The creation of the Mini branding in 1969 simplified things to Mini Van and Mini Pick-up and in 1978, the commercial vehicles were renamed 'Mini 95' to reflect the 0.95 ton gross weight of the van and pick-up and an 'L' pack was introduced in 1979. The 'L' pack consisted of hound's-tooth cloth centre sections to the seats, front carpets, a passenger sun visor and more sound-proofing.

This particular Pick-up is a one-off. The car was built in the mid-1990s by British Motor Heritage as a special project. Unusual features include wind-up windows, a slightly longer cabin area, SPI fuel injected 1275cc engine and Cooper 'S' brakes.

Finished in Caribbean Blue and having covered just 6,780 miles, this Mini Pick-up is in lovely all round condition and a stunning 'head turner' on the road.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
