Jim the Truck - a mercedes 1823

nick disjunkt

Hi all,

It’s been a long time since I posted anything here, as my travels have been less and less frequent.

Jim has spent the last year being dormant and it’s taken me that time to sum up the courage to put him up for sale.


Having converted the truck myself, and having never been in the market for a ready-to-go vehicle, I have no idea what it is worth. I have listed it for £30k, but I would be grateful for your opinions on whether you think I am asking too much or too little.

It is a specialist vehicle in a niche market and I realise that it may take some time to sell, even if I price it correctly.

Here's a photo of Jim under a glacier in Switzerland last year, to keep this post interesting.

Many thanks for any advice.

Sad news, any plans for another build...something smaller?
I've come to terms with it, as it's taken a long time to make the decision and actually list it for sale, but I can't be sure that I wont shed a tear when the truck sells.

No plans for another build, but I would definitely get more use out of a small van for weekends and short trips than a truck at the moment.

I have a young son, and it's going to be a long time before I can go on a trip of more than a few weeks.

If not before, I'm certain I'll build other truck to enjoy during my retirement, but I'm a looong way off that.
