"Very useful for trips to the local tip"

If I took that to the tip I'd be tempted to leave it

Funny now you've mentioned this I remember that BMG the former Rover dealer in Milton Keynes (Bletchley) had a 3-door Rover 200 'van' back in the early 1990s which had blacked out windows that were metal panelled inside!

ive seen a maestro van chopped into a pick up around where i live, but i guess that is an even simpler conversion. looks good though
Didn't Austin Rover produce a Maestro pick up?

No. But there were/are quite a number of Maestro vans with their roofs hacked off. I'm sure a company did pickup conversions on the Maestro van though.

There's a P-reg Freelander pickup knocking around Gaydon still. Don't think it was ever offered as a production model mind - I think it was a hacked-about former prototype.

I could be really tempted with that - from the pics it looks like a decent enough job although I agree with earlier sentiments about the tailgate (or lack thereof...)

There are some sweet looking nissan skyline pick-ups knocking about in Japan. My mate and i were only talking about how good a 200 coupe would look as a pick-up on Sunday......:getcoat:

The bodywork is surprisingly good except that back panel behind the seats. Having gone to all that trouble whoever did it has just stuck some metal struts inside the loading area and lined it with wood!It's a dog that could easily have been the dogs danglies.

Agreed - it really needs a properly engineered rear window section IMO...
