1972 Austin Mini Pickup1 min read
1972 Austin Mini PickupWith its simple exterior, boxy frame and appropriately proportioned lines, the Austin Mini is easily one of the cutest cars ever produced. When it comes to cars, we’re much more interested in the functional than we are the cute, which is why this 1972 Austin Mini Pickup conversion checks all our boxes. It retrains all the diminutive character of the original while still being outfitted with a pickup bed that makes it much more than your average grocery getter. When you combine that functional upgrade with the whole host of technical upgrades you have a recipe for a daily driver that’s much more than what you bargained for. 1,275 cc four-cylinder engine with dual SU carburetors mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Dual Talbot-style mirrors. Wood-slat pickup bed. Mountney steering wheel. Clarion radio. Blaupunkt speakers. Hidden glovebox with Sunpro Super Tach II. This tiny vehicle has it all and then some. This 1972 Austin Mini Pickup will roll across the auction block in Indiana as part of RM Sotheby’s Elkhart Collection auction at the beginning of May.
