    Convoy and Pilot cease production

    Sadly as part of the deal that helped LDV recover the old models have been canned.

    OK. I'll re-phrase that. How many Pilot's and Convoy's were they turning out before the crash.

    Convoy about 3-4,000, mainly special vehicles, Minibus, council speced vehicle.

    Pilot had dropped to a trickle.

    The Convoy Special Vehicle variants were good business, and I am surprised they have dropped it before all the chassis cab versions/minibus of Maxus are ready to step in.

    Hardly supprising really since it"s been around since about 1976 & barely changed. Is there not a replacement for it?

    Range Rover Evoque Pure Tech In Barollo Black With Custom Paint Etc Additions.
    Rover 25GSi-Firefrost Red.
    MG ZR-Express 105-Firefrost Red (Special Build total spec).
    MG Montego 2.0i-Flame Red.

    There were meant to be two basic models of maxus when it was developed with Daewoo in the late 1990's. I think only the larger one has made the cut. So no I don't think Pilot has a direct replacement as such.

    It had changed more than you might think since 1975, but I know what you mean!

    Another nail in the BL coffin. Is there anything BL left now that the Freelander has all but ceased production?

    I'm really tempted to buy a Pilot at the moment, but there is a SD1 catching my eye. This is the first time in over 8 years I've been without a van since vandals destroyed my Maestro van a few months ago.
