1971 Austin Mini Pick-up
This is an Austin 1971 original factory built Austin mini pick-up. 58,179 of these utility vehicles were built between 1961 & 1982.
We are currently restoring this unique 1971 Austin Mini Pick-up. So far it has been stripped down to the bare shell. Then placed on one of our custom built mobile rotisserie. The shell has been sand blasted and primed and is now ready for panel work.
The Pick-up is destined to become our work pick-up and promotional vehicle. Watch this space for more updates...
