Practical conversion. Probably a good tow-car. I like this one.
The neighbours in your street would 'love it' too. Imagine parking this in your street in 2019, half full of logs and cut up pallets.

Banished to live in a tent for doing this to a Humber? No, I don't think so.
If someone wants to do this then hey ho. Someone must have got a lot of pleasure from building it.

This Humber was on the car-show circuit for many years, always changing, so it must have really meant a lot to someone and absolutely masses of ongoing work. It was a hearse at one point although the blurry pics I've seen are too shit pic quality to post. At one time it had the Humber straight 6 with an offset bonnet scoop for the carb. Seen here with gen supercharged Chevy V8.

The 100+ XJS from around 1979/80.
Wonder if it's still around.
Not home-built, but custom built from a new shell for advertising purposes. Fitted with a 454 Chevy V8.
100+ were suppliers of fat custom wheels, etc.

Edit - road tax was due November 1981.
Awww, had visions of it still being used on a farm or something, piled up with haybales and caked in cowshit.
But then you don't need road tax on private land. Who knows.

This "59 Edsel Ranchero" conversion also showed up at a few local gatherings but I haven't seen it for a good while.   It ran a small block Chevy for some reason!   Neat, though....

On the other hand, I thought these were rather a good idea considering they're only £649 and Disco rear floors rot like it's their job:

Isn't that maxi an 1800 ute with maxi front panels? The chavette is south American & I believe a fibreglass body.
Always thought an Allegro estate would make a good looking pick-up.

Couple Maesto van's converted to pickups. The blue one was made at Cowley I believe and the green one is alot more refined, made by a conversion company. I've had to push the thought of converting mine away  :-P

When I first saw it I just thought it was an 1800 ute and thought that doesnt count. It took a few seconds before the Maxi bit sunk in. It certainly has the profile of an 1800 ute, but I don't know how easy it would be to put a Maxi front on. I'm trying to think of reasons why it wouldnt work but none spring to mind.

Maxi, converted to pick-up, then a camper thing added.

It may well have started life as an 1800 Ute, but it has been extensively modified to look like a Maxi.

Here we can see it also has a Maxi arse to match its Maxi face, It also has the filler flap from a Maxi located in a different place than the 1800.

My money says it also has a Maxi interior and dashboard.

Maxis are significantly narrower than Landcrabs so you can't just put the front of one on the other. That Maxi ute has had an awful lot of work for no apparent reason when you could buy an 1800 ute off the shelf.

 

What about a Volvo pickup? Converted by a Welsh farmer to carry hay and the current owner apparently also has a couple of 740 pickups. I remember seeing a blue one when I worked in Milton Keynes so I guess it must have been one of his.
