A Jumbuck, in case you′re wondering, is a sheep. The name comes from Australia, where this pick-up is still a favourite with surfers.
Launched in the UK in 2003, the Proton Jumbuck pick-up was Proton′s first entry into the light commercial vehicle market. Based on the Proton Wira chassis, the Jumbuck also benefited from Lotus ride and handling and a Lotus-developed ladder rack design, which gave it over 600kg of carrying capacity.
As one of only a handful of sub-one-ton pick-ups available at the time, the Jumbuck was reliable and great value for money.
