As someone who had a pick up for many years I did tens of thousands of miles in mine in reasonable comfort but with this one I'd find the interior difficult to live with - the console restricts leg room and the later dashboard with little storage makes for a more claustrophobic feel.

 

Interesting take on how the Mini could have looked if the design had evolved more than it did.  I think they'll be lucky to get what they're asking though.

I do like the pickups, but I like them unmolested, their simplicity in my view is what makes them. I do like the wood in the back though. But does it protect the load bay or hide the rot I wonder (ie rots away under the wood unbeknown to the owner - I am not suggesting he has covered up rot)

The real shame here is someone has ruined a perfectly good pick-up to create this dogs dinner.

Certainly not to my taste, 

 

But I am sure this was built in the ealy 2000's and was considered 'very cool' then

One man's meat is another man's poison and all that, and I am sure the guy who did it loves it. But it does certainly have a face only a mother could love. It's like when I was a teenager, a friend had a new girlfriend who he said was really pretty - I just couldn't see it myself. 

 

That is certainly playing to a VERY limited market, especially at that price.

not my cup of tea, but does, from the photos, appear to have been done to a reasonably high standard.

 

in terms of ugliest mini; no, not by a long shot.  i think that title goes to the 6 wheeler crew cab pickup that looked like it was made by grafting the back end of a chopped van onto a saloon.

It'd certainly interesting. But not all bad. The Corsa headlights do it no favours.

If he loved it that much he wouldn't be selling it though, unless he thinks there are more deranged people out there who'd also part with big money to buy that heap.

Here's another contender. Kermit green, with chrome eyelashes, but wait until you see the rear end ...
