Mini pick up. Restoration project, lots of spare parts, comes with the trailer. | eBay

 

They were shitting awful.

I've always wanted a Mini pickup.  Prices are through the roof now but just seeing one makes me smile indulgently.

I always thought I might like a mini pick up, but I'm not sure it offers the secure practicality of a Van.  Also I'd love this pickup, but think there are better ways of spending money.

Why? I could imagine some sort of V6 out of a Rover 75 being forced into the engine bay (No idea how) but a poxy 1.4 out of a polo? Not worth the effort.  Who was it that was shoehorning a big VAG engine into a little Lupo. Thats more the spirit.

I'd imagine it'd probably been engine raped for a Mini and the Polo engine was the easiest way to get it mobile again.

This is just lovely, and not too badly priced either at £4500 I think.

My god that is hugely tempting as a ULEZ exempt London wagon.

Has he got a horizontal radiator in there above the gearbox? I'm sure that must have a fantastic throughput of air if so.

Would it be any worse than the vertical sideways-mounted rad that many A-serieses were equipped with?  I assume it has an electric fan underneath to lend a helping hand.

I've been wondering for a while Billy - how do you come up with these random anagrams?  Do you put every vehicle name into an anagram generator to see if it comes up with something amusing, or do you have some kind of weird anagram-spotting brain?

No, I just get bored easily  (like you didn't know) and if anything looks like it'll spell 'minge' in the title, then it's game on.

Jonny Smith is in the process of wedging a V6 out of an 827 into one.

I've driven and owned A series cars, and VW 1.4 engined cars, and you know what, the A series is in every way a better engine than that shit-awful VW thing.

I like the idea of an engine swap, but all that work just to make an Allegro worse than before you started?

**And those LED headlights look shit. So do the wheels. And the WobSopon body kit.

I suppose it's a minor detail, but wouldn't you need bespoke driveshafts to mate the VW gearbox to the Allegro hubs?  TBF the ad does mention "not connected up....."
