I gotta sell it.. Pay off college Email me at [email protected]
<table border="0" align="center"><tbody><tr><td><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">1969 Austin Mini Pickup</span></p><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">This is a completely restored 1969 Austin Mini Pickup with less than 3,000 miles since restoration (finished restoration couple years ago)! The odometer reads 20,0XX miles. This vehicle went through a very long and thorough process to get to where it sits now. There are thousands of hours and dollars invested. I have a box full of receipts and there is very few reused parts during this restore. Originally this pickup was going to be raced, but that plan changed during the ground up restoration. You will see some race featured items on this vehicle, but it is 100% street legal. This vehicle has been listed a couple times on ebay now and I am willing to hear offers. I am seeking to sell this so I can pay off my college debt. So the purchase is going to a worthy cause. </span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"><img style="width: 638px; height: 423px" src="http://homepage.mac.com/k_e_l/.Pictures/Mini_Pickup/Interior_25.jpg" alt="" width="638" height="423" /> </span><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"><img style="width: 571px; height: 423px" src="http://homepage.mac.com/k_e_l/.Pictures/Mini_Pickup/Exterior_4.jpg" alt="" width="571" height="423" /> </span><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"><img style="width: 592px; height: 423px" src="http://homepage.mac.com/k_e_l/.Pictures/Mini_Pickup/Exterior_31.jpg" alt="" width="592" height="423" /> </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><strong><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">Body/Exterior</span></strong><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"> </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">- Stripped bare and primered with a professional urethane based primer </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">- Painted- Lexus IS300 Yellow Base coat with Clear coat Urethane Paint </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">- Removable front clip </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">- Fiberglass tailgate </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">- Official Zeemax Body Kit </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">- 13x7 Superlite wheels with 175/50/13 Sumitomo Tires (less than 30 miles on tires and wheels) </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">- Silverstar Headlights </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><strong><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">Engine</span></strong><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"> ($10k+ invested in just the engine!!) </span><p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium"></span></p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: medium">- 1340cc 10.5:1 compression Cooper S Engine with all new internal parts!

I love these things. There is a roofing company by me that uses one....for advertising.

Best of luck on the sale, very cool ride!

Very nice. Isn't the 649 cam a bit extreme for road use though?

The 649 cam is a great cam for racing and street use. If you put the 3.44 diff in, then you got yourself a great racer. I put the 2.91 for highway cruising but i wanted the engine to be somewhat street ready... so i put the 1.75 single HIF6 on it. If I put the duals or weber on there, then I would just race it.

O ya.. that center console is light weight. I made it from red oak and planed it down. Probably weights 4 lbs maybe 6 most.
