The British market is no stranger to budget car based pick up trucks, and between 2003 and 2007 we had the Proton Jumbuck to get our teeth into.
By working vehicle standards build quality was not a strong point of this 1.5 litre petrol engined truck, with its fixtures and fittings apparently made from the same plastic they package chicken kievs in, but the handling was tuned by Lotus. In fact, if you mention the Jumbuck to the famous British sports car brand s chassis engineers they ll show their pride in the project by avoiding eye contact, shuffling their feet and changing the subject.
