My "New" 1995 G320

I picked up this very low mileage G320 from Germany earlier this year. It was imported with the help of a German acquaintance. Shipped to Long Beach California and federalized in Sacramento. It was 7 months from when I purchased it and finally received it in Portland Oregon. The last owner had turned 80 years old and stopped driving. He bought the car in 1996 and owned it for almost 20 years. The rear seats are the split leather bench that looks like they have never been used.

I pulled off the Atik rims that had a lot of flakey paint and put on a set of ET43 18" Ashtaroths with 33" tires. The 215 HP of this little in-line 6 m104 motor pushes the big tires around no problem. I have been working on some small deferred maintenance issues, but the car is in amazing condition.

I drove to Bend yesterday to pick up the rebuilt transaxle for my 78 Bus and visited with Kent and Kelly there as well. They bought my old beauty 460 300GD in 2008. I got a few nice pics at a stop on the Deschutes River just south of the Warm Springs reservation.

Very nice! Now you need to bring it east and ride with the boys here.
BTW do the 33" tires scrub at all?

Would be fun to drive it around the country bumming beers from all the G community


This is the same tire on my old G500

Great looking truck. How are you enjoying the SWB? Drives and handles like a little sports car doesn't it.

Glad it worked out for you without any complications.
Enjoy it my friend.

Re: My "New" 1995 G320

Ya, the handling is totally different than the LWB.
I really like it and use it as my DD.

The importation and RI process is frustrating and prolonged. It was hard to predict all the costs when the initial purchase decision was made, but the end result was still a good value overall. It is not hard to see how one could get potentially burned at various stages of the process though.
