1979 Mini Pickup
Here’s a genuine 1979 Mini Pickup. This is a MK4 Mini Pickup. The exterior is almost similar to MK3/MKIII Mini but there are a few parts under the hood were upgraded. The first Mini Pick-up were introduced in 1961 under the production of Austin Seven Pick-up. The car utilized the same floor pan as the Austin Se7en and Morris Minivan but had a flat loading bay and self-contained cabin. The drop-down tailgate at the rear of the load bay is what makes this car a unique one in Mini Timeline & History.
Painted in yellow, the owner of this Mini Pickup tries to keep it as original as possible. A pair of stainless steel side mirror were added to the car to make it look shining.
Original 10-inch wheel with chrome center cap makes the car look like an old-new pickup truck in this era.
Gorgeous front look. Does it look like a normal MK1 Mini if you don’t see the tailgate?
A MINI 95 decal is added to the drop-down tailgate of this car.
Nice classic steering wheel and original Mini seat.
It is nice to see the owner make the interior of a Mini as simple as possible. A center speedometer and a few important switches for wipers, headlamps, signals and etc. In fact, three pedals are what you need the most!
