here, there is another one in the background through the rear side window!

What a fun project someone will hopefully have.

No engine. No trans. No chassis.

Would be fantastic for a rollover repair.

In the ad they say they have 4 of these. Also mentioned is that they have the frame engine, drive train, and the rest of the original vehicle.

They have basically taken it apart to sell separately as a kit vehicle in case any one around here wants a brand new G350 463 edition V6 turbo diesel Gwagen. Very cool idea, I thought many times about doing this but don't have the money, time, or resources to ever make it happen.

edit: I read the eBay ad again and it doesn't specifically say it is a G350. It is unclear which driveline came with this particular chassis, but the lack of US spec marker lights points to a Euro model.

I fail to grasp the legality of it.
Engine cannot be imported under 21 years without major epa convincing
I don’t even know enough about the rest to say anything but basically I have no idea how they re doing it.

The rules for incomplete vehicles are different. It is not technically a vehicle, just auto parts.

The original ad showed pictures of the rear and it showed the model as a “G 350d” and the seller posted the VIN as well but those were taken down.
