Unimog's For Sale / Re: Very low mileage U1300L
« on: September 25, 2019, 07:08:43 am »
Good question......
AV were advertising an OM366 engine which I bought & arranged for install with AV.  My new Mog then came up for sale, and I decided to put the new engine into this one instead.
I had already delivered my Mog down to AV (200 miles away) so it was much more straightforward just to leave it with them, rather than move it to ACPrice.
Iíve no issues with ACPrice whatsoever, they did a great job on it.
It was just easier for me logistically to leave it with AV.

Received the new registration plates today for my new Mog.
Hope you all approve.....



I phoned the DVLA to enquire about them last year & they told me theyíd never been issued.  Asked for them to be released & they turned up in the DVLA auction last month.
Apologies to anyone on here who also bid on them.

PS.....

AA & RAC donít cover vehicles over 3.5 tonnes.
I got cover with my insurance through Adrian Flux.

However, these guys do a very affordable policy for classic trucks...

Thatís the one Paul.
Itís exactly what I had intended for mine & thought the opportunity to save time and money was too good to miss.
Itís booked in with AV for the OM366 engine which I had earmarked for my current Mog.
Plan to take a few bits off mine (front winch, CB radio) to swap over before selling ideally.
Will post it on Facebook as Moose recommends. Last time I used FB I sold the driverís seat within 2 days !!

Unimog's For Sale / Very low mileage U1300L
« on: May 09, 2019, 10:28:39 pm »
I bought this vehicle in October 2018, with great plans for conversion.
Then someone posts an ad on eBay selling one that has already been converted.
So iíve bought it and really donít need 2 Unimogs.
The plan is to sell it through AV next month, but I figured thereís no harm in posting it on here first in case anyone is looking for one.

Itís a very low mileage U1300L (21,000kms) On which I spent £9k with ACPrice in October getting any necessary work done.
.
Not sure yet what is worth as Iím awaiting a valuation from AV.
Offers welcome.....

Happy as I was working on the conversion on my U1300L, you have to recognise it when fate intervenes.....
I dropped my Mog off at AV for some major mods a few weeks ago, but it turned out there was a mixup with the booking, leading to a 3 week delay.
Then what happens..... a U1300L appears on eBay already converted.
After a discussion with AV, one with my wife, one with my bank manager and a 600 mile round trip to see it, iíve bought another one....
This means that mine will be going up for sale shortly, probably via Atkinson Vos.

Photos of the new one to follow next month, but in the mean time, if anyone is looking for a U1300L in truly excellent condition, please get in touch.

Hi Paul,
Got it from Kudauk :  https://www.kudauk.ltd.uk/product/black-diesel-airhorn

£52 incl VAT & shipping

The horn alternates between the two every second or so, but you can rewire it to blow both together I believe.

Thanks Moose.  Iíve been giving that some thought since you posted it.  Does the weight concern arise from inadequate engine power to pull up up hills, from overloading the chassis and/or suspension, going over the 7.5 tonne limit or something else?

Because I was already 90% through it, Iíve now almost completed the bull bar a was fabrication for it.  However, because of your concern over weight Iíve made it very simple to install or remove...





Iíve also completed the air horn installation by plumbing it into the palm coupling up front and swapping out the NRV & filter with a PRV set at 10 bar....

Picked up a rear winch bracket today from the same local fabrication company.
Now just need to check it fits, paint it and buy another winch (£££ ouch).

Photos of air-horn install to follow this weekend (hopefully).....
