    $2k for a freshly maintained and painted Raider? I'll take it! Throw in the badges for free!

    Those are some pretty big cylinders at 1.38 litres each.
    I'm no G-wagen "Samurai," as it were, but something else seems fishy here.

    Troll? Scammer? Trammer?

    Well, Daimler-Benz owned Chrysler, who worked heavily with Mitsubishi – this isn't much worse than Ford referring to the Jag E-Type as one of their heritage vehicles.
    I'd just like to hear his explanation for the VIN starting with J.

      Now wait a moment Maymar, this is not Hemmings Six Degrees of Separation….

    Whats curious about this ad is not the vehicle itself, but the lack of capital letters and exclamation points.
    Josh is really trying to pull one over, since we all know to trust people implicitly on the web by their improper use of English.

    Check the ad… my friend emailed him and called him on it. The seller sounds more clueless than scammy, so he changed the ad.

      Weird…a legit seller that's the victim of a rather well executed re-badge?
      Curiouser and curiouser.
      The 80s was a strange time for Mitsubishi. Wouldn't surprise me if Mitsu parts made their way to MB vehicles or there was some other weird parts interchangeability.

      He still says it has the original Mercedes motor. I would love to see what specs. he would provide.

        Specs? Didn't you see the three pointed star on the grille? What more do you need?

        That's the "honesty surcharge".

    This is crazy to see this. I saw one of these in boston, ma last week and just wondering why anyone would put that badge on there. There must be a story behind this. Someone here should sniff it out.
