Launched in January 1961 for Austins and February for Morris badged examples, the Mini Pickup was initially produced in batches of six, then 12 and on to 48. Production ended in 1983.

This very pretty West Country Mini pickup is very smartly presented in Sandglow with black trim. It has the 998cc four cylinder engine with a four speed manual gearbox. It can truly be described as very good in respect of the bodywork and the cab is equally good (although the driver’s door could be adjusted). We understand that the seats are probably original. The rear tilt and deck are all good and there is a full vinyl cover for the load area.

Clearly a full restoration has been carried out on this vehicle as evidenced by invoices for £16,750 on file from Mini specialists G.C. Motors of Swanley Kent. With this pickup comes a current V5C registration certificate, copies of old MOT test certificates and the said invoice from G.C. Motors.

This is an excellent opportunity to purchase one of these remarkable vehicles in almost showroom condition. Great fun and very useful.
