When you run into something this unique and affordable, your imagination starts to go into overdrive. This 1981 Austin Mini Truck combines the iconic classic look we all love with some added pickup practicality. So it seems like the perfect vehicle to do everything from be the support truck for you British exotic to just being a fun presentation all on its own.

If you're British, then this is a pure nostalgia machine (and if you're not this is just a very cool presentation.) It's the original Mini look, and so that front end is iconic. But the rear is a useful truck bed. So we know you already love the distinction this one brings. These little guys are not exactly ready for farm chores, but it would be a pretty cool to make urban deliveries. And the current condition has it ready to earn its keep. So those broad and clean sides are just ready for you company's logo (or maybe you just want to make one up.) More than just a practical side, this one has some style. The green paint is handsome with the white roof. It's done to be a performance-style Cooper machine with wider wheels, fender flares, and the white stripes on the hood (bonnet). And there are some nice details, like the clear headlights, upgraded grille, and fasteners for a tonneau.

There's a bit more Cooper attitude inside with the dual racing bucket seats. This is right-hand drive machine for that added dose of British charm. Of course, when a classic is this small, it almost doesn't matter which side you drive it from. The controls are laid out nicely for driving with a grippy three-spoke steering wheel, a gearshift that's always in easy reach, and a cool Smiths gauge package with large central speedo.

Under the hood is a correct 998cc motor. This A-Series engine is a well-known and widely used powerplant that found a home in plenty of British vehicles. It's part of the backbone of English motoring, which makes it quite hardy and easy parts availability. When matched with the four-speed manual transmission, the performance can be quite nippy. Add in power front disc brakes and steering that is so exact it feels telepathic, and you've got in your hands all the reasons why people are passionate about driving - even in a pickup!

It's a rarity to see a Mini pickup in the USA. So at this price, you know you have to act quickly to take home the coolest little truck around. Call today!!!
