Yep.

This beast was eventually cut up. Front end turned into a car-be-que.


Wow, Martin cut-up the old pick-up did he?
Personally I was never a fan.

This topic reminds me, a couple of times when driving I've seen a home made pick-up running around in Wickford, it's quite heavily customised so not easy to identify what it is, saw it again last Friday and managed to remember the reg long enough to write it down when I'd stopped and it comes up as a 1971 BMW 2500, any other local shiters spotted it?

Something that I’ve always wanted a go at. Did make an allegro convertible before driving it to the scrappers but it was rotten.

That Rover at the top is actually beautifully executed. It was featured in PC mag recently. He has a penchant for Rover 75s and has also done a push-me-pull-you version (yes I know) and a very clever and rather lovely two door coupe. Trouble with the pick up though, like all the others above, is it still manages to look rubbish.


Yeah I enjoyed reading about this lot too. The coupe is a truly wonderful thing, the other two fall more under 'interesting oddities'.

Different reg but surely must be the same one that fordperv posted up there; seen here in 2016.

Minor pickups were a factory thing but not with a stepside.

Funny how life pans out. I'd been thinking about starting this thread for a while but only got round to it a couple of days ago. Then we pass this on the M3 this morning.

So I would have started it today anyway. It takes a lot of work to make a Clio worse but I think they managed.

I'm assuming that's the one in the Chesterfield area, there surely can't be more than one person who thought that was a good idea.

There is a lot more to this than meets the eye.....Those are traveller doors (or at least, 2 door saloon) but there is no strength at all in a de-forested Traveller.  A modified commercial Minor cab which incorporated such longer doors and still had B pillars would not give nearly enough room for that length of bed.   Simplest route, I guess, would be to just stretch the Minor LCV chassis but its still a lot of work to produce a non-original Minor pickup!

I’ve got an article somewhere with a Triumph Stag pick up, presumably done when they were completely worthless.

Bit of a panel gap at that front door.
Maybe the door's not closed properly.
Maybe it won't close properly. For some strange unknown reason.
