I got lucky and found my dream g-wagen. om617 with a 5-speed (ok, 12 speed if you count all forward and all reverse configurations). What I need now is a shifter knob with this pattern:

1 3 5

R 2 4

Anyone have any leads?

Just looked at a 240D (4 speed, no mystery about that however). Owner said body was straight and in good shape. Saw the car, could see the rocker rust from 30 feet away. Lifted the plywood lying in front of the driver's seat. Could see the ground. Showed him. Told him that was rust. Went back to my car. See!! No rust. Went back to his car. See! Rust! Arggghh. What do people think, you will magically fall in love with their precious rusty MB and ignore the rust??

Some would say that a speed doesn't belong in the same context as a 240D. Isn't it just a 1:1 reversing gear on first anyway? Same ratio innit?

Here we go again:

Let me know if anyone wants me to check this thing out. Way beyond my skill level and affordability at the moment even if it's real.

Difficult to tell from the pictures, but I don't believe the car itself is a Euro.

(Has A/C and power antenna, alloy wheels).

If it is a Euro, it is pretty well loaded. Odd that a fully loaded Euro car doesn't have ABS though.

If it really is a 5 speed, it's probably a conversion.
