Damn, the prices are skyrocketing again. Must hold on to mine.
I see they advertise Airbags for driver and passenger, nit sure they were available then.
Also No Power windows as advertised.

If its a dealer then one must always take the price with a pinch of salt.
They tend to think they can ask any price.
A dealer in cpt wanted similar money for a 290GDT and it didn't after a year.
Looks like a clean car though. Anybody know the car. Not many 463's around.
Ad says petrol so must be 300GE then?

Petrol as far as I know were auto.
In the pictures I can just make out 300 on the back of the G.

Well spotted Cornel,
Mine only goes up to 6000.
So it probably is a 300GE, same as the silver one that is an Auto.

Had to look it up but it seems it is only 125kW @5500rpm and 235Nm @ 4500 rpm.
It seem to have been detuned compared to the limousines of the same era which IIRC had 136kW.

One interesting fact is that this 3l motor is 41kg lighter than the older 280 motor due to materials used.

Ad is very suspect. Typical copy and paste by secondhand car dealer.

Driver Air Bag = def no
Passenger Air Bag = def no
Anti-Lock Brakes = not sure
Air Conditioning = not sure
Power Steering = yes
Cruise Control = not sure
Tilt Wheel = sparewheel? no
Child Seat Anchor = whatever
Power Windows = no
Rear Window Defroster = yes
AM/FM Radio = whatever
Compact Disc Player = whatever
Power Door Locks = central locking yes, but prob not remote operated.

Alan. Can you see on the dash/photos if this model has aircon?

The 1991 300GE auto also advertised does not have aircon, according to the owner.

It does seem to have aircon, but I would look at the pics carefully. It also seems the center console was tried to be pried open with a screwdriver. Also the dash above the instruments was nicked..... All cosmetic but what else was abused? Best is to go and have a look at the vehicle personally and take it for a drive.
