I bought this pick up in need of a full restoration in April 2005 from a farm in Gloucestershire.

Over the next few years I stripped apart and fully rebuilt the pickup with a bare metal re-spray by a professional bodywork garage. No expense was spared. everything has been bought brand new. Minisports and Somerford Minis Spares have received close to £6000. this does not include the engine.

The Interior / exterior is:

Stack ST700 rev counter. with oil pressure. water temperature and speedo sensor.

4 pot Minisport 7. 9" vented and grooved discs on the front. fully adjustable suspension tie rods and bottom arms. The suspension has had a four wheel alignment with 1. 5° negative camber on the front.

Gaz coil overs all round.

Minifins with spacers on the rear. along with a beam axle

MB racing wheels with Yokohama's A032R. with plenty of tread left on them.

Cobra Le Mans reclining seats. useful to get the extra leg room. I am 6ft and can comfortably drive the pick up.

The Ifor Williams rear cover will come with it. along with a specialist covers external cover.  

All subframes powder coated. all bushes renewed with Poly ones.

The engine is a Specialist Components 1380 16V engine RS Spec.

This was professionally built by them. with the fuel injection set up by them on a dyno. I have the print outs from the dyno giving the power (135bhp at 7500 rpm) and torque figures (95lbft).

The engine has SC's own fuel injection system allowing hot starts without any problems.

4 core aluminium radtech radiator. with an electric Kenlowe fan.

Stainless steel Powerflow exhaust.

Thermo tech exhaust wrap and cover.  

Fast road clutch and X pin differential

Insurance was ~£240 via Adrian Flux

It is currently SORN. but I will get an MOT for it.

Very reluctant sale. nbsp;but a house move forces the sale.

I am open to sensible offers. but please no test pilots or day dreamers.

Please call for any questions

Good afternoon. I found this advert in an archive on Google. I own this pickup now and am looking for the owner who built it originally.
