The dealership will offer up to 50% finance on this truck which is wht we negotiated. Also approx $30k of the sale price goes to the dealership!

Huge risk if you are caught, yes for the guy that buys it.
If I am wrong I apologize, but I would think a vehicle of that price, that was built to new specs would include the build photos as a selling tool. Maybe they have them in a diamond covered album at Beverly Hills RR/Bentley. I'm just sayin.
Todd on this particular truck we didn't take any photo's was we almost ran out of time to get the truck built before we needed to ship it to the USA to do the 'Bullrun'. So it was all hands to the pumps in the workshop so to speak. But I do have build photo's of the all the ROW spec 300tdi's we have done this year for clients and I can let you have the clients details if you want to check up on us. Please email me for build photo's on the 300tdi trucks, the next tdci we do will have a galv chassis and yes there will be build photo's.

Barry,
Julian states he has around $70k in the truck. Selling it for $150k so that is $80k difference or profit. How he splits it with the dealer does not change the fact that it is $80k profit. It may be difficult to do what he has done etc, etc. But I think $80k profit is absurd. If he gets it fine but yes I do think it is ridiculous, that is my opinion and I am entitled to it just as you are yours. and I know what opinions are like so you don't have to bring that up.

As for the way the D110 was imported, I would say that if anyone on this board saw that D110 on EBay with the story that it had been rebuilt from a 1984 we would all be skeptical. Just look at the guy selling the dormobile, everyone thinks it is fishy even though he gives a plausible explanation and may well be a "stand up guy" We have all seen "rebuilt" 110's over the years so we are all skeptical. Julian is a member here and has brought in dozens of 110's but that doesn't mean I can't be skeptical and ask about build pics. Frankly I don't care if he did buy a new 2010 110 and swap the vin#. But I would like to see build pics because I would like to know how he put the new style dash in the old style car. I have yet to see anyone do a swap with the new style dash, so would be interesting.

I know and I agree with you about the build. I have seen the truck in person and it looks perfect. I am more inclined to say the profit margin is none of our business and I fault Julian for even saying what he has in it.

FYI we fitted the 2010 bulkhead complete with wireing as its amost impossible to put the 2010 bulkhead parts onto the TD5 or earlier bulkhead and get the wireing to match. I also explained why there are no construction pics. When we do the next one there will be.

Question - I sell rebuilt ROW spec 300tdi 110's on galv chassis for $70-85K, the same vehicle from some US restorers is over $200k, and you have a problem with my pricing?

Not to Hijack, but can you still get the TD5 LHD parts new in the UK?

Some are readily available and some have been sold out world wide. Safari Rover was able to get a dozen or so of the "not available" center dash tray parts last month. Rover did a limited release of a few and he got a dozen-directly from the parts hoard @ Solihull.

I'd be pissed if I owned a 2006 lhd td5 and was told in 2010 that a dash part was no longer available.
Thats not how you keep people coming back for your product.

This truck was really tempting, but I really wanted the seating for 7.

NOW you're talking ! Thats my idea of a cool truck.

I just imported Nene's first sale to the US this week. Very nice restoration. Owner flew into Baltimore from Missouri and drove it 17.5 hrs home.
