1995 Mercedes 500GE Designo

Spotted for sale is a 1995 Mercedes 500GE Designo for $59,999 USD. The seller imported this car from Japan in the fall of 2018. As you may already know, the 500GE is a rather unique Mercedes model in the history of the W463 G Wagons. This is one of the first production V8 Gelandewagens ever produced, with fewer than 500 ever built in 1993/1994. These were never originally for sale in North America. It features a 5.0 M117 V8 (MB realized that the M119 didn’t fit in the W463 engine bay), 4 speed automatic transmission with high / low transfer case and locking center and rear differentials. The exterior is metallic purple with very few blemishes. The wheels are rare late ’90s AMG 18″ wheels with brand new Continental tires. The interior is in great shape (no rips or tears in the leather) and features power front heated seats, cold air-conditioning, and hot heat. All panels are the original Designo two tone black and gray leather.

AMG 3.6L Motor

  Spotted in Seattle, Washington is an AMG 3.6L Motor for $2,100 USD.  The seller states this is a very rare and hard to find motor.  It is capable of 280hp and came from Japan with 77k miles on it.   This motor would be a good candidate for a w1246 E320 Coupe swap.   It comes with a very rare 3.6 intake tube  and for W124 with HFM EFI (93-95), comes with an already-chipped ECU for non-ASR cars by Speedtuning to take advantage of the higher HP 3.6L. What do you think of this motor?

Mercedes W126 AMG Glove Box TV, AMG Steering Wheel, and AMG Gauge Cluster

Spotted in Illinois is a Mercedes W126 AMG Glove Box TV, AMG Steering Wheel, and AMG Gauge Cluster for $2,899 USD. These parts have been removed from a Japanese w126 SEC wide body AMG. The pre-merger AMG steering wheel has some scratches but both horn buttons work properly but includes the wheel hub as well. The instrument cluster has AMG white faces which are metal and not cheap paper imitations. The cluster shows in Kilometers not Miles.  By far the best item in this auction is the AMG Glove Box Panasonic TV with all accessories and the remote control.  Nothing screams 1990s AMG than this TV.  I doubt the reception was ever that good but it spoke volumes of the decade of excess.  The TV console has a small storage department with cup holders when the door is open. The seller does not know if the TV is functional. What do you think of these AMG items?

1993 Mercedes 600SL AMG
  Spotted in Germany is a 1993 Mercedes 600SL AMG for €51.739 Euros.  This is a true AMG car built at the Affalterbach Factory  on 11.23.1993.   It was then sent to Japan and registered on 1.26.1994.   The Certificate from AMG show that this is an authentic AMG built car.   I love the AMG 3 piece staggered wheels and AMG body kit on these cars. What do you think of this car?
