Classic Mini Pickups are very rare so we are excited to be able to do the restoration on this one. Like all Minis, this one has had its fair share of bad repairs and tasteless modifications. Thankfully, the new owner wants to return the little truck to its original condition. That means out with the 1275cc engine and in with a 848cc lump from late 1961, complete with pudding stirrer gear shift.
We began by stripping the car down to a bare shell. Then we had remove all of the filler and under seal before it could be sandblasted. Once blasted the restoration work can begin. Check back for updates on our classic mini pickup restoration over the coming months.
