Mini Custom Pick Up
Designed as a utility vehicle, with an open top rear cargo area and a tail-gate, the pick-up sits on the slightly longer mini van platform measuring 11ft in length and approx. 4ft wide. The original concept was of a very basic “no frills “ design, however it has become quite the thing these days, for these fun little trucks to be restored to high levels of luxury and speed.

This particular pick-up has been subjected to an 8 year labour of love. Whereby with the exception of the layout nothing has been left untouched.
The bodywork has been customized and enhanced and then treated to a beautiful twin pack and lacquer paintwork job in metallic royal blue .
Under the bonnet is a sight to behold, highly polished rocker cover, a fantastic looking engine which has been upgraded to 998cc Mini Cooper “spec” with twin SU carburettors. If you like engines you will love this.
Internally the dashboard has been created from highly polished Walnut featuring an array of knobs and dials, where all the usual suspects are present. The electronics are quite special, there are no external door handles. The doors are unlocked electronically by a button on the key fob, this also controls the alarm system..
The rear storage area has been enhanced by the addition of a superbly hand-crafted and polished mahogany bed together with a checkerplate lining.
Originally produced on the 1st of November 1980 it is now less than 1 year away from free road tax and MOT exemption. Complete with V5 and current MOT until 6th of May 2020. This is the ultimate luxury Pocket-Rocket small truck.
