Hey All
Well here she is a 1968 mini pick up
She starts. she runs. she stops. she's not dropping to bits. No MOT
I imported her back in December with the view to bring her back to her formerglory when I got settled back in the UK. MMmm it seemed a good idea at the time !!!But the reality. Young family. New career. money.
I've friends over in South Africa and they bought her and had her shipped over.
I picked up the tab and paid the import tax and it really went from there. She's beenin South Africa all her life (Dry Weather) and the car reflects that too.
A father and son resurrected her back in S Africa and the family had a tragedy andit sat in the garage ever since (years & years) !!! 
When she entered the UK she was a none runner because she'd sat in a garagesooooo loooong !!!For instance her distributor had varying forms of different fungi growing out of it :/so. Fuel flush. spark plugs. oil filter. oil change. HT leads. full distributor rebuild (£262. 80 with paperwork) brake shoes. seals. back plates cables and fluid so she runs and she stops too.
Odd mods. For some reason when father and son did their thing they de-seemed (not the roof thankheavens) her and all of the under body received a thin layer of fibre glass both inside andout (protection I suspect) and the under door sills where . take a look at the pictures they speak 1000 words. Oh and she runs on a Holly carburetor too (lill extreme) with a fuel pump.  
She has after market seats fitted. the usual cross member that's welded on the floorthat the usual pick up seats attach to has been modded to fit the aftermarket seats (pics reflect)
I do have mini pick up seats along with a proper steering wheel which can be purchasedseparately if so desired.
Oh. I did buy some leather KA seats which may fit if modded. purchased separately if desired.
Have more pictures on request. tried to get as much of the bodywork as possible into 12pictures.
Tax was paid with HMRC when she entered into the UK
Next stage would be to get her UK registered (age reflected plate)
Any questions. more pictures. viewings. gimme a call 07734 262424
Oh she is advertised elsewhere so. may disappear !!! 
Hole in passenger foot well. Mainly due to me and vehicle ramp skidding out whilst taking pictures of the underside for this EBAY-advertisment (last picture)!!! Not drastic. and a chunk out of front wheel arch driver side (filler) dinked out whilst sorting brakes out. about size of a 50p.
Cash on collection please
L8r.
Forgot to mention. she has windey up windows !!!
To register vehicle:
MOT the vehicle. on VIN and South African number plate. Insurance is not needed. Fill in form V55/5. Fee £55. 00South African log book (Supplied on purchase)2 forms of IDSend to DVLA and you will have an age related UK plate hopefully in 7-10 days
Poss swop. what you got ???
