We are very pleased to offer a truly stunning and fully restored 1982 Austin Mini pickup. This fabulous machine has just undergone and extensive and detailed restoration to a very high standard with a comprehensive list of new parts and panels and is accompanied with a large folder of receipts and a fully documented photo file. This Pickup is one of the best I have seen and is presented in a ready to go and enjoy condition.
Finished in the very sexy Yukon Grey, the looks are subtly enhanced with Dunlop D1 wheels with new Yokohama 032R tyres and finished with a MK1 grille and moustache and early rear ligts. This Pickup has a wonderful presence and gets lots of attention and admiration. It has a recorded mileage of 26k and only 6 previous keepers and is from the last build year.
The restoration was very thorough and completed using all Heritage panels and consisted of inner and outer wings, door steps, valances, rear bulk head and complete floor pan. It has been completely repainted top to bottom so is the same colour underneath and has also been waxoiled. At the same time the subframes have been shotblasted and rebuilt with all new parts, Cooper S disc brakes were fitted with braided hoses up front and the rest of the running gear has also been renewed. At the same time the wiring loom was replaced along with many other parts, its a very long and comprehensive list indeed.
The interior is very well presented with new carpets and its original seats. It is set off by a wonderful Moto-Lita steering wheel and it also has a three clock binnacle. The simplicity of the Pickup interior is still very much evident and this Mini has an original feel to it which was intended right from the start. There is also a discreet audio system situated behind the rear seats that consists of two speakers, an amp and an AUX lead so music can be played directly from a phone and its completely out of sight. There is also a battery cut off switch. As you can see form the pics the engine bay is also nicely detailed.
This Pickup also has an original tilt cover and frame which I have left fitted for the pics, it also has its original cover that will need to be restored if the new keeper wants this fitted.
On the road this Pickup drives very well. The original 998 engine pulls well through a smooth gearbox and holds strong oil pressure. handling is very good and the grip is exceptional through the Yoko A032R tyres. There is an RC40 exhaust fitted for a sublte burble all making for one very classy Pickup indeed. Get ready for all the attention as everybody wants to talk about it when its out and about and rightly so. This Pickup could easily be entered into any show or just simply be the envy of all your friends, in this condition its a fantastic propsosition and will give its lucky new keeper many years of happy motoring.
The Pickup has a long MOT, is fully serviced and is ready to go. Viewings are welcome to appreciate its condition and I am happy to answer questions you may have either through here or on 07752414395 or 01425 839617 (Paul)
